If only you were there

                                                                  If only you were here

       I remember you were  dear to everyone. You were the first to welcome every body. You were very fond of children.  After returning from School, they first asked for you. They hugged you, kissed you and pampered you. You jumped into the warmth and comfort of their bed. But if an elderly one entered, you jumped and hid behind some door.You loved to play Hide and Seek.When you fell ill we panicked.We could feel your pain.You left us craving for you. Death does not spare anyone.We miss you, our dog Elsa. Wish you were here.

  6. Oh this was so heartfelt and made me gasp when I realized it was about a lost fur baby. I will be a mess if anything ever happens to one of my dogs. I will have many mournful posts following that. Sorry for your loss. HUGS

  17. I can understand how much you miss your dog. A dog is more than a family member, its place in our life can never be explained.A is the only animal they can make us understand what is known as "unconditional love". We might get mad sometimes with our dogs, but they don't turn their face against us, we have to only smile they would come running to us, as if nothing had happened.
    We have had two lovely dogs and both of them died, and now our third dog is our lovely Bumbilli, who is very naughty, yet very lovable.
