Memories of Barkley
~~~~ I knew the first time I saw you that you were mine.Our eyes locked in a look of pure love and I told the man that was holding you, that you were mine and we were going home together~~~

<3 I teased and called you "Charmin" because you were,squeezably soft.<3

I Loved You Best

So this is where we part my friend,and you'll run on around the bend,
Gone from sight,but not from mind,new pleasures there you'll surely find
I will go on,I'll find the strength.Life measures quality ,not length.
One long embrace before you leave.Share one last look,before I grieve.
There were others,that much is true,but they are they,and they aren't you,
and I,fair,impartial or so I thought,will remember well all you have taught.
Your place I'll hold,you will be missed.The fur I stroked,the nose I kissed.
And as you journey to your final rest,take with you this............I LOVED YOU BEST !

~ Pieces of My Heart~


So Sweet,
So Sweet,
With a Heart sweet as marzipan,
No one can have you but me.
So Sweet,So Sweet ~~~~~~~~~~~~ (Song from the NY lottery,Barkley loved me to sing to him)


I sang to him everyday ~~~

You are soooooooooo beautiful tooooooooo meeeeeeeeeee
You are soooooooooo beautiful tooooooooo meeeeeeeeeee ~~
Can't you seeeeeeee?
You are everything I hoped for~~~~
You are everything I need ~~~
You are soooo beautiful tooooo meeeeeeeee (because he was so beautiful,both inside and out)

~~~~~~~ Can you hear me still singing to you my Sweet Boy? ~~~~


I have you in a place where there is no space or time
I love you,for in my life,you were a friend of mine
......and when life is over
Remember when we were together.......
We were alone and I was singing a song for you.......... (A Song For You~The Carpenters)


For all the joy you've given me,
For the glory days gone by,
My best and final gift ,my love,
I give you wings to fly.

Blackbird (Barkley) singing in the dead of night,take your broken wings and learn to fly.
You were only waiting for this moment to arise.

Blackbird (Barkley) singing in the night,take your sunken eyes and learn to see.
You were only waiting for this moment to be free.

Blackbird (Barkley)fly,Barkley fly,into the light of the dark black night.

Blackbird (Barkley) singing in the dead of night,take these broken wings and learn to fly.............
(The Beatles,lyrics )


All that day long I spent the hours with Suffering
I awoke to find Her sitting by my bed.
She stalked my footsteps,while time slowed to timeless,
tourtured my sight,came close in what was said.
She asked no more than that beneath unwelcome,
I might be mindfull of her Grace.
I still can smile,amused,when I remember,
how I surprised Her when I kissed Her face.


There are those who would teach us,
That if the Spirit is to grow ,
Avoid being overwhelmed by the physical realm,
Learn to let go.


Had we never loved so kindly
Had we never loved so blindly
Never met,nor never parted,
I'd never be so broken hearted~~~

Barkley,The Companion of Lorraine

You have a special place,Lord,
that I know you'll always keep,
A special place reserved for dogs,when they quietly fall asleep.
With large and airy kennels and a yard for hiding bones
With maybe a little babbling creek,that chatters over stones.
With wide,green fields and flowers for those who never knew,
about running freely under your perfect sky of blue.
Lord,I know you keep this special place,and so to You I pray,
for one very special Corgi,who quietly died today.
He was so full of strength and love,and so very,very wise,
The puppy look he once had,had ,had long since left his eyes
He is dearly loved and missed my Lord,as a special friend of mine.
He went to join his ancestors,to your land that is devine.
So speak softly please and give him a warm hello...
He's a special gift to you dear Lord,from Lorraine who loved him so.

(You were more than my companion,you are my soul )


There is a bridge of memories from here to heaven above that keeps me very close to you,it's called the Bridge of Love
As time goes by without you and days turn into years,they hold a million memories and a thousand tears
To me you are so special,what more is there to say,except I wish with all my heart that you were
here today.
you are loved and missed more than words can say.

A letter from Barkley

Dear Mommy,
As much as I loved the life we had and all the times we played.
I saw a wondeous image of a place thats trouble free.
Where all of us can meet again ,to spend Eternity.
I saw the most beautiful Rainbow and on the other side,
were meadows rich and beautiful,lush and green and wide.
and running through the meadows as far as my eyes could see,
were animals of every sort as healthy as can be.
My own tired failing body was fresh and healed and new
and I wanted to run with them ,but I had something else to do.
I needed to reach out to you,to tell you I'm alright,that this palce is truly wonderful
then a bright glow pierced the night.It was the glow of many candles,shinning strong,bright and bold. and I knew then that they held your love in their brilliant flames of gold.
For although we may not be together the way we used to be,
we are all still connected by a cord noone can see.
So whenever you need to find me,we are never far apart,if you look beyond the Rainbow and listen to your heart........ Love, Barkley


God Made Dog

When God made the earth and sky,the flowers and the trees,
He then made all the animals, and all the birds and bees
and when His work was finished,not one was quite the same
He said,"I'll walk this earth of mine and give each one a name."
and so He traveled earth and sea and everywhere He went
a little creature followed Him,untill it's strength was spent
When all were named upon the earth and in the sky and sea
The little creature said "Dear Lord,There is not one left for me"
The Father smiled and softly said"I've left you to the end.I've turned My own name
back to front and call you DOG, my friend." ~~~ unknown


It came to me,that every time I loose a dog they take a piece of my heart with them and every new dog who comes into my life,gifts me with a piece of their heart.

If I live long enough all the components of my heart will be dog and I will become as generous and loving as they are <3

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~The Love of my Life,was His Heartbeat at my Feet~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
