You came when you were young, so full of life and fear.

We thought there would be time.

There's never enough time.

 

You lunged at all non-greyhounds, and hid your fear with growls.

We hoped you'd calm with time.

There's never enough time.

 

The years ran past, and you still did not like dogs.

We thought, there's plenty of time.

There's never enough time.

 

You loved humans you met, you'd stand and lean for rubs.

We thought there would be time.

There's never enough time.

 

We lost your sister Char, four years older than you.

We thought we had more time.

There's never enough time.

 

You chose your galgo brother, we hoped you'd learn to play.

We thought there would be time.

There's never enough time.

 

We loved to see you bond, and puppy-pile on our bed.

We thought we'd years of time.

There's never enough time.

We watched as you grew old, your legs and back got stiff.

We thought there was more time.

There's never enough time.

 

We took you to be healed, and learned the end was near.

There was just no more time.

There's never enough time.

 

Now we give you our last gift, and soon you will run free.

We thought there would be time.

There's never enough time.

 

The house will be so quiet, as the rest of us go on.

Now all we have is time.

There's never enough time.

 

Goodbye, my Declan Branwell, my Doodles, Declan B.

You have no need of time.

For us, there's never enough time.

Your pain is gone, and you can toss your stuffies forever, shovel-nose and cuddle, run with Charlotte and, of course, eat ham.

There's never enough time.

When a relationship of love is disrupted, the relationship does not cease. The love continues; therefore, the relationship continues. The work of grief is to reconcile and redeem life to a different love relationship. ~ W Scott Lineberry

"It came to me that every time I lose a dog they take a piece of my heart with them. And every new dog who comes into my life, gifts me with a piece of their heart. If I live long enough, all the components of my heart will be dog, and I will become as generous and loving as they are." -- Unknown
