In loving memory of our Teddy who we love so much. Teddy will be greatly missed and be in our hearts forever.

      Teddy was my best friend for the past 11 years, we did everything together and now that he is gone I am not sure what I am going to do.....  He was more then my pet he was my baby.......

I love you with all of my heart and I miss you so very much. I cant stop thinking about you.  Everyday when I get home I still expect to see you there.  I just never pictured my life without you in it.  Anyone who knew me, knew that you were my heart.  You went everywhere that I went and I spoiled you rotten. There was nothing in this world that I wouldnt do for you.  I remember holding you that Wednesday and telling the vet that I just couldnt do it, I told him I think we are making a mistake.  He let me have a few moments alone with you and as I held you and spoke to you I saw it in your eyes, a different stare you gave me that day.  You didnt look good baby, you looked really sick but I just wasnt ready to let you go.  When the vet came back he told me that you had so much fluid in your lungs, that any slight movement would make you short of breath.  He told me that you would feel better on oxygen, but that there was no way we could put you on oxygen everyday.  I was terrified, I never wanted you to suffer and seeing you in pain was breaking my heart.  I didnt want you to be alone so I stayed with you and told you how much I loved you and how much I was going to miss you.  You feel fast asleep and you looked so peaceful.  I kissed you and kissed you and just didnt want to leave the room. I had you and you had me and as I left you that day I realized that I was all alone in this world now.  I went home and held your baby pillow and cried myself to sleep, I felt so awful because I didnt know if you were ever going to forgive me.  When I woke up the next morning I swear I thought it was a dream, I looked for you and you werent there.  I cant say I excepted the fact that you were gone, it didnt really hit me until I recieved the phone call that your ashes were ready to be picked up.  When I picked your ashes up it was like losing you all over again, but this time it felt real.  Sweetheart, I am so sorry!!!! If I could turn back time I would.  You taught me how to love unconditionally and for that I will always be grateful.  Thank you Teddy for being the best companion that anyone could ever ask for.  You were perfect in every single way and although my heart is broken without you at least I know you are no longer in any pain. 

We will meet again.... over the Rainbow Bridge.... I will hold you again one day.....

You meant everything to me and I will never forget you TEDDY.....

 A Dog's Prayer

 by Beth Norman Harris

Treat me kindly, my beloved master, for no heart in all the world is more grateful for kindness than the loving heart of mine.

Do not break my spirit with a stick, for though I should lick your hand between the blows, your patience and understanding will more quickly teach me the things you would have me do.

Speak to me often, for your voice is the world's sweetest music, as you must know by the fierce wagging of my tail when your footstep falls upon my waiting ear.

When it is cold and wet, please take me inside, for I am now a domesticated animal, no longer used to bitter elements. And I ask no greater glory than the privilege of sitting at your feet beside the hearth. Though you had no home, I would rather follow you through ice and snow than rest upon the softest pillow in the warmest home in all the land, for you are my god and I am your devoted worshipper.

Keep my pan filled with fresh water, for although I should not reproach you were it dry, I cannot tell you when I suffer thirst. Feed me clean food, that I may stay well, to romp and play and do your bidding, to walk by your side, and stand ready, willing and able to protect you with my life should your life be in danger.

And, beloved master, should the great Master see fit to deprive me of my health or sight, do not turn me away from you. Rather hold me gently in your arms as skilled hands grant me the merciful boon of eternal rest -- and I will leave you knowing with the last breath I drew, my fate was ever safest in your hands.

 

     It was about 2 months ago when my sweet baby boy was diagnosed with CHF ( congestive heart failure). He was put on medication and I was told that he wouldn't last much longer.  I was hopeful though, because he has always been a fighter. It was Wednesday May 21st 2008 when I woke up to find him struggling to breath.  I rushed him to the vets and was told he was in respiratory arrest.  They put him on oxygen and took some x-rays and the prognosis was not good.  I went to see him during my lunch hour and  had to make the hardest decision of my life.  I could either take him home and give him more medication in the hopes that he might last a couple of more days or put him down and keep him from suffering.  I decided that he had given me eleven great years and that I should do what is best for him and not put him through anymore pain..

Life just doesnt feel the same without you Teddy.... I just love you so much, there just doesnt seem an end to the pain I feel from losing you.....

I LOVE YOU TEDDY....... Gone but never Forgotten...

DON'T GRIEVE TOO LONG"

Don't grieve too long for now I'm free.
I've followed the path God set for me.
I ran to Him when I heard His call.
I kissed your face and left it all.

I could not stay another day
To bark to love to romp or play.
Games left unplayed must stay that way
I found such peace; it made my day.

My parting has left you with a void.
Please feel it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared your laugh a kiss.
Oh yes these things I too shall miss.

Be not burdened with times of sorrow
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life's been full you've given so much
Your time your love and gentle touch.

Perhaps my time seemed all too brief
Don't lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your head and share with me.
God wanted me; He set me free!!

He had this little toy that we called " MONO" and boy oh boy did he love it... It didnt matter where it was in the house all you had to do was ask him for his " MONO" and he would get up and start looking for it.. Once he would find it he would bring it back to you.. He wasnt  the type of dog that enjoyed playing fetch so at first he would bring it back to you, but after a while he would just lay with it as he is doing in his picture...

His "MONO" now lays in his bed, right where he left it.... I look at his empty bed everyday and still cant believe he is gone.....  

 

 The one thing my baby loved to do was sleep... It didnt matter where we were as long as we were together he would curl up and just fall sleep, so peaceful.. He is my angel now I know... 

 Beyond the Rainbow

As much as I loved the life we had and all the times we played,
I was so very tired and knew my time on earth would fade.
I saw a wonderous image then of a place that's trouble-free
Where all of us can meet again to spend eternity.

I saw the most beautiful Rainbow, and on the other side
Were meadows rich and beautiful--lush and green and wide!
And running through the meadows as far as the eye could see
Were animals of every sort as healthy as could be!
My own tired, failing body was fresh and healed and new
And I wanted to go run with them, but I had something left to do.

I needed to reach out to you, to tell you I'm alright
That this place is truly wondrful, then a bright Glow pierced the night.
'Twas the Glow of many Candles shining bright and strong and bold
And I knew then that it held your love in its brilliant shades of gold.

For although we may not be together in the way we used to be,
We are still connected by a cord no eye can see.
So whenever you need to find me, we're never far apart
If you look beyond the Rainbow and listen with your heart

 

I love this picture of him... We went to the beach not too long ago and he just loved the wind in his hair.. He is too cute... I picture him like this in heaven, with no more pain, only good days from now on...  I wish I could have him back but I know he is no longer suffering ...... It's just easier to hold on to him to ease my pain then to let him go..  I had great years with him and he will never be forgotten, he will be with me always.

 

I AM NOT THERE

Do not stand at my grave and weep;
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn's rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush
of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there, I did not die.

Tribute To A Best Friend

Sunlight streams through window pane
unto a spot on the floor....
then I remember,
it's where you used to lie,
but now you are no more.
Our feet walk down a hall of carpet,
and muted echoes sound....
then I remember,
It's where your paws would joyously abound.
A voice is heard along the road,  
and up beyond the hill,
then I remember it can't be yours....
your golden voice is still.
But I'll take that vacant spot of floor
and empty muted hall
and lay them with the absent voice
and unused dish along the wall.
I'll wrap these treasured memorials
in a blanket of my love
and keep them for my best friend
until we meet above
