Daddy

Post by Zoundz on Mon Nov 17, 2014 7:55 pm

I am so sad to announce to passing of Daddy - our hairless rescue boy. Daddy was not without problems from the time we got him, he had a marked head tilt and one eye 'missing'/blind. He got around fine though, and was a lovely lad, if a bit clingy because of his blindness. We became very attached to him in quite a short space of time... sadly in the trio of rescues, one boy was especially sickly - and poor Herr Lipp passed away a long while ago. Daddy now joins him Sad and we're still not sure why.

He had always been fit and healthy, and even just before we found him dead, he'd been up at the bars, eating well and perfectly fine and happy - so it was very sudden Sad

He will be much missed, not least by Harvey, who will miss him terribly I'm sure.

Run free lovely lad - we don't know how old you were, but I felt you had a fair bit of time left yet :*(

Here's a poem for him too - fits him somehow <3

The Chariot (Because I Could Not Stop For Death)

By: Emily Dickinson

Because I could not stop for Death,
He kindly stopped for me;
The carriage held but just ourselves
And Immortality.

We slowly drove, he knew no haste,
And I had put away
My labor, and my leisure too,
For his civility.

We passed the school where children played,
Their lessons scarcely done;
We passed the fields of gazing grain,
We passed the setting sun.

We paused before a house that seemed
A swelling of the ground;
The roof was scarcely visible.
The cornice but a mound.

Since then ’tis centuries but each
Feels shorter than the day
I first surmised the horses’ heads
Were toward eternity.
