  •  I am so sorry for you (4+ / 0-)

    I lost my beloved Luna in 2011. She was a lab mix, with the same soulful eyes as your dogs.


    LUNA
    March 1998-January 2011
    By the edge of a woods at the foot of a hill,
    Is a lush, green meadow where time stands still,
    Where the friends of man and woman do run,
    When their time on earth is over and done.

    For here, between this world and the next,
    Is a place where each beloved creature finds rest,
    On this golden land, they wait and play,
    Til the Rainbow Bridge they cross over one day.

    No more do they suffer, in pain or in sadness,
    For here they are whole, their lives filled with gladness.
    Their limbs are restored, their health renewed,
    Their bodies have healed, with strength imbued.

    They romp through the grass, without even a care,
    Until one day they start, and sniff at the air.
    All ears prick forward, eyes dart front and back,
    Then all of a sudden one breaks from the pack.

    For just at that instant, their eyes have met;
    Together again, both person and pet.
    So they run to each other, these friends from long past,
    The time of their parting is over at last.

    The sadness they felt while they were apart,
    Has turned into joy once more in each heart.
    They embrace with a love that will last forever,
    And then, side-by-side, they cross over together.

    Inconceivable! You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.
