To the Jiggliest Angel

The Jiggliest Angel

We leave tomorrow, bright and early, for Fredericksburg. It will be our first trip without our divapug, Winnie Wiggles. Every moment she will be in my thoughts, because she so loved going to this little spot of heaven on earth.

Heavenly Missive

Whippy creme and scrambled eggs are
Way up here in Heaven
In case you too
See only blue and
wonder what you're gettin

They're other things like angel wings
With fur that's never sheddin'.
There's no disease or achin knees
and wrinkles smooth and silken

I fall asleep and dream of you
and times when we were given
to sprint and run and tug on toys
and dash to mom for lovin.

Tonight no tears oh Howie dear
because I have been taken
I’ll kiss your cheek and whiskers sweet
And heal the ache within you.

The pain it fades and goes away
And even loss feels lighter
When time moves on then pushes back
All that separates us.

Ok, after reading that, I'm a blubbering mess over here. That is just so sweet. I miss my 2 puggies at the Bridge. I know how it is. HUGS
