Unhappy I said good-bye

to Ayla today. My big girl passed away in her sleep last night. She was 13 years old (we guess) . She was a pound dog and we got her very young. She lived a good full life and was a sweet loving girl. As a younger dog she would chase a ball forever and she loved to bite at the water coming out of the hose. As an older gal she loved to lie in the sun in the mornings with a nice meaty bone to chew. She kept us feeling safe and loved us unconditionally every single day of her life. I'm sure going to miss her.
I took this picture just two months ago.

I'm so sorry to hear about Ayla. She looks like she was a beautiful dog. I'm glad to hear that she lived a good full life having given her a second chance at life. Was she a German Sheppard mix?

Christy, I am so sorry for your loss. I know that this is a difficult time. Cherish your memories of her.
Sounds like her life was great and she is now waiting at the bridge

Yes, she was. She was small for a Sheppard, but had a big big heart.

I'm so sorry to read about your loss. The picture of Ayla is so sweet. I'm sure you have many happy memories of your 13 years with her and I'm glad she did not have to go through a prolonged period of suffering.

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.
