RIPLEY 12-21-12
I had to say goodbye today to a very special friend
One with a heart so big and great
I thought it would never end
She was such a beauty, all shiny, strong and lean
We met when she was a 6 week pup
Though she grew quickly to a teen
As she aged she became quite strong
She’d stand guard and defend me
She was quite a canine talker
She’d growl and bark and boast
A mixed breed she may have been
But to me she was the most
The brightest, sharpest, a very good girl
Doing as she was told
But talking back just as she wanted
Even with that heart of gold
I was not prepared to let her go now
Some things just happen too fast
Before you know it they’re gone
Only God knows how long we’ll last
Now she’s running with the other dogs
Playing fine and fast and strong
She’s said goodbye to me for now
But I miss her already and always will
My very special friend
In honor of Ripley, Lab/Weimaraner mix, 8 ½ yrs old
Rest in peace our darling daughter; you will be missed more than you know
Thank you to the compassionate staff at Palo Verde Animal Hospital and our dear friend Chris.
They handled our previous dog’s loss back in 2004 before we got Ripley.
