SHE WROTE THESE POEMS FOR PADDY

OUR LOCAL VET IS IN THE HOUSE BUT YOU DON'T WAG YOUR TAIL

YOUR BREATHING'S VERY SHALLOW AND YOU LOOK SO FRAIL

THERE'S NOTHING WE CAN DO FOR YOU EXCEPT TO HELP YOU GO

THIS IS THE FINAL KINDNESS I CAN DO FOR YOU I KNOW

 

YOU WERE ALWAYS BY MY SIDE YOU MADE ME FEEL SO PROUD

YOU WERE SO MAJESTIC YOU STOOD OUT IN A CROWD

BUT NOW YOUR EYESIGHT'S FADING YOUR DAYS OF FUN ARE GONE

WHEN I TAKE YOU OUT THE HOUSE YOU LAY DOWN ON THE LAWN

 

AS I LOOK INTO YOUR EYES I SEE THE PAIN WITHIN

I LEAN TO YOU AND KISS YOUR NOSE YOU LICK ME ON THE CHIN

YOU KNOW HOW MUCH I LOVE YOU I WHISPER IN YOUR EARS

MY HEART FEELS LIKE IT'S BREAKING I CANNOT STOP MY TEARS

 

IF YOU COULD ONLY UNDERSTAND THE THINGS I HAVE TO SAY

BUT NOW IT'S TIME TO SAY GOODBYE WE'LL MEET AGAIN SOMEDAY

I KNOW THIS IS THE LAST TIME WE'LL EVER HAVE TO PART

MY DARLING IRISH WOLFHOUND YOUR PAW PRINTS IN MY HEART

 

 

YOUR HEAD FITS SO SNUGLY UNDER MY CHIN YOUR PAW IN MY HAND LIKE A GLOVE

I CUDDLE YOU NEAR ME MY WONDERFUL FRIEND THEREíS NOTHING AS WARM AS YOUR LOVE

THE DAY YOU FELL ILL I JUST BLAMED MYSELF WAS THERE SOMETHING THAT I DIDNíT DO

BUT I KNOW NOW THAT NOTHING I DID WOULD BE ABLE TO HELP AND SAVE YOU  

 

 AS YOU GREW UP I KNEW THAT YOU'D BE  THE BEST FRIEND THAT I'D EVER FOUND

NOTHING CAN HELP MEND THE HOLE IN MY HEART WHEN I LOST YOU MY IRISH WOLFHOUND

THE COUCH LOOKS SO EMPTY THE GARDEN IS BARE I BEND DOWN AND PICK UP YOUR TOY

Paddy BRIBIBA Doodle Dooley(1992-1998)My lovely boy who died of cancer sadly missed loved by all he met.  Miss you big guy with all my heart, wait for me at the rainbow bridge, love Mum.

Just this side of Heaven is a place called the Rainbow Bridge.
When a hound dies that has been especially close to someone here, that dog goes to the Rainbow Bridge.

There are meadows and hills for all our special friends so they run and play together.
There is plenty of food and water and sunshine and our friends are warm and comfortable.
All the hounds that are old or ill are restored to health and vigor.
Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again,
just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.

The hounds are happy and content, except for one small thing -
they each miss someone special to them who had to be left behind.
They all run and play together but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance.
The bright eyes are intent, the eager body quivers.
Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass,
his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted and when you and your special friend finally meet,
you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again.
The happy kisses rain upon your face,
your hands again caress the beloved head
and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your hound,
so long gone from your life,
but never absent from your heart.
Then you cross the Rainbow Bridge together ....

never again to part.

Before I lost Paddy I took him out to all his favourite places and I promised him he would never be forgotten. I would play him  this song by Celine Dion and we cried together.......

"Immortality "

So this is who I am,
And this is all I know,
And I must choose to live,
For all that I can give,
The spark that makes the power grow

And I will stand for my dream if I can,
Symbol of my faith in who I am,
But you are my only,
And I must follow on the road that lies ahead,
And I won't let my heart control my head,
But you are my only
And we don't say goodbye,
And I know what I've got to be

Immortality
I make my journey through eternity
I keep the memory of you and me inside

Fulfil your destiny,
Is there within the child,
My storm will never end,
My fate is on the wind,
The king of hearts, the joker's wild,
But we don't say goodbye,
I'll make them all remember you

Cos I have found a dream that must come true,
Every ounce of me must see it though,
But you are my only
I'm sorry I don't have a role for love to play,
Hand over my heart I'll find my way,
I will make them give to me

Immortality
There is a vision and a fire in me
I keep the memory of you and me, inside
And we don't say goodbye
We don't say goodbye
With all my love for you
And what else we may do
We don't say, goodbye

 

 

IF THIS HAS BROUGHT TEARS TO YOUR EYES, THEN THINK OF ME AND MY LOSS

FOR THERE WAS NEVER ANYONE AS GENTLE AND KIND AS MY PADDY

I MISS HIM AND WILL LOVE HIM FOREVER. THAT IS THE POWER OF A WOLFHOUNDS LOVE. ......FRAN
