you were a champion of spunk
my companion..my joy
unconditional love
always at the door
a joyous tail wagging greeting
we traveled the country
from the east to the west
climbing boulders..walking beaches
exploring mountain trails
barely escaped the Javelina
because of your excited bark

six pounds of tireless energy
right up til the end
fearless against your peers
five times your size
each new crazy adventure
you were an explorer
sniffing out the trail
settling right in like a pioneer
 never a bother
you were my daily cheer

16 years we were a team
I have to admit
life is a little boring
since your departure
your antics..full of personality
we fit perfectly
right from the start
you owned my heart
you will always be a part
of my memories..of my soul

    1. Thank you John, Ellie was amazing. Tiny and fearless. We were perfect together. She has been gone for five months now. Simply died of old age, her little ticker gave away. She passed at home with me beside her and was active right up until the last day. I still cry daily for her. Appreciate you reading and commenting.

your comments are appreciated
