Farewell Peepers



Marg of Marg's Pets has lost her lovely goat Peepers.  She had not been well for a couple of weeks and Marg knew it was time to let her go.  We got to meet Peepers when we visited Marg recently and she was a lovely goat.  She preferred the company of her two donkey friends, Joe and Smoke.  Farewell Peepers.  Please do stop by Marg's to offer condolences.  She has lost three animals recently..




We would like to dedicate this poem in her memory....

In the Loss of Your Pet

There must be a heaven
for the animal friends we love.
They are not human,
yet they bring out
our own humanity. . .
sometimes in ways
that other people cannot.
They do not worry
about fame or fortune. . .
instead, they bring our hearts
nearer to the joy of simple things.
Each day they teach us
little lessons in trust
and steadfast affection.
Whatever heaven may be,
there's surely a place in it
for friends as good as these.

What a perfect little poem. I thin I may save that if it's alright. Beautiful.

I remember when you got to visit. I wish I could do the same. Mom and I would love to meet her.

Gosh, thanks to all of you for that lovely tribute to Peepers. She did love to hang out with the donkeys right up until the end. Marg is going to do a tribute to Peepers really soon and tell her story. We love the poem and this whole post. It is terrific.
