For Spencer

by Mike Bernhardt
(Forest Grove, Oregon)

Words cannot express the heartbreak nor the loss I feel tonight
As I watch you struggling to grab a breath – knowing your heart can’t win this fight

For all you’ve done and all you’ve given – for the years of unconditional love
It’s now my turn to be the strong one – and help you reach that place above

Where once again you’ll have your youth – run beaches for countless miles
You’ve touched so many people Spencer – your kindness the source of a thousand smiles

No greater creature has walked this earth – your loyalty has been unswerving
You’ve protected me through thick and thin – your wisdom beyond your years
So with morning’s light, I’ll say goodbye my friend – amidst a million tears.

I'm so sorry for your loss. A pet is just like a child. They are loved unconditionally forever and always! Spencer held a very special place in your heart and always will.

We were so sorry to hear about your loss. Spencer was such a cool dog. I always loved the motorcycle picture of Mike and Spencer. May his memory feel your heart!

My heart just sank when I realized that Spencer had passed. He was such a good boy, and left this earth way to soon. Our condolences to Mike, Shady, and Tommy.

My Beloved Spencer
by: Shady

Words can never express how much I loved my precious Spencer. He loved so unconditionally and was always there to please. He loved his brothers Sprocket and Tommy and watched out for them with a brave heart. I only wish I could be as brave in my sorrow.

I am blessed with so many wonderful memories of our life together and thankful for holding him in my arms when my sweet angel drifted away.

I love you forever Spencer. <3

That is such a sweet poem. Shady showed me the one you wrote for Sprocket too-very sweet. Spencer was most definitely loved, and lived a long and happy life!!

I am so sorry for your loss. Losing a beloved 4-legged angel to me is the hardest thing to go through.

That is a beautiful poem/tribute to such a loved little one. May you find peace in knowing you gave him a wonderful life, and that he loved you unconditionally.
