I miss you so much
I miss the smell and feel of your soft hair as we have our early morning snuggle on the bed
I miss the sound of your tail thumping on the floor when I whisper your name
I miss your big shaggy head in my lap while I am on the phone or watching TV
I miss sharing my toast or the crust of the pizza with you, who could resist those big brown eyes
I miss watching you trot down the porch, head held high, you always took my breath away, the way you moved
I miss the way you were always there to greet me at the front door when I came home
I miss our walks around the property watching you roll in the long grass and flowers
I miss the way you read my mind, you always knew what I was thinking and how I was feeling
I miss the way you would stay beside the bed all day and night if I was sick
I miss how you would carry around your collar hoping to go for a walk or maybe there was a girlfriend visiting
I miss sharing pancakes on Sunday morning and Mc Donald's fries with you
I miss the funny way you would run down the hall spin in circles and jump on the bed when we were playing together
I miss watching you with little children, you were so careful and gentle with them
I miss your cheekie bark when you wanted my attention
I miss you coming with me in the van for a ride to the store
I miss listening to your soft breathing and snoring during the night beside the bed
I miss you and love you so much, You will forever be with me in my heart

There is a place called Clover Heaven; Where Life is renewed and pain removed;
Where bodies are healed and whole again; Where life is now filled with glee as it must be;
A place our babies must go; This place called Clover Heaven.
Where the meadows are full of Life with peace and frolic and no strife nor fear of danger.
The flowers in full bloom always changing colors ever so grand
and a home for many others.
The breeze so soft, free, and flowing; So pure and brisk and moves the grass ever so tall,
it is a velvet carpet after all; So soft and smooth, so very snug;
tis a good place to curl up and take a snooze and bask in the sun that is ever so warm.
This place called Clover Heaven. Where the water is so pure and clean;
it looks like a mirror that I can see and admire the renewed me.
The clover seems to reach the sky so full and free a good place to romp and play hide and go seek.
So you see---------
The sun so warm, The water so clean, The grass so smooth, The breeze so soft,
The flowers in bloom, A place to romp and play To bask or bathe,
To snooze and rest With food aplenty And water to drink With bodies whole
And free of pain With life renewed and filled with glee; A place they must go
To await their masters.
So dear Master
Dry those Tears and smile again, For I wait for you In this Place called Clover Heaven.

If it should be that I grow frail and weak and pain should keep me from my sleep,
Then will you do what must be done, for this -- the last battle -- can't be won.


You will be sad I understand, but don't let grief then stay your hand,
For on this day, more than the rest, your love and friendship must stand the test.


We have had so many happy years, you wouldn't want me to suffer so.
When the time comes, please, let me go.


Take me to where to my needs they'll tend, only, stay with me till the end
And hold me firm and speak to me until my eyes no longer see.


I know in time you will agree, it is a kindness you do to me.
Although my tail its last has waved, from pain and suffering I have been saved.


Don't grieve that it must be you who has to decide this thing to do;


We've been so close -- we two -- these years,
Don't let your heart hold any tears.

I was adrift on waves of feelings swirling circles about my mind
wondering if I had the strength to decide it was your time.
Did I have the right to make this choice that would change our lives forever,
did I have the will to sacrifice our precious time together?

Was I wrong in thinking of myself while you grew so frail and weak,
was I selfish in my desperate need to have you here with me to keep?
Into your bright green eyes I searched and found within your soul,
the echo of a far-seen wisdom the kind which only angels know.

You gently rocked my broken heart and with angelic calm
you lifted all the guilt I felt for wanting to hold on.
You showed me that the choice with which I felt so wrecked and torn
lay upon a path God paved the day that you were born.

Somehow you made me understand the choice was never mine,
it had been appointed long before, in another place and time.
So as I lay you down to sleep your eternal spirit shines
and our paths will cross again someday littlest angel of mine.

OUR WISH 


If we could have a lifetime wish, 
A dream that would come true.

 
We'd pray to God with all our heart, 
For yesterday and you. 


A thousand words can't bring you back, 
We know because We've tried. 


And Neither will a million tears, 
We know because We've cried. 


