In Remembrance of Bank

"God's finger touched him, and he slept. At the rainbow bridge, he waited for us. The day will come when we will all be reunited"

I still remember that beautiful Sunday
As usual you are drooling away
You show us your elegant weaving
Because you say you will be competiting

Dumbell is your favourite toy
the article bring you so much joy
By your master side you heel
confidence is what you feel

Time has past since that memorable day
when the God decided to bring you away
The emptiness still lingers from time to time
but when I think about you I know we'll be fine

You were more than just a friend
you were our best friend
Faithful companion
from beginning to end

With your friendly bark and wagging tail
you never showed if you ailed
Running and playing morning to night
never a mean growl or a bite

We wish you were still here right by our side
but you'll always be with us deep down inside
We gave you a smile and you gave us your heart
there is no way we will ever part

The love that you showed us we'll never forget
Obedience title, we will help you to get
We'll love you forever
You are our friend

When we look out; into the dark of night
You'll be that bright star; our guiding light
We'll meet again at the Bridge one day
when we'll walk in the light; together to stay

Pacco, sad to know that Bank has gone to the bridge. But will always remember Bank as the great happy salivating Golden. Almost like me actually. Great tribute to him by you Pacco!

What a beautiful tribute to your friend Bank. I'm sure he's whispering his agility secrets to you from above. I think it's wonderful to see how much you loved Bank and how imporant he was to you. I can only hope my friends love me as much as you love Bank.

Oh my gosh, I just saw this post today! What happened? The poem is just bootiful & I almost started crying. I really don't know what cost his life but whatever it is, I hope he's free from any pain right now. His owners must be in terrible pain right now. My deepest condolences to them...
