what i miss the most
I wrote this poem..or whatever it might be... and posted it on a collabrative art website i am part of.
this is for my boy Oliver.
I miss your sad puppy dog eyes
I miss the freckles on your nose.
I miss the warm wet tong that would lick my hand silly
I miss the sound of your collar when you shook your head
i miss the sight of you sleeping on the coffee table in the middle of the afternoon.
I miss our long evening walks together
i miss the sight of niko dragging his owner down the street..barrelling at us full speed to say hello
I miss the sound of you scratching the sliding glass door to come in
i miss your breath fogging up that door
i miss your foot prints on the beach, or in the snow
i miss your excitement..of rolling in the snow..thoroughly enjoying every second of it
I miss your stubbornness when you didn't want to go for a walk, or be seen in your rain gear.
i miss the sound of your cry when you thought you were alone
i miss you begging for a treat every time we left grandma and grandpas house
i miss you squashed in next to me on the trips to vancouver
I miss your comforting presence when i was uncomfortable or nervous
I miss you sleeping at the end of my bed
I miss our trips up island together..because with you by my side..i was never alone
i miss our late night drives through town..when there was nothing else to do but listen to music and drive the empty streets.
I miss our walks on the piers..
I miss our matching hoodies
i miss you sniffing every inch of every strange place you were in
I miss people coming up to us and saying what a cute dog you were
I miss the smell of your hair when you got groomed
I miss your body wiggle when you itched
I miss the sound of your foot hitting the bowl at dinner time.
i miss you scarfing it down
i miss talking to you..even though you probably didn't understand me..or at least you pretended not to understand me
I miss you laying grumpily next to me when i take a bath
I miss your sighs..impatient..annoyed
I miss playing ball with you
I miss your endless bounds of energy and excitement when we caved and did play ball
i miss your impatient whines when we did not throw the ball fast enough
i miss the thump thump of your running
i miss nuzzling your nose with mine
I miss the feeling of your soft fur
I miss tackling you to trim your paws.
i miss the hair all over the bathroom, the couch and my clothes
I miss coming home to you every night
i miss the way you would paw my leg to get my attention
I miss the way you would snuggle up to me on the couch.
But mostly… I miss you.
You died of a broken heart. and now i am left with a broken heart
That was very touching, I am still wiping the tears. I am sorry for your loss. It is so hard to lose such a close friend. My deepest sympathies.
I'm so so sorry about Oliver. Tears are falling for you.

Words alone can not tell how much a dog effects our lives. There is so much "gone" when they leave.
"It came to me that every time I lose a dog, they take a piece of my heart with them. And every new dog who comes into my life gifts me with a piece
of their heart. If I live long enough, all the components of my heart will be dog, and I will become as generous and loving as they are." Erica Jong
Well that did it
You got me at number one, the leaking would not stop. I am so sorry for your loss.

Super Princess I loved your poem and I am sorry you lost Oliver. I don't think you ever recover from a broken heart but it does get easier.
Your words are very powerful..I was touched.
You've captured everything about our why our beautiful companions are so special to us. Oliver has left you with a broken heart, but his memory will be there always.
Aww.. Another teary eyed one here.. I totally relate to your poem.
Oliver gave you so many beautiful memories.
