Back with me now.

It has been 1 month now or 4 weeks since I put my dog, Brit, to sleep. It has been really hard adjusting to not having her around. Not tripping over her, not feeding her, not taking her out at 6am, not having her sit next to me at the chair, or following me around everywhere I go in the house. Nope, my little shadow, my best and faithful friend sits in a box now on top of the hutch in the living room. Her ashes are with me now.

The message on her box reads:


" I explained to St. Peter
I'd rather stay here.
Outside the pearly gates,
I won't be a nuisance,
I won't make a sound.
I'll be very patient and wait.
I'll be near playing with a celestial toy.
Not matter how long you may be.
I'd miss you so much, if I went in alone.
It wouldn't be heaven for me."

I am sorry for your loss too, the words in the poem hit home. My Dede does all of that.
Hugs, Jeri

Losing a beloved pet is so incredibly challenging. Read my original poem at my site..The Journey: Over the Rainbow Bridge. Your sweet pooch is waiting on the other side of that rainbow but her heart is with you and yours with her. You're very brave and very loving to be able to keep her close, now!
