Beautiful poem by Kipling that I simply had to share. This seems like an appropriate place for it.

One of the most touching memorials for a beloved pet was posted on another board for a dog called Dexter. I hope his human won't mind me copying it here:


Hello. I've been expecting you for some time.
Here, come sit beside us for awhile ;
and let me tell you about this old friend of mine.
He might look tattered and a bit old
But I won't say goodbye until you've been told.
He had the brightest eyes I had ever seen,
And wore a beautiful fur coat that would out shine a queen .
He was never prissy but walked with an air ......
And oh so polite, you could take him most anywhere.
He could run like the wind and could catch most things he chased
But he protected and sat with me when I had problems to face.
You could not find a friend nearly so dear.
Because no matter the trouble he always stayed near...
He has never asked for much from me;
Just to love and respect him and I think you'll agree .
To give him a good meal plus a nice warm bed is not much to ask ;
When he has given me all his love and to him this was no task.
Now I understand you have a schedule to keep.
But I have a small favour before he nods off to sleep.
Please fold your wings around him and let him feel young while in no pain;
Dear Guardian Angel of Pets , please keep my gorgeous boy safe and happy until I see him again.
