62 Precious, Perfect days
Tended carefully in mysterious ways;
Chosen with heart to heal my soul;
Angel pup – to make me whole.

Now he prances in unbridled glee
The Golden Dog for all to see.
His manner, his ways, we all did know
Now in this pup, will smilingly show.

We can question, did the dog really die
Tis just an illusion, an earthly lie.
Beneath that golden, shimmering face
Lies all the glory of MAXDOG’s Grace.

(Caryl Moll 22 August 2011)

There are many mysteries in life...
TOBY is one... but I don't question..

Hi dear friend, Loved this poem and it always amazes me how when we lose one beloved pup another one comes along with so many similarities. Hope you get to see our dear friend when she is home.
Sending tons of love,

Simetimes a miracle is painted in the skys.
Sometimes our eyes do not see the
paintbrush as it artistically
sketches the plan and places it before our eyes.
Sometimes it just appears and all we can do is marvel,,, and we do not need to question,, because it was all part of the plan.

Your words are beautiful.... and I can feel what you are saying.
It was all ment to be

The spirit lives on in ways we don't understand.

Very well said and beautifully written. The body may die, but the soul and spirit are forever near.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog and your comments. I really do believe in the spiritual communication with my dogs, as I have experienced and recorded it many times. It is one the things I love most about my dogs. And it sounds like you feel the same way.

I remembering hearing of the loss of Max. It sounds as if he had a wonderful life and I am so glad to have met you. Thank you again for visiting.
