She was a tiny ball of fur that claimed my heart at first sight.
She claimed our bed and slept curled 'neath my chin at night.
A bond was forged on loyalty, devotion, and the love shining in her eyes so bright.
I would throw the ball, she'd dash to it, then sit and bark at me in jest.
Yes, she trained me well in her favorite game of fetch.
My reward was paid in puppy kisses, and they were the best.
Five pounds of mischief that usually got her way,
always by my side both night and day.
As she grew, the bond became ever stronger, and still holds fast today.
Impish little ball of fur, but she had the heart of a tiger.
She chased strays from the yard, tho' she was twenty pounds lighter.
There never lived a dog who's spirit and courage was mightier.
Sometimes at night I can still feel her curled up sleeping 'neath my chin.
Twelve wonderful years of love and companionship, that her death did not end.
God willing, the bond holds, so that when my life ends,
there in the After Life, will be waiting, my best friend.

What a charming poem. I can relate to this, as I too have a Yorkshire Terrier, called Ailsa. She's much as you describe Krissy, though she's more of a mummy's girl. Having lost three dogs before this one, (two Westies and a Cairn) I know the pain of losing such a lovely creature. I'm sure you and Krissy will meet again and carry on playing.

What a beautiful tribute to your wonderful pet.  She is waiting for you, no doubt.  Dogs always remain faithful.  But let her wait a while -- what?  Beautiful poem.   --David

What a poigniant, heart rending poem Linda, dogs are the most loyal of pets and have a way of getting intoyour heart and staying there long after they have left us. I have tears in my eyes as I write this comment because I too have lost a true best friend and I still remember her even though she has been gone more than 20 years! My other loyal friend will turn 4 years old on feb. 8th, she too has stolen my heart and the mere thought of losing her just breaks my heart thinking about it. Welcome back tothe fold Linda.    Hugs,   Henry

Dear Linda:  Krissy is smiling down from Heaven and so remembers the love and care you gave.  She will certainly be greeting you "in the sweet by and by" along with our wonderful pets who now Grace Heaven.   Lovely lovely write.
