Roameo (1997 – 2011).

April 22, 2011

Yesterday, with the heaviest of hearts, Jude and I had Roameo euthanized.

Tomorrow, I will post a proper memorial for him.  Today, I grieve.

    I am so very very sorry. I have been there too many times and grieve for you. I don’t post often but I do faithfully read.

    sorry for your loss… here is a poem i have saved for moments like these… i don’t know who wrote it.

    Old Dogs Do Not Die
    We have a secret, you and I,
    That no one else shall know,
    For who but I can see you lie
    Each night in the fireglow?
    And who but I can reach my hand
    Before we go to bed,
    And feel the living warmth of you
    And touch your silken head?
    And only I walk woodland paths,
    And see you ahead of me,
    Your small form racing with the wind,
    So young again, and free.
    And only I can see you swim
    In every brook I pass…
    And when I call, no one but I
    Can see the bending grass..

    Allen, Jude, my heart breaks for you, and I’m crying as I write this, but I know that you did the kindest possible thing for your dear friend Roameo.

    kris, that’s a lovely poem, thank you for sharing it. I like it better than The Rainbow Bridge.

    The grief, the poem, I cry for your loss and for all of the many flawless fur-friends who have gone on ahead, who no one else can see. Deepest sympathies from a devoted reader/reluctant commenter.

    no, i didn’t write it and i don’t know who did. if i have any author on poems i credit them. i am an ‘animal’ person and i have collected many nice poems. ilike the rainbow bridge but i like other less known poems more.
