Mourning a death of a loved one!

Posted on: March 11, 2008

This post is dedicated to my beloved dog Woofy aka Guffy.

Sorry for the one day delay in posting my blog… Yesterday, on 10th March, I was not in a mood to write anything as it was the black day on which my precious pet – Woofey got died.  Woofey died on 10th March 2003… in my hands… he was 13 years old then. Five years passed but the pain has never subsided. My  inner pain caused me to be quiet and less than social. I was not looking for, nor did I expect sympathy. Its a very personal thing and no one can understand what I am going through.

Woofy aka Goofy Rao

God saw that he was getting tired
and a cure was not to be.
So He put his arms around him
and whispered, “Come with me Woofy.”

With tear-filled eyes I watched him
suffer and fade away.
Although I loved him deeply,
I could not make him stay.

A golden heart stopped beating,
run-loving paws put to rest.
God broke my heart to prove that
He only takes the best.

Woofy was an exceptionally smart dog who could anticipate my moves and seemed to understand everything. He could understand my hand signals and commands, I could say left or right shake and woofy would do it. He was an exceptional dog and my best friend in this world.
