I found this peom on a doberman rescue site and thought everyone that has a dobie or has lost one recently should read it!



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.

Made me cry--a friend of mine who has a dobe just found out today that he has cardiomyopathy. I kept thinking about her and her dog as I read this.

Great poem. Makes me think of my first Dobie. We had her for 15 1/2 years and she's been gone almost 3 and I still miss her. Damn smartest dog I ever knew.
