Forever In My Heart Will Wag a Doggy Taill

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

Thanks to Jim Douglas, an old family friend, for the poem, which follows.

The sheer delight of fish and chips
Till lately four 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.

We are so very sorry to hear of Harry's passing. His blog has been a wonderful source of comfort and entertainment over the years, and has so wonderfully chronicled the adventures and curiosities of this delightful breed.

Rest in Peace Harry - may you find many sticks and balls in heaven xx

My heart goes out to both of you.


Even more so since you got an insensitive spam comment, that assures you it isn't spam, but of course it is.

The photo montage is lovely...had me crying again!

I'm so sorry for your loss. Harry's blog is one I kept on my work computer to see what he was up to all the time. I will miss him. I lost my Max at 13 last year; I still cry for him! Try and center on the wonderful memories you have of Harry.

So sorry to hear about this.

We recently lost a cat, so I know the feeling.

Many condolences.
