The Life of a Good Dog Named Fayeroe

Happy Valentine's Day From Fayedy

Happy Valentine's Day From Fayedy

I saw you standing there,
So young and yet so brave.
Your stubby tail wagging like mad,
The smile on your face was a mile wide.
I paid the money that the man wanted,
Loaded you into the truck and took you home.
You went into my overall's pocket,
Wiggling and giggling all the way.

You grew big and strong.
I never felt afraid or alone with you.
You guarded even though you were
wounded. You guarded your mom
when things were the worst.
You are the best.

We had 7 wonderful years together.
Then one night a year ago you got your wings and
left your earthly home.
So soon, too soon.

I know your heart, Fayeroe and I know
you want me to go on and be strong,
just as you were.

I'm trying, I'm trying.

I still cry
by: Denise Caliya's Mama

I had to listen to the song you sent me by Bob Dylan and when i heard those words sung, i spent the rest of the day crying for Caliya and missing her terribly. It still feels at times that it's been a nightmare that i cannot wake from. Caliya was a part of my soul and i feel lost without her and that's even when i am in a room filled with other close family members. I am lost without my Caliya. I get're heartbroken just like me.

In Memory of Fayeroe
by: Janice Giampaoli

The poem brought me to tears. I totally understand how Pat feels. Fayeroe was her precious fur baby, and still is, but in spirit form. Love to Pat, Fayeroe (and Tippy). xxxxoooo