You left behind our broken hearts 
and happy memories too. 


But we never wanted memories 
We only wanted you.

Ruffles 

Ch Swisskiss Diamond In The Ruf  (1994 - 2006)  BG# 17359

Weep not for me though I am gone
Into that gentle night.
Grieve if you will, but not for long
Upon my soul's sweet flight.


I am at peace, my soul's at rest
There is no need for tears.
For with your love I was so blessed
For all those many years.


There is no pain, I suffer not,
The fear now all is gone.
Put now these things out of your thoughts,
In your memory I live on.


Remember not my fight for breath
Remember not the strife.
Please do not dwell upon my death,
But celebrate my life.

My Sweet Jewel

Your bowl sits empty on the kitchen counter, I reach to fill it up. . . . . then I remember we said goodbye today.

My heart is so heavy, I can barely think. It doesn't seem real, our time together has gone by way too fast.

I look around and you are everywhere, pictures of your beautiful face hang on every wall, my tears spill on these pages knowing I will never hold you again.

I see a little piece of you in your kids, grand kids and great-grandkids.

The house is too quiet, I can't hear your tail thumping on the kitchen floor or the peaceful sounds of you snoring during your afternoon nap.

There is still some black fuzz on the carpet where you lay last night, I can't bear to vaccuum it up.

A couple of cookies are left on the dresser in the bedroom, a reminder of how much loved your bedtime cookie.

We had nine wonderful years together, you gave me so much, you were my friend, my love, my protector and always a lady. I can't imagine life without you.

 

Rest now My sweet Jewel, until we meet again. Remember how much we love you.

We will miss you so very much.

Don't grieve too long for now I'm free, I'm following the path God set for me

I ran to Him when I heard His call, I wagged my tail 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, So fill it with your 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 to brief, Don't lengthen it now with undue grief

Lift up your heart and share with me, God wanted me now, He set me free.

We wish we could have told you, in words you'd understand,
We wanted you to stay with us. This wasn't what we'd planned.

We wish somehow to tell you, how empty we now feel.
A part of us went with you, a part that time can't heal.

We wish we could still touch you, and have you by our side
to hold you on our laps again and take you for a ride.

We wish we had you back again, to fill this empty space.
But one day we'll be together in a far, far better place.

When tomorrow starts without me,
 And I'm not there to see;
 The sun will rise and find your eyes
 All filled with tears for me.
 I wish so much you wouldn't cry
 The way you did today,
 Remembering how I'd lay my head
 In your lap that special way.
I know how much you love me,
 As much as I love you,
 And each time that you think of me,
 I know you'll miss me too.

So when tomorrow starts without me,
 Don't think we're far apart.
 For every time you think of me,
 I'm right there, in your heart.

Our Baker Boy

It has only been a few days now since we said good bye to you

I lay awake in the mornings waiting for you to bark to tell us it is time to get up

and then I remember why it is so quiet……..

Baker was from a huge litter of puppies and he stood out from the rest, he was so happy, outgoing and fun, he always made us laugh, he never really grew up and acted like a two year old his entire life.  He loved his stuffed toys and his beef bones, it seemed like he was always carrying something around.  

He has the most beautiful head and wonderful temperament and he passed this along to so many of his kids, his legacy lives on in them.    Baker loved everyone, he did not grow up around little kids yet he would let them lay on him and hug him tight, he did not have a mean bone in his body.

I remember the day that he won Best in Show, he had everyone in tears including the judge the ring steward all the handlers and our friends, we will never forgot this incredible day.

Thank you Baker for making our dreams come true, you will forever be in our hearts………….we love you and miss you so very much, our home and lives will never be the same.

Our time together has been way too short but we could see in the pain in your eyes today and we knew it was time to say goodbye. 

From the moment you were born we knew you were special, there will never be a sweeter move loving boy.   Thank you for all you gave us, you made us so proud; we will never forget the wonderful times we had together.    

We will miss your funny way of yodeling when you wanted your dinner; we will miss your great big head and paws in our lap and how you loved your stuffed  toy monkey.

