David Shortys Dad
In the darkness I turned to go; my last day's done, I'll miss you so. No time even to say goodbye or lick the tears spilling from your eyes. That's when I heard you call my name; I knew then I must ease your pain. Since I've no voice with which to speak, Its whispers in your dreams I'll make. Ease your heart and rest your mind, my time with you was the best of kind. I couldn't have asked for a better friend, we've shared our journey to the very end. There's one final thing you need to know, I'll whisper in your ear before I go... "I'm leaving first to find the way- I'll lead you there on your last day."
Val Weavers Mum
A poem Dave i thought you would like

Christmas in Rainbow Bridge
and what do they do
they come down to earth
and spend it with you
so save them a space
or an empty chair
you might not see tjem
but they will be there

Lets hope its true
val weavers mum

Pawprints Left By You
You no longer greet me,
As I walk through the door. 
You're not there to make me smile,
To make me laugh anymore.
Life seems quiet without you,
You were far more than a pet.
You were a family member, a friend
. . . a loving soul I'll never forget.
It will take time to heal -
For the silence to go away.
I still listen for you,
And miss you every day.
You were such a great companion,
Constant, loyal and true.
My heart will always wear, 
the pawprints left by you.

I thought of you today, 
but that is nothing new. 
I thought about you yesterday, 
and days before that too. 
I think of you in silence, 
I often speak your name.
Now all I have are memories,
and a picture in a frame. 
Your memory is a keep sake, 
from which I'll never part. 
God has you in his arms... 
I have you in my heart.

Your presence I miss,
Your memories I treasure.
Loving you always,
Forgetting you never.
Shortys Dad

And God asked the little orange dog are you ready to come home? Oh yes, quite so, replied the precious soul and, as a dog, you know I am most able to decide anything for myself. Are you coming then? asked God, soon, replied the little orange dog, but I must come slowly for my Mum and Dad are troubled, you see, they need me, to be there for them. But don't they understand, asked God that you'll never leave them? that your souls are intertwined for all eternity? that nothing is created or destroyed? it just is...forever and ever and ever. Eventually they will understand, replied the little orange dog, for I will whisper into their hearts that I am always with them. I just am...forever and ever and ever.

One Year On

I miss my little bestest friend. We spent many happy years together me and her, watching each other grow older, she was the always there, aware of my ups and downs, despite my changing moods she was always affectionate, loyal and true.
My life is so different now without her. It's strange even after a year to come home and not see her sleeping on the couch, or see that little excuse for a tail wagging like mad back and forth, so happy just to see me. I still sit expecting her to run over and nip my fingers wanting to play, or jump up on the couch and put her head on my knees, but she doesn't come, she is no longer there.

This place is not the same without her mooching around.
Still, every day I keep telling myself that I was lucky and privileged to have shared my life with her for so long, but I still have a good cry now and then, and I won't be ashamed of my tears, it's the least I can do to mourn such a loyal and devoted friend.

One year on since you left me and I miss you more than ever my little Shorty Mutt.

Shortys Dad

 From a little dog.

 I know that you miss me, at times you are sad.

 You think you should have done more as my Mum and my Dad.

 But I've something to tell you, so you won't feel so bad.

 You gave me the best life I could ever have had.

 Now that I'm in heaven, I don't feel the pain.

 It's always warm and sunny here, never any rain.

 I just have to thank you, that my memories are glad.

 For you gave me the best life I could ever have had.

 The times that were painful are just lessons learned.

 I've forgotten the sad times, with the freedom I've earned.

 Just know in your heart, with a faith iron-clad...

 That you gave me the best life I could ever have had.

Things I Miss about you Shorty

Your little tail wagging.

Your little woof!

The way you bounced when you ran.

Your smelly doggy breath.

Nipping my fingers when you wanted to play.

You rolling about like a screwball.

You lying beside me on your bit of the couch.

You nudging the cushions off the couch to make room for you.

You snuggling into my legs when you were cold.

The soft thud as you jumped off the couch

You looking for teddies and chews under your bed.

Taking you for walks.

Us both sneaking up to mum in the kitchen to see what was cooking.

Telling you it was time to go up to Mum at bedtime.

Letting you out last thing at night.

Nudging you up the stairs to your bed.

Covering you up with your blanket.

Hearing you snore away during the night.

Looking over and seeing you on your little bed.

Letting you out first thing in the morning.

You taking for ever to to do wees and poos.

Giving you your tablet and slice of cold meat in the morning.

You always looking away when I tried to take your pic.

You waiting on Mum coming in at the weekends from work with something nice for you to eat.

Telling mum how busy you have been while she was out.

Putting on your little jumpers for you.

Taking you for Mussels down the shore.

Your little nose sticking out the car window.

The way your little front paws left the ground when you woofed.

Telling you the hoover wont be on for long as you did not like it.

Scratching you ears.

Rubbing your old belly.

Buying treats and nice things for you.

The look on your wee face when you got a treat.

Your muddy paw marks all over the place.

The way you crouched in a huff when you saw the towel coming out.

The innocent “it wasn’t me look”

You giving Jack a good biting.

You eating five daisys.

Watching you beat up your teddies.

You snoozing in front of the fire.

You popping up at the end of Mums couch wanting out.

Eating your biscuits one at a time.

Scrounging subtly for whatever you could get.

Eating fishy tails and chicken balls.

Taking you on holidays.

Having you in the car with us.

Seeing your collar and lead hanging up on hook.

Knowing you were safe and warm.

Coming home and you being there.

I miss all of these things and more, but most of all I just miss you being there all the time, always happy to see us, with unconditional love and loyalty.
