You were such a tiny little puppy when
we got you, only 6 weeks old.
Training you was so easy and fun
to do, what a heart you had little girl.
When you were full grown you were
not much bigger than when we got you.
Sleeping by my wife Judy was your
favorite pass time, even when she
went out of town, you would lie
as close to where she would normally
be. Chasing cats you really lived to
do that. You never even came close
to catching one, until one day,
this cat stoppped as i ran across the
street to get you, and almost being hit
by a car.
As i reached you and the cat, with
a swap of its paw catching you right
on your nose, drawing a little blood,
after that you were the one to stop
before even reaching the cat, you knew
better to come close. Your love for
everyone was a thing to see my little girl.
One day came that I didn't think
would come, we gave you to a friend
which broke my heart, but knowing
you were going to a good home.
My family was moving to Denver,
and they would not allow dogs
in the apartment, so we had no
choice, the day the lady came
for your I watched as the car
drove slowly down the alley
i saw the sad look on your face
that has never left me it is
buried in my heart and mind.
You were a great little dog
and I'm so sorry for giving you away.
