Angel Dog

It is true...I was a Democrat. But, I was a democrat of a different breed.

Daily, each morning, I earned my keep. Dad and I would awaken before the house came to life. He in his jammys and me, just as I am, we would go to the kitchen. Me, tail wagging, him, tail dragging. We did our silent routine as always... he fed me, he petted me... I pooped.

Life was great. Dad and I were great together. I loved him so much. I didn't mind that he gave me one of those silent fence things...good thing, I was just like him, I would have canvassed the earth in time.

So, how did this happen? It was God's will. I gave the best of my heart. I was always glad to see everybody. It was MY JOB! Now, God is going to take care of me forever, for a job well done.

My only regret is...no, on second thought, I have none. I had a great home, and a great family. What more can you ask for?

See you in Heaven.

I loved the way you wrote that Memorial as though it was Angel giving it. That was so very cute! Angel's in Heaven. She had a great life with you all at home. Sorry though that see passed away. Angel sounded like a really special, loving and faithful doggie. Big bear hugs to all of you.

What a great memorial to your Angel Dog. I lost my wonderful companion several months ago, and your story made me smile :) Thanks
