God Bless Shadow

Sorry to hear the sad news.
I'll light a candle for you.
We now have another havanese angel watching over us.

Lend Me A Pup

I will lend to you for awhile
a puppy, God said,
For you to love him while he lives
and to mourn for him when he is gone.
Maybe for twelve or fourteen years,
or maybe for two or three
But will you, till I call him back
take care of him for me?

He'll bring his charms to gladden you
and (should his stay be brief)
you'll always have his memories
as solace for your grief.
I cannot promise that he will stay,
since all from earth return,
But there are lessons taught below
I want this pup to learn.

I've looked the whole world over
in search of teachers true
And from the folk that crowd life's land
I have chosen you.
Now will you give him all your love
Nor think the labour vain
Nor hate me when I come to take my pup back again.

I fancied that I heard them say
"Dear Lord Thy Will Be Done,"
For all the joys this pup will bring,
the risk of grief you'll run.
Will you shelter him with tenderness
Will you love him while you may
And for the happiness you'll know forever grateful
stay.

But should I call him back
much sooner than you've planned
Please brave the bitter grief that comes
and try to understand.
If, by your love, you've managed
my wishes to achieve,
In memory of him that you've loved,
cherish every moment with your faithful bundle,
and know he loved you too.

This is no doubt the saddest news I've seen since a part of this forum 'or family as I like to think'.
So sorry for your loss..

Rest in peace sweet little shadow. I am so very sad today, but knowing she is in a better place helps.

As I sit here with tears running down my face I can only say, God bless Shadow and you in this terribly sad time. You both made a valiant effort to sustain that little life and will surely meet again someday at the rainbow bridge.

My prayers are with you.

Dear Leslie,
this is so sad and both of you have been going through so much in the past weeks. Little Shadow is now with God and she'll surely sooth your pain from up above.
So SORRY to read this.
Maryam.

Oh Leslie, We have all been with you through thoughts and prayers these past few weeks and are all so sorry for your loss. My daughter and I checked on Shadow each evening of our trip. There is not much that can make things better right now other than knowing you did all you could to comfort and heal that precious little being. Thank you for sharing this time with us.
