I will lend you for a while....

I found the below poem from Doberman Rescue of the Triad's website (rescue in NC). I thought it to be very eloquently written.

I will lend to you for a while, a Doberman pup, God said
For you to love him while he lives and mourn him when he's dead.
Maybe for twelve or fourteen years, or maybe two or three.
But will you, 'till I call him back, take care of him for me?
He'll bring his charms to gladden you, and should his stay be brief,
You'll always have his memories as solace for your grief.
I cannot promise he will stay, since all from earth return,
But there are lessons taught below I want this pup to learn.
I've looked the whole world over in search of teachers true,
And from the folk that crowds life's land, I have chosen you.
Now will you give him all your love, nor think the labor vain,
Nor hate me when I come to take my Dobie back again.
I fancied that I heard them say "Dear Lord Thy Will Be Done",
For all the joys this Dobe will bring, the risk of grief we'll run.
We'll shelter him with tenderness, we'll love him while we may,
And for the happiness we have known, forever grateful stay.
But should you call him back much sooner than we've planned
We'll brave the bitter grief that comes, and try to understand.
If, by our love, we've managed, your wishes to achieve,
The memory of him and his love, will help us while we grieve.
When our faithful bundle departs this world of strife
We'll have yet another Doberman and love him all his life.

Oooh - that made me all misty-eyed. I sent it off to my dad. He always says that he measures his life in the dogs he's loved. I thought he would appreciate that.

CoDobe, I am going to print this one off and put it in a frame on my wall with all my Dobie's pictures. You are right, very eloquently written.

Ok...crying at work.

I'm gonna send it to Chuck at CO Doberman Rescue.
And I think I'll do the same as DLS. What a great idea!
