IN MEMORY OF KALI 7/26/12 – 11/29/16

 

Old Yeller, Hooch, iconic dogs die

At least Sparky is resurrected by Michael

Would have given anything to be

A guardian angel for my Kali

That’s the human’s job, right?

Failed what should have been so easy

 

Why’d the Rat Terrier DNA kick in

When you were so laid back

Wanting to eat and play

Absorbing heat in your spotted skin

And loving it every day

 

Down the rabbit hole

Never to return

What called you away

What did you need to learn

 

Can hardly bear it

You left our pack forever

The dogs and I cry

You turned your back on the sun

Lost forever in shadows

 

Kali, my once Sacred Clown of comic relief

How do I manage overpowering grief

      1. Thanks again, David. I’ve had cats throughout my life and although different from dogs, they are very affectionate and I’ve grieved when each one passed.
