I lost a treasured friend today
The little dog who used to lay his gentle head upon my shoulder And shared his silent thoughts with me.
He’ll come no longer to my call
Retrieve no more his favourite ball A voice far greater than my own Has called him to his golden throne.
Although my eyes are filled with tears
I thank him for the happy years And for his love and loyalty. __________________ “Dogs are our link to paradise. They don't know evil or jealousy or discontent.

Oh no! I’m so sorry, HulaGirl. I love your poem - what a perfect tribute to your wonderful, loving companion. He was a very lucky soul to be so loved by you.

Oh no --- Bono!
I'm so sorry, Martine, I had no idea he was sick. You rescued him and gave him the best life. I'm sure you know that, and those words may seem hollow in light of your loss, but I hope one day they will give you some comfort. I am so, so sorry. This is what sucks about having pets. I've been through it many times, as have you. I wish they lived longer. Beautiful, heart wrenching, poem. My brother is going through the same thing with their dog. She's had health issues but with meds, etc, (swimming therapy, laser treatment) they managed to keep her symptoms under control. Now, though, I am afraid they can no longer do that as she'd become worse. I fear they will have to make a decision. Take care of yourself. xo

I'm sorry for your loss. I remember how much it hurt when my tabby Tiger passed away, so I know how you feel.

Oh Martine. One of life's worst heartbreaks. I was so happy to hear of your rescue of him a few years back. He was a real cutie.
Your poem in tribute to Bono is so touching. I take comfort in the fact the Pope says we will see our fellow four-legged friends again. __________________ And God said "let there be light".
