Sad news

One of my favorite Dogs has gone home. Please visit her people and give them a hug.

Weep not for me though I am gone
into that gentle night.
Grieve if you will, but not for long
upon my soul's sweet flight.
I am at peace, my soul's at rest
there is no need for tears
For with your love, I was so blessed
for all those many years.
There is no pain, I suffer not
the fear now is all gone.
Put now these things out of your thoughts,
in your memory I live on.
Remember not my fight for breath
remember not the strife
lease do not dwell upon my death
but celebrate my life.

This is very sad news. I left a message. To answer your question, I did write a limerick for a Snowshoe Siamese cat -- Chairman Mao. I would be happy to write one about the breed and one for you, too.
