In May 2001 Smudge was born I bred him myself and he was a Blue Merle Border Collie and he had the softest and gentliest nature of all my Border Collies, so loosing him so early at the age of 8yrs 7months was extremely hard on our family, he loved my granddaughter and she called him Mudgie because she couldn’t say his name properly.
I will never get over loosing him as for 2years we tried to find out what was wrong, in the end and when it was too late they finally told us he had an auto immune system dissorder and unfortunately they could do nothing he passed away on the 21/12/09 four days before Xmas.
I know this is more that 100 words but I would like to submit a poem which I wrote just for him and maybe this peom might help someone else in there time of loss.
HE WAS A JOY TO HAVE,
A JOY TO HOLD,
A JOY FOR US,
HE WAS SO BOLD.
HE MADE US LAUGH,
HE ADE US CRY,
HE BROKE OUR HEARTS – WHEN HE DIED,
21-05-01 – 21-12-09
TO KNOW HIM WAS TO LOVE HIM
REST IN PEACE
