Tesha Ann Smith by Shelley Smith / Mommy, Mike, Tommy, Michael, Heather and Toby

My best friend closed her eyes tonight,

As her head was in my hand.

The Doctors said she was in pain,

And it was hard for her to stand.

The thoughts that scurried through my head,

As I cradled her in my arms.

Were of her younger, puppy years,

And OH…her many charms.

Today, there was no gentle nudge,

With an intense “I love you gaze”,

Only a heart that’s filled with tears,

Remembering our joy filled days.

But an Angel just appeared to me,

And she said, “You should cry no more,

God also loves our canine friends,

He’s installed a “doggy-door”!

Tesha Ann wasn’t just a dog, she was a daughter, a sister and our friend. She is missed so very much.


We love you so much Tesha,
