In Memory Of
Obie, Its hurts to say good bye
THEY ALL PASSED ME BYE, BUT NOT YOU, YOU STOPPED TO SAY HI.
The moment we met a bond was developed that would never be severed by death or time. I never realized how hard it would be to say goodbye after you said hi. You accepted me for what I am , and you were always there to listen. Thank You, Ole friend for the joy, loyalty, companionship and love you gave me that are beyond any words I can write or say. I often look at the couch where you used to sit, but only see an empty space and feel that emptiness inside. When I take the other dogs for a walk I expect to see you lagging behind, but only sadness and emptiness remain.
People see you as just a dog, but to me you were a life giving force that gave joy to me and ebveryone you met. Mankind often forgets he too is an animal,that wreaks havoc, destruction and needless pain on this earth. A dog is much wiser, he/she is a loyal firmly devoted friend that one rarley finds in a friend.
Obe, it would have been wrong and painful to let you go naturally, but I wish I could have prolonged your stay. That decision to put you to sleep, and relieve your pain was the last act of kindness I could give you, but it hurt me so and still does. I feel that part of me died with you.
That decision still haunts me, because I want to be with you, but realize I must let you go physically, but I will never let you go spiritually. The ultimate act of unselfishness is to let those we love go on when their time has come, but its hard. You are burned in my heart ole friend. There will come a time when I will be passed my prime, and I know you will be waiting for me as I get to my end so we can be together again. This time I will come to find you.
Your spirit is free from your worn body of pain. Only memories remain that time will try to dull. I know you are in heaven. You are never really gone, you are in our hearts forever. Rest in peace OBE till we meet again.
I LOVE YOU. I ALWAYS HAVE, AND WILL NEVER FORGET MY DALMATION PUPPY.
