For Snickers New Angel at the bridge




We are so sorry we have not been able to give our words for Miss Snickers. (Uh, this puter may have to go back to the geeks....sheesh) Anyway, I was sent the following when my Tess had to go to the bridge for lymphoma. I do not know who wrote it.


From Friend To Friend


You're giving me a special gift,
so sorrowfully endowed.
And through these last few cherished days,
your courage made me proud.
But, really love is knowing
when your best friend is in pain.
And understanding earthly acts
will only be in vain.


So looking deep into your eyes,
beyond, into your soul,


I see in you the magic that will once more make me whole.
The strength that you possess,
is why I look to you today.
To do the thing that must be done.
For it's the only way.
That strength is why I've followed you,
and chose you as my friend.
And why I've loved you all these years.....
My partner 'til the end.
Please, understand just what this gift,
you're giving means to me.
It gives me back the strength I've lost,
and all my dignity.
You take a stand on my behalf,
for that is what friends do.
And know that what you do is right,
for I believe it too.

So one last time, I breathe your scent,
and through your hand I feel
the courage that's within you,
to grant me this appeal.
Cut the leash that holds me here,dear friend,
and let me run.
Once more a strong and steady dog,
my pain and struggle done.


Don't despair about my passing,
for I won't be far away.
Forever here, within your heart
and memory I'll stay.
I'll be there watching over you,
your ever faithful friend.
And in your memories I'll run..........
a young, healthy dog once again.
Many Hugs
Jamie , Sunny, Scooter and Shaymus

Thank you so much for the wonderful tribute to our Angel Snickers. Of course we are buried in tears again. Mama hasn't stopped crying yet, will probably take a few months. We're sorry Tess had the nasty lymphoma too. Such a terrible disease. We hope you are feeling better soon so you can have some turkey.
Luv & Wirey Hugs,
Butchy, Angel Snickers, Ruby, Sylvester & Scuby

Well. We're crying again. It doesn't take much when we think about Sweet Snickers. And your beautiful tribute brought the tears right back. That's not a bad thing. It just goes to show how special she was, special she is, and special her friends like you are.

Thank you.
Love
Jake and Fergi xxoo
