Syd – a farewell for the very best

 

 

 

 

 

Our hearts 💕are broken
Our tears are flowing😢
TODAY we lost someone
Who was  WELL WORTH knowing

SYD, Kathy and Dave’s beloved standard poodle
Was a  dog of  GREAT renown

Known FAR and WIDE and all around town

He  surely was ONE of the VERY BEST
By the BEST
I mean BEST DOG IN SHOW
Admired and loved WHEREVER he did go

His manners were IMPECCABLE
Never BARKED LOUDLY,   GROWLED, NOR HOWLED
Never EVEN took a bite

In fact, never gave a single soul a FRIGHT
And for those who have met him they will NEVER forget him

We will REMEMBER:

 SYD’S GENTLEMANLY WAYS:
Didn’t gobble his food, only chewed, always polite, never rude

WE’LL REMEMBER:
Syd’s  patience, while waiting for bacon

WE’LL REMEMBER:
How squirrels were chased, but always out of reach

WE’LL REMEMBER:
How he loved  to run,  and how he loved to  walk on the beach

WE’LL REMEMBER:
The way that he tilted his head, understanding EVERY  word that was said

WE’LL REMEMBER:
The tail wags, when you tickled him under his chin.  I’m sure that he definitely managed a grin.

Syd was LOVED, he was CARED for,  his life was the BEST
May you go peacefully SYD,   be at rest

May the squirrels be waiting to give you a chase
May Walter be up for a very fast race
May you know that we loved you

We’ll love you forever
There never was a dog who could have been better.
