Thank you for the warming of my feet in the
putting up with using you as a pillow lying
in the grass,
those obedience classes you thought you
the kids giving you lovins when you'd rather
Thank you for the barks of alarm when
trouble was near,
the tattling when the kids were going to
leave the yard.
The joy of the blowong coat in the
seeing your fur cover the grass like
Thank you for letting me drag you for walks,
For all the holes you dug,
the ear mites we tried to fight and the fun
of letting me chase you with drops,
and darn the pesky leaves going across the
yard that scared you to death.
Thank you for the huge hugs you gave,
the wet kisses,
I am so sorry your life had to end this way
and know I miss you every single day.
As I sit in the window and look for
your white fluff in the dark of the night
listen for your bark fighting off evil to
protect your family,
I cry for all the love you gave and and the
bond we shared.
You were not only my friend but you were my
you were not only a dog to me you were much
more and I hope you knew.
I was glad I had been outside with you the
night before watching the stars
I know your in a wonderful place kept safe
and I hope you know you were loved.
The name Orion was given to you and now has
so much more meaning...keeper of the stars.
I miss you my friend
I love you Cherie'
