A DOG FOR EVERY MOMENT OF MY LIFE


For every moment of my life there has been a dog at my side.

Every laugh, every tear.

The moments I saw coming and the ones I could never see coming.

The relationships I thought would last forever that did not last at all.

The accomplishments and the failures.

The beginning - the middle and the end.

The cold snowy days.

The warm summer days.

The leaves falling.

The birth of a child.

The death of a parent.

The days I could not get out of bed.

The nights I could not sleep.

The times I tried to change and start over just to find myself in the same place again.

The times I fell in love.

The times I fell out of love.

The many different lives I have lived thus far in this one life.

All of it - every moment - everything lost - everything gained

               
There has been a dog by my side.

Better than any friend or relative.

A love that surpasses all love.

Eyes that sparkle and eventually fade leaving my soul vacant and nothing but a collar in my hand.

But knowing - that for every moment of my life 

There has been and there always will be... 

                                   A DOG




               R.I.P. Gainey - you will forever be by my side
