Sorry if this isn’t my normal cheery type of blog, but I had a sad moment when I heard a friend had passed OTR and thought about how it must feel if your dog was your world.
She sits beside the window looking out onto the street,
She wears a tired dressing gown and slippers on her feet.
The time goes by so slowly as she sits there looking out,
With nobody to talk to and no reason, now to shout.
Her houndy went to heaven, and his name was Tommy Tidge.
She cried so many tears when he went over Rainbow Bridge.
He tried to fight the illness with the strength that he had left,
But finally succumbed and she was left alone, bereft.
He’d been her life and purpose since her husband passed away,
His cuddles and his walks were what had got her through the day.
So now she sits there missing him, and wishing he was there.
She stares out through that window every morning, unaware,
That there are lots of houndies who would love to be her own,
So that poor grieving lady wouldn’t have to be alone.
If only she knew.
There are so many hounds and other dogs in rescue centres everywhere who need loving homes. There is no need to be lonely. Click the links below for more information of some of them in the UK.
