Geordie by Donna

Dedicated To Geordie”

A loving devoted pet who will always remain in my heart always and forever. Only eight years young. I will never forget that day there was so much heartache I felt so terrible. But as long as you are in my heart you will never be forgotten I will always love you. I miss you so much. You lived a good life. You brought so much pure joy and happiness to everyone who loved you. I hope God is treating you kindly. You truly were my best friend. You were suffering I had to make you happy again You lost that loving gleam in your eyes and I knew you were in pain I couldnt be selfish… I had to let you go for your sake so you could once again be well. I had you since I was eight years old I dedicate this poem all to you. And I will always remember the day I took this photo of you when you wore my baseball hat. I love you always Geordie. I miss you.


Treat me kindly my beloved friend for no heart in all the world is more grateful for kindness than the loving heart of me. Do not break my spirit with a stick for though I should lick your hand between blows your patience and understanding will more quickly teach me the thing you would have me learn.

Speak to me often for your voice is the world’s sweetest music as you know by the fierce wagging of my tail when your footsteps fall upon waiting ear.

Please take me inside when it is cold and wet for I am a domesticated animal no longer accustomed to bitter elements. I ask no greater glory than the privilege of sitting at your feet beside the hearth.

Keep my pan filled with water for I cannot tell you when I suffer thirst.

Feed me clean food that I may stay well romp and play and do your bidding to walk by your side and stand ready willing and able to protect you with my life should your life be in danger.

And my friend when I am very old and no longer enjoy good health hearing and sight do not make heroic efforts to keep me going. I shall leave this earth knowing with the last breath that I draw that my fate was always safest in your hands…. I will always be your best friend.
