When Our Pets Pass

I got really sick
Or else I was old,
I need to go now
My owners were told.

It happened so quick
I just went to sleep,
I hurt no longer
My owners would weep.

I went to heaven
And barked at the door,
"Please let me come in"
"I can play once more.

I know my owners
Are really so sad,
I usually was good
Yet sometimes was bad.

I had a good home
For that I was blessed,
I'll seem them again
When they lay to rest.

    A cute idea here for a poem, Kelly. I like to think my miniature Eskimo Ollyver is in heaven. I could swear he came to me in a dream to visit me one night!!

    This almost made me cry! It reminds me of my doggie! This is a well done poem.

    Caregivers to furbabies everywhere will all certainly relate to this. Been there and done that too many times myself. Great Job Kelly. *TheKidsterWasHere*
