Breed: Sharpei x
Owner: Valda of Bellambi, NSW.
I lost a special friend
the kind you can’t replace,
and looking at her empty bed
I still can see her face.
I see the endless energy
the sparkling puppy eyes,
not the tired, fragile friend
I had to bid goodbye.
I know she’s in a special place
our Lord has for such friends,
where meadows, fields & flowers
help make them strong and whole again.
I remember how she’d run to me
to play her favourite puppy game,
and how her ears would perk right up
When she heard me call her name.
But as those precious years went by
and we both aged and grew,
I’d find her often slowing down
but-we had still so much to do.
I’ve noticed in the recent times
her ears were not as sharp,
where is that running ball of fur
the years have shown their mark.
She started sleeping next to me
Was this her special clue,
because she felt the end was near I only wish I knew.
LUCY was a special dog
I know she gave her best,
but as I looked deep into her eyes
I knew it was time, for her to rest.
It will truly be a struggle
I don’t know how I’ll face each day,
I have to let her go–I know
But in my heart she’ll always stay.
Health and strength, wait for her there,
so with my very special friend
I’m sending all my prayers. I know she’s watching over me
She’ll be with me when I cry,
So with one more kiss on her beloved head
I told my LUCY LOO goodbye.
