Ode to Paddy (Paddington) 1997-2009

Paddington passed away last week and has left a hole in the hearts of Carol, Brian and Greg.
Paddy was my in-law's baby boy and lived out his last year happily, with a playmate and a foster family who loved him dearly, back in Ontario. He will be missed by us all.
the orange ball you squeaked
while all our hearts you tweaked

a trusty walking companion to Brian
your body and heart, the size of a lion

Carol will miss you beside her bed
oh! your red-golden hair you shed

your lolling tongue you slurped
while Squire, beside you, burped

Jake- sorry he had to move away
a friend to you, he wanted to stay

Poodie, will be mourned by Greg
a brother, on four legs

bit by a weasel, you yelped
many lonely souls you helped

a loyal friend were you
forever missed, so true

My parents just had to put their dog to sleep this week. It broke my heart to hear my Dad crying on the phone when he told me. :(
