My beloved beagle Daisy passed away on Thursday night. She
was going to be 17 this year. I loved her more than
anything. I miss her presence so much. She was my best
friend. There will never be another like her. I wish I
could pick her up one more time and hold her and tell her what a
good girl she is. I love you Daisy. I'll always
remember you. You'll always be my beagle

Dearest Sweet Daisy-bear bear: You are our beautiful, gentle
loving angel, descended from heaven, who has touched our lives in
ways that no human ever has or ever could. Your sweet loving
nature, gentleness,healing kindness, selflessness, beauty and
grace has blessed our lives for 11 years and 5 months. We can't
believe you are not here with us right now. Our sadness is deep
and profound. You were our little daughter and brought so much
overwhelming joy and happiness every single day into our lives
while you were on this earth. How can we ever thank you for always
being there for us all the time, no matter what. The way you would
come over to me and lay your head on my lap to calm me brought me
such tremendous peace and comfort that I can't define how your
healing powers touched my very soul. Our walks together were so
wonderful, as we watched you sniff and sniff the world around you
with your amazing senses. We loved watching you run so fast along
the beach of the LI Sound and CT River and bark at the waves, run
circles so fast in the yard you're eyes would disappear in your
head, swim and roll in the sand and dirt. how you threw up sticks,
did happy scratchies, and puppy angels in the snow. Your are all
love my sweetheart, pure as a child's love, unconditional,
constant, eternal. Now you are with Gingie, and loving life our
little blessing. Be with God. We will pray for you always and miss

The Last Battle
If it should be that I grow frail and weak,
And pain should keep me from my sleep,
then you must do what must be done
For this, the last battle, canít be won.
You will be sad, I understand,
Donít let the grief then stay your hand,
For this day more than all the rest
Your love and friendship stand the test.
Weíve had so many happy years,
What is to come can hold no fears.
Youíd not want me to suffer so;
When the time comes, please let me go.
Take me where my needs theyíll tend
And stay with me, if you can, to the end.
Hold me firm and speak to me
Until my eyes no longer see.
I know in time, you will see,
It is a kindness you do for me.
Although my tail its last was waved,
From pain and suffering Iíve been saved.
Donít grieve that it should be you,
Who must decide this thing to do,
Weíve been so close, we two, these years;
Donít let your heart hold any tears.
Smile, for we walked together for a little while.
20 years you shared our lives, it will never be the same...You
were everything a dog should be, sweet,funny, and amazing.
Loved and missed by us all. Go quickly Mom is waiting for
There is hole in our lives you once filled.
Go knowing we loved you and still do,
Till we meet again our girl,
Dawn, Shawn, Jessie, Mandy and Matt.
My handsome dog Dude was put to rest today. He
and I had been living loving laughing for nearly 10 years and we
became big parts of each of each others lives. Me
learning about him and he learning about me. The
amazing part to this dog is he loved everyone, and everyone loved
him. In the early years we spent time at the park all
kinds of toys and riding in the car which he loved. I hardly
ever went anywhere without my Dude. The hardest
part of our relationship came when he was diagnosed with Cushings
Disease. It took it's toll on him and we knew we had
met the curve in the road. My prayers are when I get
to the Rainbow Bridge he will stop everything he is doing with his
friends and ability to run again and greet me and we can take the
next step down the lighted path that awaits a loving God that
loves Dude and me.
loving and missing Dude
