Christmas Without My Dog

Found this on the Friends of Golden Retrievers facebook page. It was so touching to me I thought I would share as this is my first Christmas without my dear Rhett...

Christmas Without My Dog

The tree is all trimmed.
The gifts are all wrapped.
The hymns are all sung,
And the travel plans mapped.

And still there's a sadness
That lies in my heart,
For a dog that was lost
And a love now apart.

A stocking is missing,
With toys and a treat.
A lap is now empty,
A space at your feet.

Yet remember this season
God's small gift to you,
Wonderful memories
To treasure life through.

Thanks for sharing that lovely poem and the photo. It's our first Christmas without Daisy too last Christmas was just the worst with her being in the veterinary hospital. We have the new pup to look forward to in the new year, but it's still very sad without Daisy here.

Thinking of you!

I agree wholeheartedly. A big field of grass and streams would be nice in the pic, and meadows and hills just like the Rainbow Bridge poem reads... http://www.goldenretrieverforum.com/...-bridge-x.html (Rainbow Bridge x)

This is my first year without Brandy.. We won't have any dog during this Christmas with us and it'll be very sad. She use to love to unwrap all the gifts. Her birthday fell on Christmas Eve so even tonight is hard. Thank you for sharing this poem, it's very nice and makes me know that Brandy is watching from above now with her sweet heart.
