Do Dogs Have Souls

Brandy  1988 - 2002


If tears could build a stairway
And memories were a lane
We would walk right up to heaven
And bring you back again

No farewell words were spoken
No time to say goodbye
You were gone before we knew it
And only God knows why

Our hearts still ache in sadness
And secret tears still flow
What it meant to lose you
No one can ever know

But now we know you want us
To mourn for you no more
To remember all the happy times
Life still has much in store

Since you'll never be forgotten
We pledge to you today
A hallowed place within our hearts
Is where you'll always stay 



I will lend to you for awhile, a pup, God said,
For you to love him while he lives and mourn for him when he's dead.

Maybe for twelve or fourteen years, or maybe two or three,
But will you, 'till I call him back, take care of him for me?


He'll bring his charms to gladden you and (should his stay be brief),
you'll always have his memories as solace for your grief.




I cannot promise he will stay, since all from earth return,
But there are lessons taught below I want this pup to learn.



I've looked the whole world over in search of teachers true,
And from the folk that crowd's life's land I have chosen you.



Now will you give him all your love Nor think the labour vain,
Nor hate me when I come to take my Pup back again



I fancied that I heard them say "Dear Lord Thy Will be Done,"
For all the joys this Pup will bring, the risk of grief we'll run.



We'll shelter him with tenderness we'll love him while we may,
And for the happiness we've known forever grateful stay.



 But should you call him back much sooner than we've planned,
We'll brave the bitter grief that comes, and try to understand.



If, by our love, we've managed, your wishes to achieve
In memory of him we loved, to help us while we grieve.



When our faithful bundle departs this world of strife,
We'll have yet another Pup and love him all his life

Each and every one of these pets has left their paw prints on their owners hearts.  It is very painful to lose a  beloved pet, but we all choose to suffer the pain, because the joy and love that these furry friends have  brought to us, will be remembered forever...  For every star on this page, there is a dogs soul waiting for it's beloved owner to come and join him again.  As long as we remember them, they are never truly gone, only waiting out of our reach for a little while.
