I lost my 8 year old Yorkie Pom on Jan 10th 3 days ago. I was never a pet lover until she came into my life. She was mine and my wife’s companion, our comforter, and my best friend for the last 8 years. She could say a thousand words with her eyes. I am totally devastated and I don’t care about much since she left.
She passed at the Vets office right after she was given a mild sedative to keep her calm during routine dental surgery. We did everything we could before that day to mak sure she was totally healthy including an extensive blood work up and an overall health assessment. She passed them all with flying colors. We dropped her off at the vets office at 8am and not 5 minutes after returning home at 8:35 we got the call she had passed. Writing this now I can almost here her little feet coming down the hall, but it’s not to be. I have sons that are grown but I feel like I have lost one of them the pain is so deep. I wrote this poem as a memorial to her. Nothing I could write could do her justice or tell anyone of the joy she brought me, and all the times when I was depressed she would get up from her place on the couch and come over and walk into my lap as I sat in my recliner. She would look up at me with those soulful eyes like it’s Ok I’m here for you and she would nuzzle my arm and hands. Now I look for comfort and I have found none. I do believe that one day I will see her again and that’s all I know right now. I keep asking myself why, why her? So here is my poem to Gidget my little angel. I do love you so baby girl ......
You left this world the other day and I just couldn’t let you go, without holding you and kissing you. just so you would know.
That daddys always with you in each and every day. You’ll always fill my home with love and never go away.
Your spirit is my Angel and keeps this old house warm. You will always be beside me, no matter what the storm.
I had to look just one more time at your precious little face, and hold you tight, kiss your hair and have our last embrace. Your body was still warm as it waited for me there. a cold damp day it was when we had our last to share. To come to see you one more time before what was to be. I will never be the same I sure, without you next to me.
I miss you Gidget, my little one, who’s always made me smile. I may still have some time left here, but I will see you in a while

Oh my gosh, the tears are just falling down my cheeks.
What a beautiful poem for your little Gidget. I could feel the depth of your love for her in every word. I am so sorry that this happened. You will see Gidget again and until then she lives on in your heart. Please accept my sincere condolences for your loss. I'm sending you prayers of comfort. Barb (Angel Brandy's and Miriam's mom) ~forever~

Thank you for the kind words. My wife and I now have 2 puppies to care for and love. Gidget will never be replaced but we have love to share and we found these 2 adorable little ones to care for.
My life was changed by Gidget. She taught me patience, understanding, and what unconditional love was all about. I will see her again one day I have no doubt. In the meantime I know she is still with us, in spirit. She lives on in our hearts and minds and she gave me more in her 8 years on this earth than some people I am kin to for over 40 years.
Thanks so much for your reply and I wish you all the best,
Wes Roxey, and the new babies Angel and Misty
