Simple and Sweet

You were not only a dog you were my friend.
So making a decision on your behalf hurts me to no end.
I thank you for all the many years you made my life so bright
And even the times when you would decide to bite.
Letting go is never easy and saying goodbye the same.

I met you back in 1996 and from day one we became friends. Never will I forget the trip back from Florida where you came from my St. Cloud friend.

At that time you were just a dog of about three, so as we reach the new year 2012 you have aged so gracefully, but time is showing the years.

I miss you my friend.

Simple and sweet as can be, you were not only a dog but my friend.
