R.I.P little buddy

Poetic Dan

To be cherished and loved for being nothing more than you, must be one of the main reasons we bring them to be part of our crew.

Today Jack set sail over rainbow Bridge but not before a walk on the dirt, sand and sea. Finished with a sausage to make sure he was full and happy to leave

Blessed to have been guided and looked after so well, he can now rest from the responsibility of keeping us safe from wheelie bins and to much chicken or anything else.

Thank you for teaching our youngest before you left, without you she would never of got as good as she is. Able to handle young children and see all humans mean no harm, all because of your knowledge that will forever live on.

To every dog that you helped move forward towards balance and harmony but most of all the lessons you truly taught me, that to live is enough and stop complaining about life, each moment is another step to put everything right.

You was my first real companion that made me see and feel the beauty in forgiveness, if I ever struggle again may I be lifted by your great spirit.

Looking forward to each day I see your sky visits, knowing it was the best choice to end your suffering and lastly I'm most grateful for you introducing the love of my life to me.

Thank you little buddy.
The best Jack there ever be!

      • Fay Slimm.

        A gift indeed was your lovely Jack and you write his goodbye time so poignantly Dan - -- having a dearly loved canine myself I can relate with each line of thankfulness for our pets who teach us so much while they share lour life for a while. The missing though hard will resurrect happy memories we made that can comfort us as we try to adjust. Warm hugs from me and this needed read will go straight into my list of favourites.

        • Poetic Dan

          I can't lie. Your comment made me cry and was not ready for how my adjustments would be needed.
          Thank you as ever and truly appreciate your time.

            'that to live is enough
            and stop complaining about life, each
            moment is another step
            to put everything right.'