 

You took our breath away the way you moved so effortlessly around the ring with the wind blowing through your beautiful coat and your big dark loving eyes could melt any heart. You had so many fans at the shows, especially the young kids; everyone knew your name and could not pass by with out giving you a hug.

May a little piece of you live on in your kids and grand kids and may they bring joy and love to the families that are lucky to share their lives with them.

 

You will be forever in our hearts and we will always have wonderful memories of you, no one can take that away from us. We love you and miss you so very much.

 

 Goodbye our sweet talking boy………..until we meet again…..

 

Whisper

 Ch Swisskiss Whisper Sweet Nothins (2002 - 2010)  BG# 19611

It was love at first sight; we came to see about a puppy and fell fast for five year old Whisper who wouldn't leave our laps.  It was her huge smile, her soft as eiderdown fur and her unrelenting pursuit of a pat that made us fall so hard.  Whisper was divine to stroke and brush, hold and snuggle.  She hated to be dirty, avoiding puddles and trouble.  She climbed into the bath once with a pleading look and of course we gave in. She loved a bath and adored a blow dry, purring like a kitten and entreating us with her paws to turn the dryer back on.  Whisper didn't walk, she pranced, never deigning to sniff at anything, eyes focused for a glimpse of a rabbit or squirrel to chase but never catch.  She rarely left our side, though she did escape from the back yard when she felt it was time for "Mr. Roast Beef" to quit drinking beer with the neighbours; she herded him home.  
 
Whisper, who had three litters and who lately loved best of all to snooze under her umbrella tree in the yard, had some serious adventures with us, flying in our little plane to remote places in pursuit of vistas and views, wildlife and fish.  We had to watch because if "The Blond" climbed into the plane, a boat or even a canoe, Whisper was never far behind.  She herded wild big horn sheep on the Banff parkway once as if she had been doing so all her life.  She proudly pulled the neighbour kids in a sleigh on the rare days of Victoria snow.  The best day of her life, we are guessing, was at Sydney Island where hundred's of feral deer let her give chase.  She arfed with unabashed glee that day and in her sleep many nights thereafter.
 
Whisper showed us that we could take care of someone other than ourselves; she taught us to be a family.  She knew before we did that we were expecting a baby and she sat, patiently with a paw on "The Blond" through every bout of morning sickness. She guarded our baby like she was her own puppy; the little old ladies in Oak Bay never had a chance to squeeze our baby's sweet cheeks when our Whisper was near.
 
And now our Whisper is not near.  We look for her everywhere.  The nights and mornings are especially hard, as she would send us to dreamland and wake us from it by leaping into bed with us for a pat and promptly hog all the covers and start snoring.  What we would give for her to hog all the covers and snore now.
 
Every day with Whisper was a gift.  Madeline and Geoff gave us 1095 gifts in allowing us to adopt Whisper when her breeding days were done.  We long for a hundred times that number, but all the beautiful memories of our Whisper-Whisp will have to hold us until she comes for us when its our time to go.  We are trying hard not to be broken hearted, but it is hopeless. Rest well dearest doggie, and may heaven be full of deer to chase and loving arms to pat you until we can come to pat you.
 
Bill ("Mr. Roast Beef"), Britta ("The Blond") and Beatrice ("The Baby")

Legacy

God saw you getting tired, a cure not meant to be.
So he put his arms around you and whispered very softly "Come to Me".


With tearful eyes we held you as we felt you slowly slip away.
Although we loved you deeply we could not make you stay.


Your loving heart stopped beating, the pain it came to rest.
God broke our hearts again today to prove he only takes the very best.

Sleep well sweet Legacy,...... until we meet again..............

You will be in our hearts “Forever and For Always.”

For Val 
 

I stood by your bed last night, I came to have a peep.
I could see that you were crying. You found it hard to sleep.

I whined to you softly as you brushed away a tear,
"It's me, I haven't left you, I'm well, I'm fine, I'm here."

I was close to you at breakfast, I watched you pour the tea,
You were thinking of the many times your hands reached down to me.

I was with you at the shops today. Your arms were getting sore.
I longed to take your parcels, I wish I could do more.

I was with you at my grave today, You tend it with such care.
I want to re-assure you, that I'm not lying there.

