Chuckie - A Pet Memorial Poem

(dallas, texas)

The sky is gray,the leaves are falling.

The chill of Fall is in the air...
And I am so sad,
Because my little buddy is gone.
He was old, no hair on his tail,
Kind of like the Velveteen Rabbit,
Character, gentleness, and a heart of gold..
He coughed at night, and his breathing had become labored.
He stumbled as he loped to his favorite place on his walk..
His head nodding as it had since he was a puppy..
I could see it in his face.
His life was fading away as the lump in his neck grew larger.
One more day..
One more wet kiss,
One more night sleeping at my feet.
He cried at night..
I cradled him with my hands,
Feeling his brave heart grow weaker.
Goodbye little buddy...
My best friend.
And I am so sad...

My Best Friend
by: Linda

I was so sad when i read your poem about your little buddy and friend. I know you must really miss her, I lost my dog because some idiot ran over my dog. He was a great dog and he really liked people. Well my neighbor"s son thought it might be cute to run over him. So I was so mad i wanted to poison his dog but i thought then that why should i kill his dog, his dog did not need to pay for his masters stupidity. So we buried my dog and said a prayer over him and i know he's in puppy heaven. So any one out there that has a dog or cat love them like they are your kids cause you never know when some idiot will take them from you.So Mr. Carl Herman I am proud to know there out in this world love their pets. The world should have a parade for all these animals.
