Don't stop being happy

We all love happiness

even when we are sad.

Our best friend may

have left us today

but left us happy memories.

which can't be bad.

remember all the stories

The good times that we had.

The tear that tripped down our cheek

then turned into a smile as a memory

of him running fast in rain,

like a shadow in my mind.

Then a little light as I say Goodnight.

It is curious how we can become so attached to our pets, isn't it? Yet it is true. And sometimes pets are given to those who have little human companionship. For good reason! I've lost so many pets over a long period of time, yet I feel deeply attached to my memories of them. I try to take photographs of each of them... Often I use those photos as my desktop.

Dogs really are part of the family. It's like losing a family member maxeen We have only had one dog and it was very hard losing her.

What a sweet poem! I'm sorry for the loss of your dog, and I am glad that you can find comfort in the happy memories.
