I could tell you the story of my life through the dogs I have loved
I could tell you the story of the losses in my life through their deaths.
Dogs come into our lives to teach us about love and loyalty.
They depart to teach us about loss.
We try to replace them, but never quite succeed.
A new dog never replaces an old dog; it merely expands the heart.
If you have loved many dogs, your heart is very big."

Erica Jong -from an essay entitled "A Woman's Best Friend"

Chobe and his best Bud Simba in the back yard

They went everywhere together


So This is where we part, my friend,
and you'll run on,around the bend.
Gone from sight, but not from mind,
new pleasures there you'll surely find.

I will go on; I'll find the strenth,
Life measures quality, not its length.
One long embrace before you leave,
Share one last look, before i grieve.

There are others, that much is true,
But they be they, and they aren't you.
And I, fair, impartial, or so i thought,
Will remember well all you've taught.

Your place I'll hold, you will be missed
The fur i stroked, the nose i kissed.
And as you journey to your final rest,
Take with you this... I loved you best.
