chihuahua memorial

~rip sweet chopper~

chopper was a 15 year old chihuahua-cross whose papa was pieter knoetze of johannesburg, south africa.  chopper was found wandering the city streets, cold and alone and was later rescued by pieter.  they were like two happy peas in a pod – companions in life – and had the most amazing bond for 8 years.  sadly, chopper has crossed over the rainbow bridge due to old age, but he will forever be remembered and loved by pieter and his family.  we love you chopper!

treasured friend

i lost a treasured friend today
the little dog who used to lay
his gentle head upon my knee
and share his silent thoughts with me…

he’ll come no longer to my call
retrieve no more his favorite ball
a voice far greater than my own
has called him to his golden throne.

although my eyes are filled with tears
i thank him for the happy years
he let him spend down here with me
and for his love and loyalty

when it is time for me to go
and join him there, this much i know…
i shall not fear the transient dark
for he will greet me with his bark.
