I am posting this poem I wrote about my dog Lady (who has since gone to Heaven) since it is National Dog Day. I got her when she was six months old and had she lived a few more months she would have been 18 years old. ah, there is such beauty in lady's soft sweet eyes i swear God take me if it isn't so i see in them a bit of heaven a fleeting glimpse of you but God if there's no heaven (although i doubt that this could be) then let me go where lady goes when her days on earth are through it's true i've loved her more than most of the people i have known but she's been more true than my truest friend and a comfort through the years i never dreamed a dog could be all that she's meant to me so, i pray dear God take everything from me but leave me my sweet lady her fur is still so soft to the touch though she's getting on in years she's aged so well no one can tell she's lived a dozen years ah, lady's given me such pleasure i can't imagine us apart so dear Lord the day that you must take her will be the day that my heart breaks

Hello Faith, This is one of the most touching poems I have read about the mutual love between a dog and its owner. I read somewhere that one year of a dog's life is equivalent to seven years of human life. That computes to 120 years for Lady. You are fortunate for having her company for so long. I believe she will be waiting for you on the other side. Keep Well!
