    Default Jade 13 July 2005 - 10 April 2011


    Feb 2011 by Kath144, on Flickr


    I Havenít Left At All

    I saw you gently weeping as you looked through photographs
    You paused for just a moment at one that made you laugh.
    But as you turned more pages the tears began to flow
    You whispered that you missed me but I want you to know;
    I softly licked those stinging tears that down your cheeks did fall
    I want to help you understand I havenít left at all.

    On those days that you are overcome with sorrow, pain and grief
    I rest my head upon your leg to offer some relief.
    When you take our walking path Iíve seen you turn around
    Because I know you surely heard my paws upon the ground.

    At night while you are sleeping I snuggle at your side
    You stroke my fur as you touch that place where I used to lie.
    You said itís just your heart playing tricks upon your mind
    But rest assured Iím really there, my spiritís left behind.

    I know your heart is hurting; itís like an open sore
    You think my life has ended and you wonít see me anymore.
    But for those of us bound tight by love, death is not the curtain call;
    Itís really the eternal beginning that waits for us all
    So, dear Master as you live your life I patiently await
    For us to be together when you pass through Heavenís gate.

    My darling Jade..... You brought so much joy into my life and the lives of others. Your SM pain was so hard for me to see and now you are free. You loved being a Therapy Dog until your illness became too much. I'll never know why you had to leave so soon, but as I looked into your eyes for the last time, I could see that you had had enough. I could never have let you go, but God in His wisdom took that decision from me. I will love you forever and won't ever forget you. Watch over Thomas and I until we meet again.......

    I am so sorry to hear about your precious Jade, and to lose her so young is heartbreaking. Your tribute is really touching and gives a picture of what wonderful work she carried out and how she made a difference to many peoples lives as a therapy dog. Thinking of you at this saddest of times
    RIP Jade

    Better to light a candle for one lost dog than to curse the darkness of man's indifference. Saving just one dog won't change the world but it surely will change the world for that one dog.

    truly no words to express what a lovely poem that was to share. She was a charming, brave girl.
