'Rosie Crockett'

 Feb. 5, 1997 - July 11, 2011


Eyes bright and keen in youth

Mind full of artful mischief

Ears that heard a mole whisper

Feet so quick and spry

Trying moments when woodland quests

Took you far away from home

Neighbor's complaints, fences and collars

Could not hold you

A leash would snap in seconds

To catch a garden thief

Nothing safe from the hunter's jaws

Yet so gentle you were with children

Even your own

Jaws that crushed bone, I never feared

Age brought changes

You moved far away with me

Freedom no longer your companion

Morning and night we walked the dark roads

You helped me see such beauty at dawn

Now you rise and fall without dignity

Legs once strong so weak beneath

A frame still so full of love

Yet ever loyal your heart is to mine

Eyes sometimes blankly stare

I wonder where your thoughts might wander

To the woods where you run with deer

Do you still catch moles in your dreams my love

Or play again in fields wild and free

I am grateful for everything you've given me

Love beyond all measure, without bounds

I know your time with me is coming to a close

But I am grateful that somehow you found me

That we've been granted these many years

Your love rescued me time and again

Devotion unmatched, laughter so rich

Forever you will be by my side

Amy L Crockett DVM


For my Rosie


 2/2000 -  11/2011

 We will miss you more than words can say. You have brought so much joy into our lives for the last 10 years. We did not want this day to come, but we will see you again in Heaven my sweet girl. We love you always.

'Maja' my Maja

Gone from this world

When your work was done.

Although I tell everyone

I rescued you

you really rescued me.

From that first day when

I saw you and you were

Let out of the cage

You shot directly onto my lap

With your nose about an inch

From my own.

We are still buddies

Although apart

One day we will be

Together again

At the Rainbow Bridge

Until then my Love

You can play and have fun

When you see me at the

Rainbow Bridge

You will know that our work

is done.

In memory of Maja Jean Babbitt
