Back to Pet Grief


This is a poem written by Kenny Moore to commemorate the special memory of Cocoa. We were honored to become acquainted with Kenny and Helen through the Boxer Friends Message board that we both belonged to, and still do. They became one of our first customers and will always hold a very special place in our heart and memories.


Rest Easy My Beautiful Girl

Dear God,

Please remember these few things when taking care of my girl. She likes to walk back and forth in the pond, chasing the blue gills, watching close for you to reel in the "big one." She will then "hold" the stringer for you. Please take her fishing.

The lizards in the tree stumps won't be safe anymore, so you'd better hide the lizards. If  you
put dog bones in your robes, She will "wave" at you until you give her one. Give her two.

Her day bed is the one closest to the fireplace. If there is a boy lying in it she will come and rest
her head on your knee until you remove him. Her bedtime is 8 pm; please help her up the stairs.

Don't leave freshly baked pies on the counter, no matter how crippled she becomes;
she will always eat it. Blueberry is her favorite, with just a little cinnamon.

If there is a child in the water she will bring it out, especially if it is having a good time. If there is a small
child walking with a cracker, she will keep the child from overeating. Please give her a child to follow.

Don't leave any ladders leaning against your house, she will be found on the roof. I hope there is a playground nearby with lots of kids, she will wait her turn at the slide, and bark when he gets to the bottom.

Be careful when you spell out words like "C-A-R R-I-DE" and "E-A-T," even "B-U-N-N-Y."
She knows how to spell, you had better be ready to follow through.

When you take her on a trip, and stop to rest, just tell her to "be a Good Girl," she will squat down whether she has to go or not. She can't "go" with a leash on, it makes her cough. In fact don't even show her a leash, she will choke. She also can't go for a walk without her Dummy in her mouth, She can't make it past the gate, she likes the orange one the best.

The top of her head will become pointed if you don't kiss it often during the day. Then her hats won't fit.

She can't sleep unless she is on the right side of the bed.

When you give her a marrow bone, make sure her mom is there too, she likes to use her back as a table and get her all slimy.

If you tell her to "stay," make sure you come back to release her, she will stay there for days.

During the football games, if you get a chip, she gets a chip. She doesn't like the nuts with the shell on them, peel them please.

If you go to the lake then stop for ice cream on the way home, she always gets the first lick and then the bottom of the cone too, please.

Don't use a Buoy to tie off your boat, she will spend all afternoon trying to drag it to shore. If you take her camping, she has to sleep between you and Mrs. God, on the softest part of the foam pad.

Don't get mad at her when you come home and her head is in the dog food bin, she has to stretch her stomach muscles every now and then.

That's all for now God. Tell her we love her, miss  her and hope she likes the food up there.
