In Memoriam

A Dog Well Remembered..

..For if the dog be well remembered, if sometimes he leaps through
your dreams actual as in life, eyes kindling, laughing, begging, it
matters not where that dog sleeps - on a hill where the wind is
un-rebuked and the trees are roaring, or beside a stream he knew in
puppyhood, or somewhere in the flatness of a pasture land where most
exhilarating cattle graze. It is one to the dog, and all one to
you, and nothing is gained and nothing is lost - if memory lives.
But there is one best place to bury a dog. If you bury him on this
spot, he will come to you when you call - come to you over the grim,
dim frontiers of death, and down the well-remembered path and to
your side again. And though you call a dozen living dogs to heel
they shall not growl at him nor resent his coming, for he belongs
there. People may scoff at you, who see no lightest blade of grass
bent by his footfalls, who hear no whimper, people who may never
really have had a dog. Smile at them, for you shall know something
that is hidden from them. The one best place to bury a good dog is
in the heart of his master.

Losing a dog is never easy, whether they live to be old, or leave us all too soon.  We can be prepared, if we are allowed to know of the impending death of a loved one, be they human or animal...yet we will seldom if ever be "ready".

Over the years, we have loved and lost many dogs.  Some have grown old and left us with a lifetime of happy memories.  Others have left us before we even got the chance to know them.  All of them have a special place in our hearts, and no matter how many dogs find their way into our lives and hearts, there is no way to take the place of those that have gone before.  It doesn't get easier, and their passing always takes a small piece of my heart with them when they go...just as they leave a piece of theirs with me.

This is my tribute to just a handful of the companions that have gone to the bridge to wait for me.  Each day that passes brings me closer to the time we will all be together again.  Until then...I miss you all so very much...
