In Memorium


Amy
CH Moonshadows Topsy Turvee
1/29/2005 - 9/16/2013
Owner: Patty Anspach

Amy spent most of her life in Indiana, except for a short jaunt to aquire her AKC Championship, which she did with style. She only had one litter of puppies, but her sweetness and her silly character lives on thru them. No doubt something happened to frighten her, and she was anything but street wise having lived her life in a country setting. Amy went to live with a family in Kokomo, but bolted the first day. She was found several days later and had been hit by a car. The vets tell us she did not suffer, and for that we are thankful.

World spinning out of grasp,
out of reach, out of sight; you are gone.
My heart, my head, my hands empty
as your spot in my lap.
Sightless eyes searched for you.
Soundless voice whispered your name.
Deaf ears listened for your breath.
In a wild place the pain roared,
burned white, and then waned to an ember.
Shadows of the night closed in.

Now a half-luminous ray breaks through.
Memories quicken, dreams take color,
and I know that love never dies.
Liberated from your temporal shell:
you are not gone.
I see your eyes glittering like faith
in every refraction of sunlight.
I hear your bark echoing like promise
in the baying of the wind.
I sense your presence rippling like energy
in all the sweep of hopeful sky.
I feel your love constant and warming like dawn
in its old comfortable places in my soul.
And I know - as I always knew -
That I gained much more than I lost.

By Anne L. Taylor Swift

Rest easy little one.
