Harry's Mummy

For Leigh

Recommended Posts

There is nothing I can say or do that will ease your pain, for having to let Max go, you know that I am here for you hun.


I saw this today and thought of you.......


You're giving me a special gift,

So sorrowfully endowed,

And through these last few cherished days,

Your courage makes me proud.


But really, love is knowing

When your best friend is in pain,

And understanding earthly acts

Will only be in vain.


So looking deep into your eyes,

Beyond, into your soul,

I see in you the magic, that will

Once more make me whole.


The strength that you possess,

Is why I look to you today,

To do this thing that must be done,

For it's the only way.


That strength is why I've followed you,

And chose you as my friend,

And why I've loved you all these years...

My partner 'til the end.


Please, understand just what this gift,

You're giving, means to me,

It gives me back the strength I've lost,

And all my dignity.


You take a stand on my behalf,

For that is what friends do.

And know that what you do is right,

For I believe it too.


So one last time, I breathe your scent,

And through your hand I feel,

The courage that's within you,

To now grant me this appeal.


Cut the leash that holds me here,

Dear friend, and let me run,

Once more a strong and steady dog,

My pain and struggle done.


And don't despair my passing,

For I won't be far away,

Forever here, within your heart,

And memory I'll always stay.


I'll be there watching over you,

Your ever faithful friend,

And in your memories I'll run,

...a young dog once again.

We are all here for you hun, and share your pain.


I send you all the hugs you need xx

Farewell Dearest Mummy


You have been my teacher, my friend and most beloved companion. I

was like your child, totally dependent on you for all my needs. But I

never grew up and moved away as children do, I just grew to love and

need you more each day, each month, each year. I never went hungry

because you gave me dinner and gave me water each day.


When the weather was bad I found comfort in the warmth and safety of

your home. I delighted you by learning tricks, but what you may not

have realized is that I loved learning from you because I lived to please



The touch of your hand stroking my fur made my life worthwhile.

Though I barked at noises in the night, the postman's footsteps and

you became upset with me because, as a pup, I soiled the carpet, chewed on a piece of furniture, or barked too much. But do not feel bad about those times when you scolded me - I needed to learn right from wrong.


You loved me and blessed me with more happiness than most animals

will ever know. Instead of wondering what you could have done

differently, remember the funny things I did and the happy times we

shared together. Though it is hard for you to understand, I was ready to

pass on from this life. Our time together was short, but if we'd

had fifty years together, you still would have not been ready for me to

leave. Remember, I AM still with you. In EVERYTHING around you that reminds you of me , and the speacial years we shared! Memories keep us together Mummy!


So please, Mummy, share your life with others. Do not

refuse the opportunity to give another lucky pet the love you have given

me. No other animal will ever take my place in your heart, but there is

another one who needs you and will grow to love you as much as I did.

I am now at peace and no longer feel pain. You gave me a wonderful

home and a happy existence on this earth. So please be happy - go on

with your life and give your love to others.

Although I no longer share your world, I will always live in your

heart, and you in mine.


Farewell, Dear Mummy ... AND REMEMBER ... I Loved and still Love You !


In Memory of Max ... And with much Love from me Leigh Posted Image ... Posted Image
