I'm glad this poem has been appreciated. I lost my 19 year old cat in Sept. and an 18 year old Sheltie in November so know quite well the sentiments Mr. Stewart expressed in his poem.
But on a lighter note, I'm adding a new collie to my family soon. The boys and I are waiting for her to get out of heat so she can be spayed and then I can bring her home. In the meantime, I'm readying the house for a new GIRL. . . my first in 25 years. I feel like I'm preparing for the arrival of a new baby with all the girlie fabric I've purchased to make beds, blankets, and bandanas. I'm having a blast! If you want to see a photo of my gorgeous new collie-girl, look under "Available Collies" at "Miley" on the Southland Collie Rescue
Give all your fur-kids a hug for me!
