Best boy ever....
In loving memory of our Milo who we love so much. Milo will be greatly missed and be in our hearts forever!
Milo is in the arms of an angel now, my mother. He had suffered enough for the past nine months. He developed Congestive Heart Failure in November 2008. I truly loved him more than words can say. He was my constant companion in good times and bad. I put him to sleep 8/25/09. I closed his eyes and kissed him goodbye. It was the hardest thing I ever had to do in my life. It truly broke my heart. He will always be a good boy, even at the Rainbow Bridge. Such a good boy, always loving & licking my face and waiting to greet me. I will miss him so much. Goodbye Mr. Beans, Gordo, Cubby and Doctor George. I will miss you forever and cannot wait until I hold you in my arms again and kiss your loving face. Run amongst the fields near the bridge and play with Sam, Molly & the other animals and angels. You are at peace now. My heart breaks but your memory will linger within my heart forever. Goodnite young man!
I love you!
Milo's 10th Birthday 2/22/09
"When your handsome and you know it, clap your hands." "When your handsome and you know it and your face will surely show it, when your handsome and you know it clap your hands." And you are handsome. (whistle, whistle)
When God had made the earth and sky the flowers and the trees, He then made all the animals the fish, the birds and bees. And when at last He'd finished not one was quite the same. He said, "I'll walk this world of mine and give each one a name." And so He traveled far and wide and everywhere He went, a little creature followed Him until it's strength was spent. When all were named upon the earth and in the sky and sea, the little creature said, "Dear Lord, there's not one left for me." Kindly the Father said to him, "I've left you to the end. I've turned my own name back to front and called you dog, My friend."
Lord, make me an instrument of Thy Peace. Where there is hatred, let me sow love. Where there is injury, pardon. Where there is doubt, faith. Where there is despair, hope. Where there is darkness, light. Where there is sadness, joy. O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek
to be consoled as to console; To be understood, as to understand;
To be loved, as to love. For it is in giving that we receive. It is in pardoning, that we are pardoned. And it is in dying that we are born to Eternal Life.
Saint Francis of Assisi
-- The Patron Saint of Animals
They will not go quietly,
the pets who've shared our lives.
In subtle ways they let us know
their spirit still survives.
Old habits still can make us
think we hear them at the door
Or step back when we drop
a tasty morsel on the floor.
Our feet still go around the place
the food dish used to be,
And,sometimes,coming home at night,
we miss them terribly.
And although time may bring new friends
and a new food dish to fill,
That one place in our hearts
belongs to them...
and always will.
They haven't really been taken away.
They have only gone with the Angels to play.
They have been given wings with which to fly.
All their troubles have passed them by.
Their life in heaven now must start.
But we'll hold their memory in our hearts.
Nothing about them will be forgotten.
But now they sleep on billowy clouds of cotton.
Christmas Eve 2008-Last Christmas together!
They say memories are golden
well maybe that is true
I never wanted memories,
I only wanted you.
A million times I needed you,
a million times I cried.
If love alone could have saved you
you never would have died.
In life I loved you dearly,
In death I love you still.
In my heart you hold a place
no one could ever fill.
If tears could build a stairway
and heartache make a lane,
I'd walk the path to heaven
and bring you back again.
"Unconditional love never dies"
Ever has it been that love knows not its own depth until the hour of separation. -Kahilil Gibran-
As much as I loved the life we had and all the times we played,
I was so very tired and knew my time on earth would fade.
I saw a wondrous image then of a place that's trouble-free
Where all of us can meet again to spend eternity.
I saw the most beautiful Rainbow, and on the other side
Were meadows rich and beautiful -- lush and green and wide!
And running through the meadows as far as the eye could see
Were animals of every sort as healthy as could be!
My own tired, failing body was fresh and healed and new
And I wanted to go run with them, but I had something left to do.
I needed to reach out to you, to tell you I'm alright
That this place is truly wonderful, then a bright Glow pierced the night.
'Twas the Glow of many Candles shining bright and strong and bold
And I knew then that it held your love in its brilliant shades of gold.
For although we may not be together in the way we used to be,
We are still connected by a cord no eye can see.
So whenever you need to find me, we're never far apart
If you look beyond the Rainbow and listen with your heart.
A single rose can be my garden... a single friend, my world. ~Leo Buscaglia
Rest now my friend
You are in good hands now...........
I lost a special friend today,the kind you can't replaceand looking at his spot I can still see his face.I see the endless energy the sparkling brown eyes,Not the tired,fragile friend I had to bid goodbye.I know he's in a special placeour Lord has for such friends,where meadows, fields & flowershelp make them strong and whole again.I remember how he'd run to meto play his favorite game,and how his ears would perk right upwhen he heard me call his name.But as those precious years went byand we both aged and grew,I'd find him often slowing downBut- we had still so much to do.He did his guard dog duty welleach time the doorbell rang,Strangers surely couldn't see my gentle friend-behind those fangs.I've noticed in recent times,his ears were not as sharp,Where is that running golden fur?the years have shown their mark.He started sleeping next to me,was this his special clue?Because he felt the time was nearI wish I only knew.My Milo was truly a special dog,I know he gave his best,But as I looked deep into his eyes,I knew it was time for him to rest.It will truly be a struggle,I don't know how I'll face each day.I have to let him go I know-But in my heart he'll always stay.This special place the Lord has madehealth & strength wait for him there,So with my very special friend I'm sending all my prayers.I know he'll be watching over me,he'll be there for me when I cry,So with one more kiss on his beloved head,I told my Milo goodbye.The days pass so quickly. the weeks it also seems,for tonight I will pray again, to see him in my dreamsTo tell him I still miss each & every day,that he will always be my boy, that he's only gone away. Away to a golden place to enjoy his brand new start,and that his sweet memories will remain so deep within my heart..

One reason a dog can be such a comfort when you're feeling blue is that he doesn't try to find out why. ~Author Unknown
Nostrovia, my Milo.
....Always love you, Milo....
