Goodbye Dear Friend

Postby Beth » October 5th, 2008, 1:27 pm

I know words will not do justice to what I want to express. I originally read this yesterday but just could not post.

Christine, I am so deeply sorry to hear of your horrible loss. You were the ultimate in doggy-mommies. Ever since I "met" you, I have admired and looked up to you. I am sitting here with tears streaming when I think about this.

Again, I am so deeply sorry.

It was a difficult and unselfish decision you made to surrender Mick into "That Good Night".

I will miss seeing new pictures of Mick and hearing about new antics and success stories. I haven't been here for long, but I know that Mick is one very special dog, and you are a special person for caring so deeply for and about him, Christine. :hug3:

I don't ever have the right thing to say when something like this happens. I know words won't take away any of the pain, and I wish they could.

Mickey was an awesome boy. I LOVED seeing his smiling Goofy face and will NEVER forget him.

Don't worry about him... I know that Sock-M is showing him the ropes as they entertain everyone up in heaven with all the other greats who have gone and they are watch over us as angels now.

My tears thoughts prayers and huge cyber space hugs are coming at you. I hope that helps a little.

You will be greatly missed!

First off, i'd like to say i'm so sorry to hear of your losses ...

My heart is crying for you , Mick was a happy go lucky guy even threw him being sick....those big bully smiles were a one in a million. I always loved looking at his pictures, cause he always had that big smile on his face.

And it's true, they find us, they give us unconditional love. And that 7 years of his love is some thing that you will always hold dear to you.

At Christmas time, reading your story about how he loved the gifts and unwrapping them, and my heart went out , and Miss Dottie and I sent him a bunch of toys, cause in my heart it felt like it was the right thing to do, to make him happy. And we'll always treasure the silver Angel necklece you sent, in fact Miss Dottie wears it on her collar. Thank you so much for that.

Like others said, Mick was a big part of this forum and our lives on here, some times we don't post, but I am always reading things on here, and if I seen it was a post from you, I always read it cause I knew it would bring a smile to our face.

Thank you Mick and Christine for sharing your life with us.

Christine, i'm sorry I read this after your double loss, our hearts here go out to you... and you will be in our prayers.

If you ever need any thing let us know.

We all love you Christine...

Love Emi and family.

I stood beside your bed last night, I came to have a peep.
I could see that you were crying, You found it hard to sleep.
I whined to you so softly as you brushed away a tear,
"It's me, I haven't left you, I'm well, I'm fine, I'm here."
I was close to you at breakfast, I watched you pour the tea,
You were thinking of the many times your hands reached down to me.

I was with you at the shops today, Your arms were getting sore.
I longed to take your parcels, I wish I could do more.
I was with you at my grave today, You tend it with such care.
I want to reassure you, that I'm not lying there.
I walked with you towards the house, as you fumbled for your key.
I gently put my paw on you, I smiled and said "It's me."

You looked so very tired, and sank into a chair.
I tried so hard to let you know, that I was standing there.
It's possible for me to be so near you everyday
To say to you with certainty, "I never went away."
You sat there very quietly, then smiled, I think you knew ...
In the stillness of that evening, I was very close to you.

The day is over... I smile and watch you yawning
And say "goodnight, God bless, I'll see you in the morning."
And when the time is right for you to cross the brief divide,
I'll rush across to greet you and we'll stand, side by side.
I have so many things to show you, there is so much for you to see.
Be patient, live your journey out ... then come home to be with me.
