My Polly, The Greatest Collie in the World
by Paula Caretti
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.
