Savanna Whispers by Sandra Buchan & KellyAnne Megara / Mommy

My Sweetest Savanna,

Thank you for teaching me about unconditional love.
When I die, and my angel asks me
what I liked most about living here on earth,
I will whisper back, “my Savanna.”
I love you with all of my heart,
and I still feel you by my side, every day!
Someday soon, before you know it,
I’ll meet you at the Rainbow Bridge,
and we’ll walk to Heaven together.
You are forever etched in my heart,
my sweet angel.
Love and God Bless you,

To You, From Your Rescue Dogs

I would’ve died that day if not for you.
I would’ve given up on life
if not for your kind eyes.
I would’ve used my teeth in fear
if not for your gentle hands.
I would have left this life believing
that all humans don’t care…
Believing there is no such thing
as fur that isn’t matted,
skin that isn’t flea bitten,
good food and enough of it,
beds to sleep on,
someone to love me,
to show me I deserve love just
because I exist.
Your kind eyes, your loving smile,
your gentle hands
Your big heart saved me…
You saved me from the terror of the pound,
Soothing away the memories of my old life.
You have taught me what
it means to be loved.
I have seen you do the same
for other dogs like me.
I have heard you ask yourself
in times of despair.
Why you do it…
When there is no more money,
no more room, no more homes;
You open your heart a little bigger,
stretch the money a little tighter,
Make just a little more room…
to save one more like me.
I tell you with the gratitude and
love that shines in my eyes
In the best way I know how…
Reminding you why you go on trying.
I am the reason!
The dogs before me are the reason;
As are the ones who come after.
Our lives would’ve been wasted,
our love never given…
We would die if not for you.


I love you with ALL of my Heart,
Savanna Whispers
