We got Teddy in April 1999 from a breeder in CT. We loved him as soon as we saw him. You couldn't help falling in love with that face. He was not used to his new home so he did not bark for about a month. Then we couldn't shut him up. How I wish I could hear him now. Teddy would love to go for walks and look out the living room window so he could see who was coming in the house. He was very protective of his surroundings. When it was thundering outside he would bury his head in the couch as if he could hide from the noise. He would put his head on your lap to beg for food at dinnertime. I just couldn't resist. He did it even with company. He hated the UPS man but loved the mailman because the mailman would give him a treat when he delivered the mail. When he came in from walks he would run around the house all happy. When he was 10 he developed Cushings disease and in Nov 2012 he was diagnosed with lung cancer. He lived for 9 months. Around the middle of August I noticed he was panting more, he lost his eyesight and hearing and was bumping into things. We blocked just about every corner of the house and closed all doors but he still managed to get stuck somewhere. But he still went outside. Around August 19 his appetite was diminishing and I knew that the end was coming. August 21 he stopped eating and couldn't hold in anything. We took him to the vet around 9am August 22. I said to myself if Teddy turned around and tried to get out of the vet's office, I would have brought him home but instead he went on the table. His panting stopped. We said our goodbyes, holding him, crying out eyes out. I held him until he passed. You will always be in my heart forever, my Angel Teddy.
Time for me to go now, I won't say goodbye; Look for me in rainbows, way up in the sky. In the morning sunrise when all the world is new, Just look for me and love me, as you know I loved youTime for me to leave you, I won't say;goodbye; Look for me in rainbows, high up in the sky. In the evening sunset, when all the world is through, just look for me and love me, and I'll be close to you. It won't be forever, the day will come and then my loving arms will hold you, when we meet again. Time for us to part now, we won't say goodbye; look for me in rainbows, shining in the sky. Every waking moment, and all your whole life though just look for me and love, as you know I loved you.
To Those Who Love & Those Who Love Me
When I am gone, release me, let me go-
I have so many things to see and do.
You must not tie yourself to me with tears,
Be happy that we had so many years.
I gave you my love, you can only guess
How much you gave me in happiness.
I thank you for the love you have each shown.
But now it is time I traveled alone.
So grieve awhile for me if grieve you must,
Then let your grief be comforted by trust,
It is only for a while that we must part,
So bless the memories within your heart,
I will not be far away, for life goes on,
So if you need me, call and I will come.
Though you cannot see or touch me, I will be near.
And if you listen with your heart, you will hear
All my love around you soft and clear.
And then, when you must come this way alone,
I will greet you with a smile and "Welcome Home".
