Forever My Little Buddy

by Lavern Dahlgren
(Mayerthorpe, AB. Canada)

You left me yesterday while my daughter watched you. I didn't make it back in time. But I think you did that on purpose so I wouldn't see you go.

I saw you in the window and waved goodbye but I didn't think it would be the final one. I know you were holding on, I know you tried to go sooner, but I couldn't let you.

I hope you are better now and I hope you come and visit me all the time. You had three owners before me and lots of separation anxiety. You were the nicest, loving little dog who went everywhere with me. We had fun.

I know you loved our home and I love you so much. I'm going to miss you horribly. The grandchildren are missing you, too.

Go see your adopted brother Ralph, and Ricki, your kitty friend who loved you so much that he would rub against you all the time. I hope he is rubbing on you right now, greeting you on the other side.

I know you are better and young again. I know you will greet me and Dad when we get to the other side. See you then, my Buddy boy.
