Old Loves

Like all my loves- I never want her to go....... The special bond we share does not dim with age.... we remember their youth and their stories like our own. We wish we could turn back the years for them. Our heart breaks to see them falter. So we continue to keep our part of the bargain and prop them up, like they have done for us so many times. And when the time comes, the last thing we will do for them is to gently let them go, if only from our sight. We forever keep them warm and safe tucked away in our hearts. There will be tears, and eyes that search but fail to find.... an empty feeling that cannot be filled. That is what real love is.... and the fact that they are dogs, does not change any of it.

  1. I feel for you. I've lost several of my old friends, horses and dogs alike. It never gets easier, but we eventually can think of them without tears in our eyes and fondly remember all the good times.
