Poem -

THE WELL OF MY HEART

THE WELL OF MY HEART

Yesterday morning you laid to rest...

You kissed me Good bye and thanked me for the wonderful life you had...

You never complained when you got too spoiled...

You loved playing in the mud...

You loved watching the Butterflies as they would pass by...

You never knew you were a Dog...

You grew up with Cats and thought you were just a big one...

But, you always let them keep the mouse when they would find one...

You loved your Doggie Day Spas but, the Vet wasn't one of your favorite things but, you were always sweet regardless...

You knew it had to be done to keep you well...

You knew you'd get your favorite treat if you were a good girl...

As we would say...

Whatever works...

We made a great team you and I...

​​​​​​People loved you and when someone came by you were certain they were coming to see you...

Mom was just in the way...

You'd nudge me to sit down because, someone new was there to play...

My Sweet Little Girl you lived a long time, in human years you were 112...

People tell me I was a great Mom and they say another little one is out there waiting for my love...

You can never be replaced and I know you never like it when I'm sad...

I don't have you now to keep filling me with joy...

That's something I have to figure out on my own now...

The Well of my heart is full with the tears of loss and loving you...

Goodbye my Ali Girl...

May you run in Heaven's Field...

4-4-2019...

My worst day yet...

Hugs...

So beautiful, I was brought to tears, my animals are my kids. I would do anything in the world for them. I've rescued so many animals and I love them all the same. I am so sorry for your loss. I know that somewhere some one will need that love of another just waiting to be rescued and loved just as much. Many blessings to you and my heart goes out to you. I'll keep you in my prayers and maybe the next poem will be that you found a new baby to give all that love to. Best wishes my friend, and many blessings.

Hello Kay...

I saved her life when she was 3 Days old...

I couldn't wait until the day I could officially take her home...

I had permission to visit her anytime until she was big enough to leave her Doggie Mom...

I knew the day would come to lose her but, it still hurts bad anyway...

She always got a little attitude if she smelled another dog on me...

I tried to tell her she's the only one and other people have Dog Children that they love too...

It's not my fault if they came to me...

She stuck up her nose and turned away as if I cheated on her or something...

She was quite funny and full of personality...

There is a Puppy a little girl who was born March 23...

She needs a home, I knew about her before Ali died and she needs a home and I said I have lots of love to share...

God help me, that Well will never go dry...

I'm naming her Starla...

Your comment touched my heart more than you know...

Thank you rescuing those that need you and loving them as much as they love you...

Thank you for your sweet comment and support!

Hello Silent Dreamer...

We rescued each other...

If she were here she would tell you she rescued me first...

It's probably my fault I'd let her win a lot...

Of course, she thought she beat me fair and square...

Thank you for your sweet comment and love...

Hugs and love!

I am so sorry for your loss.  As I mentioned to you our beloved "Duke" died last summer.  Because Julia's parents were so much in Anguish we got "Max" the german shepard only a few days after.  Dogs never replace one another.  Nana came before Duke.  We love and miss her also.  She died 8 years ago.  Each one of our Dogs fill a chamber in our hearts.
Max is the gangsta dog.  We believe he rides with the Notorious "M-K9" gang.  We love that dawg  Nevertheless.  We just limit the amount of "Rap" music he is allowed to listen to.  He did a drive by in the bushes the other night. The victim was " Pig Pen The Possum".  "Pig Pen" never had a chance.
The PO-PO ( the Police) are not pursuing him.

Anyhow I wanted to give you a little humor, to lift your spirit.  Your loved very much on Cosmo and I am one of your biggest fans!

Hello Greg...

Give Max a Bone for me...

Tell him I said Good Boy...

The Possum probably needed a bath and he was trying to be helpful...

The Police probably put it into the Category of domestic...

You know how that gets filed...

I've had other Dogs before too and you're right they all have a place in the heart...

​​​​​I'm meeting a girl Puppy in another week or so...

I knew about her already, I thought Ali would still be here and  I came very close yesterday to not take her when she's ready...

​She'll be 3 weeks old on Sunday and someone told me Ali wouldn't want me to turn my back on a Pup that needs a home and should be able to get spoiled too...

My Neighbor is getting one too so we're going to see them together for the first time in a Week or so...

She already has her hands full and her Husband asked her are you sure about this?

Their baby is due in August...

This is their 3rd Son and their oldest is turning four the beginning of May...

They have a few animals already too...

She said yes...

All I could to do was smile and say I will talk to you later...

Away I went...

😂😂😂😂😂

Thank you for your kind comment and support!

Thank you for lifting my Spirits...

It's been a sad several days...

Hugs and love to you and Julia...

Best wishes and Blessings!

No not to implicate “Max” but it was definitely a “Hit”.  I think it was a well overdue gang “ initiation “ that Max was trying to fill plus the M-K9 gang is having a turf war with the “Westie Possum Gang” that Pig Pen was a member of. I am afraid of retaliation.  The Compton Bull Dogs are supposed to be having a sit down with M-K9 later this week in order to merge forces.  Max knew some of them while he was doing time in county ( animal shelter) Every time I pass a Bush now, my heart races a little.  
Hoped I cheered u up a little.

Sparrowsong,

I am hurting with you.  It is so hard to lose what you love.  My mother and I have always done animal rescue.  Every one is unique and has a place in my heart. At one time we had 17 dogs.  We actually saw someone drive up and put a dog over our fence.

When I was 17 I picked up a dog I named Sugar that had mange. The vet said she might not get over it and would not grow her hair back.  I had to move back home to pay vet bills but she got well and grew her hair back.  She always grinned and when she got old she would grin with no teeth on the front.  After she passed there was a Sugar 2 & 3.  I love animals and sometimes more than people!  I will pray for you. 

Terry Kay
