I Remember
I stood by your bed last night, I came to have a peep.
I could see that you were crying. You found it hard to sleep.
I whined to you softly as you brushed away a tear,
"It's me, I haven't left you, I'm well, I'm fine, I'm here."
I was close to you at breakfast, I watched you pour the tea,
You were thinking of the many times your hands reached down to me.
I was with you at the shops today. Your arms were getting sore.
I longed to take your parcels, I wish I could do more.
I was with you at my grave today, You tend it with such care.
I want to re-assure you, that I'm not lying there.
I walked with you towards the house, as you fumbled for your key.
I gently put my paw on you, I smiled and said "It's me."
You looked so very tired, and sank into a chair.
I tried so hard to let you know, that I was standing there.
It's possible for me to be so near you everyday.
To say to you with certainty, "I never went away."
You sat there very quietly, then smiled, I think you knew...
in the stillness of that evening, I was very close to you.
The day is over... I smile and watch you yawning
and say "Good-night, God bless, I'll see you in the morning."
And when the time is right for you to cross the brief divide,
I'll rush across to greet you and we'll stand, side by side.
I have so many things to show you, there is so much for you to see.
Be patient, live your journey out... then come home to be with me.

Some day I'll wish upon a star And wake up where the clouds are far behind me Where troubles melt like lemondrops Away above the chimney tops That's where you'll find me ...

We lost our precious little Sarge on July 16, 2007. He technically never found his forever home, but in reality he did. After I decided to start my own rescue group back in 2004, I was contacted by a lady whose elderly parents owned Sarge, but were unable to deal with his diabetis and blindness. They wanted to turn him over to rescue, so of course, I said that I would take him. When they brought him to me, he was not in very good shape. After numerous trips to Dr. Zekkoff, we finally got him regulated on his insulin. Sarge fit right in with all of my other dogs. He became very close friends with Tiffie, who was another blind, diabetic dog that I had at the time. I remember when they would go outside, the 2 of them were usually stay pretty close to each other. Sarge's blindness never affected him up until the end. He could go up and down steps, and jump into bed at night. I had a few inquiries about him over the years and we did get several donations for his medical care. Sarge started going downhill a few months ago and I think that he was starting to lose his hearing also. He started staying in his crate most of the time, but he always met me with a tail wag when I came home. Even though I had a feeling that the end was near, I didn't want to think about it. He got very sick on Sunday night and he crossed to the Bridge on Tuesday when he was at the vet's office. I had gone to see him earlier that morning. I talked to him and petted him and I think that he knew that I was there. Sarge would have been 13 in October. I know that he had a good life but I miss him terribly. Go in peace sweet little one.
