I AM YOUR DOG

Posted on November 28,2012 by Baggybulldogs


I am your dog, and i have a little something I'd like to whisper in your ear. I know
That you humans lead busy lives. Some have to work, some have chidren to raise. It
always seems like you are running here and there, often much to fast, often never
noticing the truly grand things in life. Look down at me now, while you sit there at
your computer. See the way my dark brown eyes look at yours? They are slightly
cloudy now. That comes with age. The gray hairs are beginning to ring my soft
muzzle.

You smile at me; I see love in your eyes. What do you see in mine? Do you see a spirit?
A soul inside, who loves you as no other could in the world? A spirit would
forgive all trespasses of prior wrong doing for just a simple moment of your time...
That is all I ask. To slow down, if even for a moment to be with me.

So many times you have been saddened by the words you read on that screen, Of
another of my kind, passing. Sometimes we die young and oh so quickly, sometimes
suddenly it wrenches your Heart out of your throat. Sometimes, we age so slowly
before your eyes that you may not even seem to know until the very end;..when we look
at you with grizzeled muzzles and clouded eyes. Still the love is always there,
even when we must take that long sleep, to run free in a distant land.

I may not be here tomorrow; I may not be here next week. Someday you will shed the
water from your eyes that humans have when deep grief fills their soul, and you will
be angry at yourself that you did not have just "One more day" with me. Because I love
you so, your sorrow touches my spirt and grieves me.

So come, sit down here next to me on the floor, and look deep into my eyes. what do
you see? If you look hard and deep enough we will talk, you and I, heart to heart.
Come to me not as "alpha" or as "Trainer" or even " Mom or Dad", come to me as a
living soul and stroke my fur and let us look deep into one another's eyes, and talk. I
may tell you something about the fun of chasing a tennis ball, or I may tell you
something profound about myself or even life in general.

You decided to have me in your life because you wanted a soul to share such things
with. Someone very different from you, and here I am a dog, but Iam alive. I feel
emotion, I feel physical senses, and i can revel in the differences of our spirits and
soul. I do not think of you as a "Dog on two feet"- I know what you are. You are
human, in all your quirkiness, and I love you still.

Now, come sit with me, on the floor. Enter my world, and let time slow down if only
for a moment. Look deep into my eyes, and whisper to my ears. Speak with your
heart, with your joy and I will know your true self.

Author unknown

Mr.G forgive me.... So many levels of thought in life and after..So much may slip by
with hidden words we glance over, after the lose of my friend i find myself writing it's like
forming words with your heart because i can no longer share them with... This gives me
a greater understanding of how much friendship we have and a form of respect for the
ones that speak with there eyes.

It's a reflection of are selfs and who we are...And how much we form a connection
as we understand without speech Jake touched your heart and you share his words
you have become the best of friends as he is always searching for you.

Forgive me Mr.G i found this poem it has great truth with heart warming moments, this poem is a look
into a friends mind and to be given a voice, are heart speaks with are friends.. it's difficult to bring
words from the heart.

Wishing you Well

You need no forgiveness, My Doxie and Me, only thanks for sharing that beautiful piece with me. Indeed, I saw much of Jake and our relationship in it. He and I were kindred spirits with a bond that can never be broken, as were you and Jenna. I hope that they are keeping each other company until we meet with them again at the bridge. My best to you, friend.

It was exactly 6 months ago today that we lost our sweet boy, Jake. I don't cry as much now, but still feel a great sense of loss each and every single day. A guy told me once that Jake had a face only a mother could love. I replied that I must be his mother then, for I loved his face and everything about him. Miss you, big boy!Attached File  Jake__1.jpg ( 65.14K ) Number of downloads: 1

JakesGrandpa,

Thinking of you and Jake on your 6 month angelversary. He is so cute. Of course you love that face and everything about him. You'll always feel an emptiness even though the tears will be less.

We love you Jake, and we'll always be here for your loving grandpa. wub.gif

Good morning Jake's Grandpa!

How are you doing this morning? Just want you to know that Gretta (in the Perfect World, with Jake), Rufus (my black lab-Newfie with the beautiful eyes) and all the people and animals in the Musketeer group are thinking of you and sending you a special set of love rays,

The Musketeers got their start many years ago when my sister was desperately ill. Originally we WERE three: me, my sister and my brother-in-law. Since LS, we've enlarged our circle - if I mentioned names, I'm sure I'd miss someone, but here's and invitation (actually two): one for you into the earthly contingent, and one for Jake into the heavenly contingent. No dues, just support and love.

Bye for now. have the best day possible.

I'm OK now, LoveMy Micky, after a couple of depressing days of missing my boy Jake quite a bit. Thanks for asking, and I hope that all is well with you.

Does anybody know how Bobbie is doing?

Jake's grandpa

Some days are just plain "missing my friend" days. Lots of wishing takes place on those days. Lots of "if only" and "one more time", often in the same sentence. They're especially hard during rocky times in your earthly life. My eyes are leaking now as i write this. I think we cry as we have loved. Great love, many tears. Then there are many sentences that start with "Someday" and they're all true.

Thank you for caring so much about Jake and about our Musketeer family. One for all and all for one.

For tonight ....

Gretta's mom

It was 8 months ago today that we lost you, Jake, and my life will never be the same. You are gone but not forgotten, and I will always hold you close in my heart and mind. Your Grandpa loves you, sweet boy.

My Doxie and Me, thank you so very, very much for your kind words. They are indeed a comfort to me. Jake used to play with the dachshund next door; I hope that he and Jenna have become good friends.

The pink car is my little granddaughter's.

You are a good person, my friend.