I walked with you towards the house, as you fumbled for your key.
I gently put my paw on you, I smiled and said "It's me."

You looked so very tired, and sank into a chair.
I tried so hard to let you know, that I was standing there.

It's possible for me to be so near you everyday.
To say to you with certainty, "I never went away."

You sat there very quietly, then smiled, I think you knew...
in the stillness of that evening, I was very close to you.

The day is over... I smile and watch you yawning
and say "Good-night, God bless, I'll see you in the morning."

And when the time is right for you to cross the brief divide,
I'll rush across to greet you and we'll stand, side by side.

I have so many things to show you, there is so much for you to see.
Be patient, live your journey out... then come home to be with me.

If tears could build a stairway and memories were a lane
We would walk right up to Heaven and bring you back again

Our hearts still ache in sadness and secret tears still flow
What it meant to lose you no one will ever know

But now we know you want us to mourn for you no more
To remember all the happy times life still has much in store

Since you’ll never be forgotten we pledge to you today
A hallowed place within our hearts is where you’ll always stay

Danica

   Swisskiss Trophy Girl  (2006 - 2014)  BG# 32699

It broke our hearts to lose you
but you didn't go alone.
For a part of me went with you
when God came and called you home.

In all our hearts your memory lingers
sweetly tender, fond and true.
There is not a day dear Danica
that we do not think of you.

Sadly missed along life's way
quietly remembered each and every day.
No longer in our life to share
but in our hearts you're always there.

Loving you is easy
we do it every day.
Missing you is a heartache
that never goes away.

If tear drops could build a stairway
and memory was a lane.
We'd find the road to reach you
and bring you home again.

 Thoughts of you are on our mind,
we feel your silent presence strong.
In our hearts we'll always find,
the love for you sweet like a song.

Memories of your days so dear,
treasured with a love sincere.
In our dreams you're living still,
we wake and feel a stream of tears.

You'll never be forgotten,
I pledge to you today.
Deep in our hearts you will stay,
loved and missed every day.

I thought of you today, but that is nothing new.

I thought about you yesterday, and days before that too.

I thought of you in silence, I often speak your name.

All I have are memories and your picture in a frame.

Your memory is a keepsake from which I’ll never part.

God has you in his arms, I have you in my heart.

The ones we love don't go away,

they walk beside us everyday,

unseen, unheard but always near,

still loved, still missed

and held so dear.  

Heartache is what we only feel

but know in time our hearts will heal. 

Memories of our time together

locked inside our hearts forever.

Time for me to go now, I won't say goodbye;
Look for me in rainbows, way up in the sky.
In the morning sunrise when all the world is new,
Just look for me and love me, as you know I loved you.

Time for me to leave you, I won't say goodbye;
Look for me in rainbows, high up in the sky.
In the evening sunset, when all the world is through,
Just look for me and love me, and I'll be close to you.

It won't be forever, the day will come and then
My loving arms will hold you, when we meet again.

Time for us to part now, we won't say goodbye;
Look for me in rainbows, shining in the sky.
Every waking moment, and all your whole life through
Just look for me and love me, as you know I loved you.

Just wish me to be near you,
And I'll be there with you.

There’s an empty space

where you once lay,

an ache in my heart

that won’t go away.

I couldn’t have asked

for a more loyal friend,

a loving, companion

right till the end.

Roaming the fields of gold

 no pain when you run.

The song of the wind,

beneath the warm sun

.

When we meet again  

when the time is right.

,Run into my arms,

walk with me into the light.

No farewell words were spoken,

no time to say good-bye.

Gone before we knew it,

with questions unanswered why.

 

Our hearts still ache in sadness,

and secret tears still flow.

What it meant to lose you,

no one can ever really know.

 

You visit in my dreams,

 I feel that you are near.

One day  we’ll be together,

in my heart I know it is clear.

Although the world keeps turning,

Life will never be the same

since you were called away.

 

You were such a special dog,

so gentle, loving and kind.

You left the sweetest memories,

and thoughts of you behind.

 

I only wish there was a way,

to see you one more time.

To thank you for the joy you brought,

into this life of mine.
