Tina - At Home In Our Hearts

Tina - At Home In Our Hearts Tina came to us as one in a pair With a sweet disposition – beyond compare. A loving heart was hers to give, And give, she did as long as she lived. Britney, on the other hand Acted as one from an outlaw band Poodle Rescue was their former home From our care they would never again roam. They reached their teens casting their spell Till one dark day we heard the specter’s knell A dreaded tumor was Tina’s fate And her life became anything but great. Grief was sown in hearts that day – Hearts, that wanted her to stay. We came to know that Tina’s fate Would take her straight to Heaven’s gate. So, a needle brought, an angel, sleep And broken hearts were left to weep. Now, Britney moans so soft and low Wondering why Tina had to go. Written by: John Posey 10/25/13

    Yes, they are precious gifts from A creator that knew we would need the companionship that only a dog can give..... Tina was one of many little poodles through the years. All will be waiting at the Rainbow Bridge.... Jake
