Thankful andThoroughly Poetic Thursday

Today we are joining Brian for Thankful Thursday by also participating in Angel Sammy and Teddy's Thoroughly Poetic Thursday.

This weekend will mark the second anniversary of our loss of our sweet boy Angel Phantom.  We thought it might be nice to honor his memory with our first attempt at a poem for Angel Sammy and his new brother Teddy.  We are so very thankful to have been able to share our lives with this very special dog for more than 16 years - Phantom is deeply missed and loved forever.

November 20, 1998 - April 2, 2015

P is for PHANTOM

Phantom, our blue-eyed boy.
Meek and gentle and shy was he.
Yet he lived a life of fun and joy,
Always happy as can be.
He had a heart of gold
With just a hint of mischief,
With him the gods broke the mold
He was quite the special gift.
He could melt your heart
With a look from those eyes.
He never asked for much,
Just a tasty treat or a warm touch.
We miss him still;
He was truly a treasure.
Never very healthy, but with a very strong will.
Sharing his life was our pleasure.
Mr. Blue Eyes, we love you
Forever and ever - yes, we do.
