My Polly, The Greatest Collie in the World

Polly

I got Polly when she was 11 weeks old. From the instant I got her I felt a love I never knew in me. Polly was simply the most beautiful dog in the world and the nicest.

I told Polly every day of her life that I loved her with all my heart from here to eternity and back again. I would stand across the room and cover my heart and signal to her that I loved her.

Most of all, I was humbled by her love for me. I was in awe of her magnificence. I was honored to take care of her. Polly felt holy to me, like she knew more about life than I could ever know.

She would speak to me through those eyes. Oh those penetrating eyes. How I miss the words she spoke to me through those eyes.

My heart is broken and I feel pain like I never knew before, but I know she is happy and free of pain and stress. It was her time.

I will see you on the other side, my love. I love you forever and ever.

My Polly passed on Friday August 17, 2012. She was 13 years old.

Polly,

It's one year since you left, and I miss you very much.

See you on the other side. My love is always with you, forever and ever.

You are the best teacher, friend, and collie I'll ever know. You are mine.
