Forever In My Heart Will Wag a Doggy Taill

The picture has been used by my wife on her facebook page. She says "Here is Harry enjoying his new life in doggy heaven."

Thanks to Jim Douglas, an old family friend, for the poem, which follows. I have taken the liberty of updating it slightly ...

The sheer delight of fish and chips
Till lately five pounds ten well spent
Are dust and ashes to the lips
Since Harry went.

A cronic frown besets my brow
And every day I'll look upon
An everlasting Tuesday now
With Harry gone.

No doleful dirge, no drooping flag,
But thus his epitaph unveil:
FOREVER IN MY HEART WILL WAG
A DOGGY TAIL.

P.S Thanks to CC, whose cat eats bananas and flies, and everybody else for your comments over the years. Harry loved doing this blog.

 P.P.S.

Harry - Rest in Peace

Harry passed away this morning.

The last couple of days were awful. He was so sick. So we asked the vet to come this morning and said a tearful goodbye.

Afterward, as I carried him out to the vet's car, it looked like he was just sleeping peacefully.

Looking up now, he is not there where I expect to see him.

Harry - Not Very Well

Harry went to the vet today and was X-Rayed and had an Ultra Sound Scan. Everything now makes sense: his difficulty breathing, being so slow on very short walks, the hollow coughing and sickness, the limping, and swollen tummy. He is not very well at all. It is not just his heart but also his liver and lungs. The change has become noticeable over the last week. Tumours have spread.  It is beyond treatment I'm afraid.

Harry kicking up fallen leaves

Harry went on a nice walk this morning. He met some new dogs including one that the owners thought was going to be naughty and jump. But he didn't jump so they went away very happy with their young dog. Harry also kicked up lots of fallen leaves, and smelled lots of interesting smells. He is now asleep and could be reliving the highlights in dreamland.

Harry and The Crow

The crow appeared a little too casual when I walked by. It seemed more interesting in finding food then escaping from me.

But when Harry saw the crow he gave chase - barking excitedly. The crows only option was to fly away.

Harry and The Smart Phone


 We haven't worked out how to do Harry's Blog from a Smart Phone yet. So as usual it comes from the laptop.

Harry and the rug of invisibility


Like Harry Potter's cloak of invisibility. there are places where it is hard to see where the living room rug begins and Harry ends. The power of the rug grows with age, and one day Harry may be hidden completely.
