Ode To Our Wendy 6/7/16

Our Wendy Dog
       Ode To Our Wendy 6/7/16

Goodbye my friend.
Four legged canine.
Always breathed with a funny snort.
You had a good run and a long life.
Mini Aussie loved the farm.
Sudden change.
Foreboding yesterday.
You came and stood in my lap while all the rest of dogs were away.
A moment with just us that caught my attention.
Interrupting me on the ground as worked on the baler.
Took a few minutes to love on you.
Then off on your way.
Didn't know that would be the memory.
A stroke and your eyes saying help me.
Struggle of doing what know right.
Call the vet and end your suffering.
Leaves a hole in heart to say good bye.
Grief will fade and memories remain.
Your goofy ways will always bring a smile.
Goodbye my four legged friend.
