Remembering Pocket Rocket

A year ago yesterday my world came crashing down around me. That was the day that Pocket Rocket died. 

She was never, ever ‘just’ a dog, she was my dog of a lifetime. Beautiful, kind and gentle, yet strong and powerful, she had an enormous personality, was immensely stylish and hugely talented. She had the ability to look through my eyes and straight into my soul with those amazingly soft golden eyes of hers.

Our friend Gayle has once again put pen to paper. 

So a year has gone and things move on,
As you walk through the gate a little time to contemplate,

A treasured friend she'd want your wounds to mend,

Special memories time can never erase,
as she shares your life's journey as it takes it's next phase,

Because she filled your heart you'll never be apart,

So be filled with happiness as you reminisce,
About Pocket Rocket who'll be forever missed.

Thank you Gayle for remembering our special Golden Girl.

Not long after Pocket Rocket died, I heard these words spoken, they’ve not left me:

"A short life can be a good life, a happy life and a full life."

Pocket Rocket’s life was all of those and my life was made so much the richer for sharing it with her.

Pocket Rocket
sorely missed - always remembered

I know what you're thinking ...
