Rest in Peace
My walking Partner!
Last night you left us grieving
for your eternal journey.
No morning walk will be the same
without you ever again.
Your pulling and sniffing,
your growling and chasing
will always be missed.
You were the best sniffer dog in the world.
We will miss your nose going up
every time we ate something,
demanding that you be given the same.
We will miss your naughty pranks.
You remember when we left you
alone with Yoda1 one day?
That you pulled down a papaya
From the table and ate half of it?
You loved papaya so much…..
We loved your naughtiness as much….
You peed on my pillow one day
when I had scolded you for something.
you were very young
Well! That was the way
you showed your resentment.
One day you ran away from the house.
and we went around looking for you.
You were lost in a busy lane
and sat on a corner trembling….
You were always up to something.
When we left you behind,
we tried to arrange things before leaving
so that you could not reach.
But you always managed
to pull things down.
You did not like to be left behind alone
or with Yoda1
So you showed your displeasure
by upsetting things in the house,
And when we came
you would sit in a corner
shivering as if a big mistake has been made.
You always came prancing
When we came home
All our worries forgotten that precious moment.
You made our lives full of cheers.
You were so soft in nudging us
asking for food or something.
Your actions were like that of an aristocrat.
You never kept your food on the floor
and always had it on a mat.
We called it your dining table.
We miss you, Usher.
You were part of our lives.
Be happy wherever you are.
May God bless your soul.
We believe in rebirth and May you be born
As a human being
and be as noble as you have been.
We miss you terribly……….
