Barney, Matisse

My husband gave me a copy of your book
” Rescuing Sprite”

I wanted to tell you it took a lot of courage to write that. I had lost two of my best friends in one year, 5 years ago and although a good writer have not been able to bring myself to put pen to paper on my life with them. It took me 5 years to get over helping both my kitty, Barney who helped me survive a nasty divorce and my beloved Matisse, my german warmblood mare. One poem I I have in my office that helps me, it is written by an anoyomous auther is this;

In Loving Memory

God saw you were getting tired and a Cure was not to be So he put His arms around you And whispered ” Come to Me”
With tearful eyes I watched
As you began to fade away
Although I loved you dearly
I could make you stay
A golden heart stopped beating
Strong, soft paws came to rest
God broke our hearts to prove to us
He only takes the very best
I got this from the petloss grief site. I highly recomment it

We have a rescue horse now and also a beautiful 14 yr old rescue rotti
