Once a dog 
has entwined himself  round your heart 
he is not only yours for life, 
but you are his. 
When he is gone,
his place is forever sacred. 
Other dogs are just as precious 
but they all have their allotted spot
in your affections kept for
them or their memory. 
A heaven without one's dogs would not
be the heaven we hoped for. 
A dog is always man's best friend.

Our Beloved Geoffrey


Geoffrey was born on St. Patrick’s Day & thus became dubbed as The Irish Schnauzer. Geoffrey was truly our little boy – we are positive he never realized he was a dog! He was extremely intelligent & possessed innumerable human characteristics. He was very loyal, extremely intuitive & very inquisitive. He always reasoned everything out in his mind.


Geoffrey loved holidays especially Christmas & Easter. He loved celebrating his birthday & Christmas by opening his presents all by himself. His Easter baskets were always filled with his beloved marshmallow bunnies. He was a genuine camera hog & loved posing for pictures. After he became ill, he no longer wanted his picture taken.

We were completely unaware of how completely Geoffrey had entwined his little paws around our hearts. What a big hole remains in both of our hearts! We are thankful to him for blessing us with 15 years of his love & devotion. Oh, how we miss him!

Rest in peace our sweet little Woofy Boy, you will live on in our hearts forever!

 

 

 

 
  

 

Good Bye

 

With heavy hearts, and a tear in our eyes
after all these years, we must say goodbye
Please understand, we've done all we could
If there was anything we could do, you know we would

I'm sitting right here, gently rub your ears
while I talk to you softly, trying to hold back the tears
The memories you gave us, we'll never forget
especially the ones, of the day we all met

One last hug, and one last kiss
you have no idea, how much you'll be missed
To look into your eyes, this one last time
you tell me it's ok, you know it's your time

Close your eyes now, and go to sleep
we'll pray to the Lord, your sole he'll keep
Go in peace now, our good friend
we'll stay right with you, until the end

Dream of that special day and time
when we'll meet at the Bridge, and all will be fine
We'll run and play, side by side
with a soft warm feeling deep down inside.

Your memory will live on, in each of us
you'll always be number 1, to all of us
have a safe journey through the night
I promise when you wake, you'll be in God's light

So with heavy hearts, and tears in our eyes
just for now my friend, we say goodbye
John Quealy

 

 

 

May I Go Now?

 

Do you think the time is right?
May I say goodbye to pain filled days
and endless lonely nights?

I've lived my life and done my best,
an example tried to be.
So can I take that step beyond
and set my spirit free?

I didn't want to go at first,
I fought with all my might.
But something seems to draw me now
to a warm and loving light.

I want to go. I really do.
It's difficult to stay.
But I will try as best I can
to live just one more day.

To give you time to care for me
and share your love and fears.
I know you're sad and afraid,
because I see your tears.

I'll not be far, I promise that,
and hope you'll always know
that my spirit will be close to you
wherever you may go.

 Thank you so for loving me.
You know I love you, too.
That's why it's hard to say goodbye
and end this life with you.

So hold me now just one more time
and let me hear you say,
because you care so much for me,
you'll let me go today.
