Poem for Rosie and Sparky

For Rosie and Sparky:

Recently two of my friends made a difficult decision. Due to illness they had to put their dogs to sleep and are now happily playing over the rainbow bridge and without any pain.

In honor of Rosie and Sparky, I would like to share this poem. I have a mug with this saying on it:

He is your friend, your partner,
your defender, your dog.
You are his life, his love, his leader.
He will be yours, faithful and true
to the last beat of his heart.
You owe him to be worthy of such devotion."


I don’t mean to upset anyone but we will all face this at some time. May be take comfort in this poem and also we must be worthy of such devotion.
I have been filling in for the month of September on the blog. I am now relinquishing my role back to Patty. Thank you.

I too have that poem on a picture I made for my sister. That's a great picture of the Rainbow bridge. Yes, someday we all must cross it. Thanks for guest blogging, I've enjoyed your posts.

Annie, I love that picture and I love that poem. This was a good post. Thank you.
Yes, we must all come to this at some point. The love we share with our pets makes it all worth while. We are all better people for it.

I have enjoyed your posts.

Thank you so much Annie. Beautiful poem and first time I read it. I will keep in faves to continue coming back to it.

Sparky is surely missed and we are still aching for her. Time will bring us healing in knowing that Rosie and Sparky are happy playing with our other pets who have gone before them.

Love does not exist without an equal amount of heartache. You just can't have one without the other. But it is soooo worth it!

Annie-such a lovely poem & I love the picture. As much as we dont want to think about our pets going to the rainbow bridge, its something that will eventually happen :0( So sorry to hear about your friends' doggies. My thought & prayers go out to them.
