Van Ricky...

One by One, they pass by my cage,
Too old, too worn, too broken, no way.
Way past here time, she can't run and play.
Then they shake their heads slowly and go on their way

A little old girl, arthritic and sore,
It seems I am not wanted anymore.
I once had a home, I once had a bed,
A place that was warm, and where I was fed.

Now my muzzle is grey, and my eyes slowly fail.
Who wants a dog so old and so frail?
My family decided I didn't belong,
I got in their way, my attitude was wrong.

Whatever excuse they made in their head,
Can't justify how they left me for dead.
Now I sit in this cage, where day after day,
The younger dogs get adopted and driven away.

When I had almost come to the end of my rope,
You saw my face, and I finally had hope.
You saw thru the grey, and the legs bent with age,
And felt I still had life beyond this cage.

You took me home, gave me food and a bed,
And shared your own pillow with my poor tired head.
We snuggle and play, and you talk to me low,
You love me so dearly, you want me to know.

I may have lived most of my life with another,
But you outshine them with a love so much stronger.
And I promise to return all the love I can give,
To you, my dear Adela, as long as I live.

I may be with you for a week, or for years,
We will share many smiles, you will no doubt shed tears.
And when the time comes that God deems I must leave,
I know you will cry and your heart, it will grieve.

And when I arrive at the Bridge, all brand new,
My thoughts and my heart will still be with you.
And I will brag to all who will hear,
Of you Adela who made my last days so dear

Beste wensen

Met deze terugblik op onze 2010 en met deze tekst van een lieve vrienden van me wil ik graag de nieuw jaar 2011 in te gaan…
“Steeds weer een weg. Toch weer leven. Toch weer mens zijn. Anders dan je had gedacht. Duizend dromen anders. Maar niet zinloos, niet doelloos…”

In memoriam voor Elfje

Voor mijn alle liefste hond...
Kapot van verdriet maar voel van prachtige herenigen aan mijn speciale Elfje.
Ik ben haar zo dankbaar voor alle haar liefde die ik van haar mocht opvangen in afgelopen 3 jaar. Zij was zo gelukkig, trouw en intens tevreden…
Elfje zal voor altijd blijven in onze hards…

If tears could build a stairway
and heartache make a lane,
I'd walk the path to heaven
and bring you back again…
