Rudee Lindsay 24/01/1994 – 19/10/2006
We watched you playing with your brother, in Trim in ’94.
You rubbed Claire’s leg with your wee head – you needed to do no more.
Your little furry body fitted, completely in her hand –
and a love was born that those without could never understand.
We took you down to Sutton beach, most every chance we got;
splashing in the summer pools for pinkeens never caught.
Swimming bravely through the waves retrieving little sticks,
which ended hidden in the rough up on the golfing links.
The morning walks along the beach with Joan and other friends;
with treats for all the local dogs – why did it have to end.
Your constant vigil at the cooker, as dinner was prepared;
your focused eyes, your pleading whine – “I’m starving, don’t you care?”
The vets, the tabs, the aches and pains – the time and money spent;
it kept you well for us to love and was worth the final cent.
You gave us 12 fulfilling years and we have no regrets,
broken-hearted missing you – we never will forget……
Love you Rudeepoohs xxxx
