Teardrops On Birthdays

This was written for my beautiful Gunnarpup who so loved to be made a fuss over.Although today I cannot bring anything to him I can bring his essence to others. It's the biggest thing I can think to do for you pup. I didn't forget you Gunny. So this is your birthday fuss. I would move the world for you... Instead this time I'm touching it.



September 22 , 2014
A Tribute To My Beautiful Glengate Boy
on his 10th birthday.



Tight embrace of a scent uncertain
too long since I've felt you near
My hand at night outstretched to reach you
I wait to feel but there's just air

Can you feel me reaching for you
can you hear my silent song
There are no words, no rhyme, no reason
just the space where you belong

I see you sometimes sideways glancing
in everything I do or say
These memories of you they drive me crazy
yet I wish them not away

Bittersweet your lifelines fading
I'm calling you why wont you come
No more footsteps eyes now closing
forever sleeping I've come undone

There you stand now in my memory
can you see me I am still here
Majestic moments your life with me
you left too soon we'd much to share

Close my eyes and I do feel you
within myself I sprint for two
My running days remain now constant
the part that's missing it is you

Please don't feel that I forget you
your tiptoe steps or squinty eyes
These ways you showed how much you loved me
I knew that pup...it's no surprise

A whispered kiss is what I send you
amidst your sighs and toothy smile
I know you cannot walk beside me
and so I've carried you all this while

L.M.F.


I will always carry you in my heart sweet Gun
Happy Birthday to you my beautiful boy
my forever pup

GUNNAR
September 22, 2004- November 8, 2013


I LOVE YOU GUNNAR
goodboy

What a beautiful tribute. I believe they are still watching out for us, wherever we are, wherever they may be.

My thoughts will be with you.

Thank you everyone. I appreciate your kind words. He was a very wonderful friend and companion. Not a single day goes by that I have not thought of him. He was a part of my absolute everything. I couldn't let the day go by without still trying to do something special for him.

I am lucky to have been sent such a great dog by a great breeder.
It's hard to think of one without the other.
I am so fortunate to have been given the opportunity to have him.

Thanks again for your kind words.
It means so much.

Sleep softly Sweet Gunnar.
I love you puppy ... And Happy Birthday my prince.

Happy birthday gunnar

Happy Birthday Sweet Gunnar
I have a new puppy now
He doesn't raid our apple trees yet and he still hasn't discovered the asparagus.
He hikes your old trails and he plays with some of your favorite toys.
He has a great life, just like you did .
So often when we are doing things together I remember the things that you did too. You were a really good boy.

I've never forgotten you pup
You're still with me
I'll keep you near.

Happy Birthday sweet Gunnar
I love you pup.
XO

They stay in our hearts forever. How does that saying go.......

"It came to me that every time I lose a dog they take a piece of my heart with them, and every new dog who comes into my life gifts me with a piece of their heart. If I live long enough all the components of my heart will be dog, and I will become as generous and loving as they are. - Anonymous"

That's a beautiful quote Melbrod.
It means a lot to me today especially.
Spending time with my dog is the biggest part of who I am
Thank you for sharing it.

Beautiful tribute. Made me tear up and think of my boy passing this year. No amount of time with these companions is long enough

Hello John,

Thanks for your kind words. I still remember Gunnar. He was a great dog from a really great person. Yes I have a new boy now. Hes from Deb Romans in Alberta. I wish I could say I fell in love with him when I first got him .... but I fall in love with him everyday still . Hes an awesome dog with a great personality and I am having a lot of fun with him. Im proud to say he has his Ch.and his Gr Ch. which was a first for he and I as newbies in the ring. We are both learning from each other . We have been playing around with Rally for the last while and I especially like that because it helps me look at him in a very different way. Its a really nice experience but I think it has a lot to do also with the mentors I have who help me look at things sometimes in a different way . I am an avid runner and so my new dog Nickolai has pretty well been running by my side on a very regular basis. Thats the most beautiful thing about Dobermans to me... that sheer happy free running look. To me what looks majestic, strong and regal. Im sure hes happy hes my dog...and well hey, Im just happy that Im his owner
