Ch Polian My T Mite At Littletown
Our beloved Emma went to join her grandam at the
Rainbow Bridge today
Sleep well sweet baby

Emma died as a result of a pig headed vet giving her a rabies and booster shot on the same day against my expressed advice. Her new owners didn't understand what might happen and listened to the "professional"
 

Emma
Tiny and large
Kind and strong
Gentle and stubborn
The perfect Foo dog in all her ways
I can see her sitting in a garden in the Forbidden City in Beijing
Emma was everything a Peke should be
She will always have a special place in our hearts
We loved her completely

we are not sleeping too well.
Give 'em hell at the bridge Tulip.

***********
I stood by your bed last night, I came to have a peep.

I could see that you were crying, You found it hard to sleep.

      I whined to you softly as you brushed away a tear,
      "It's me, I havn't left you, I'm well,. I'm fine, I'm here."

 I was close to you at breakfast, I watched you pour the tea,
 You were thinking of the many times, your hands reached down to me.

 I was with you at the shops today, Yours arms were getting sore.
     I longed to take your parcels, I wish I could do more

 I was with you at my grave today, You tend it with such care
     I want to reassure you, that I'm not lying there.

 I walked with you towards the house, as you fumbled for your key.
  I gently put my paw on you, I smiled and said "It's me"

  You looked so very tired, and sank into a chair,
  I tried so hard to let you know, that I was standing there.

  It's possible for me, to be so near you everyday.
  To say to you with certainty, "I never went away."

  You sat there very quietly, then smiled, I think you knew....
  in the stillness of that evening, I was very close to you.

  The day is over...I smile and watch you yawning,
  and say "goodnight, God Bless, I'll see you in the morning"

  And when the time is right, for you to cross the brief divide,
  I'll rush across to greet you and we'll stand, side by side.
  I have so many things to show you, there is so much for you
  to see,  Be patient, live your journey out......
  then come home to be with me.

     Dedicated to all the wonderful Pekes in Heaven
      REFLECTIONS
    If I won the lottery I wouldn't care
    For the love of my life is no longer there.

    Bright eyes that look intently in mine,
    Soft  paws and kisses sweet moments sublime.
    I hear a love song.  Oh it tugs at my heart,
    Every facet of living, every dream he was part.
    I  find myself calling that dear little name,
    Silent echoes alert me, it isn't the same.

    In dreams we cuddle, run, play and have fun.
    Awake, bitter tears fall . for his day is done.

    He understands every word that I said,
    My thoughts, ideas, feelings, his little mind read.
    A small Chinese package with long silky hair,
    A precious Royal Prince, a Jewel so rare.
    From the tip of his nose to the plume of his tail,
    By such perfection and beauty, all others did pale.

    He was my sunshine. The light of my soul,
    Delight of my Life - Wonder all told.

    With prayerful whisper, I place a red rose,
    Within my bruised heart, I feel he knows.

    Wherever I go now, I'll miss you , my love,
    I know that your soul is in heaven above.

    thank God daily for his sweet life and breath

    Wistful Reflections while on bended knees,
    Ahhh! for I've had the love of a pekingese.

                                 Sallie Cynthia Manet

Don't be sad
  But first of all to let you know that I arrived okay.
  I'm writing this from the Rainbow Bridge.
 Here I dwell with God 
above
  Here there are no more tears of sadness;
there is just eternal love.

  Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight
  Remember that I am with you every morning noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through
  God picked me up and hugged me and He said,
 "I welcome you.
It's good to have you back again;
 you were missed while you were
gone.
  As for your dearest family they'll be here later on.
  I need you badly you are part of my plan
  There's so much we have to do to help our mortal man."
  God gave me a list of things that He wished for me to do
  And foremost on the list was to watch and care for you,
  And when you lie in bed at night the days chores put to flight,
  God and I are close to you in the middle of the night.
  When you think of life on earth and all those loving years
  Because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears
  But do not be afraid to cry, it does relieve the pain
  Remember there could be no flowers, unless there could be some rain
  I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
  If I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
  But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is over
  Now, more than ever before my life to you is closer.
  There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb
  But together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
  It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too
That as you give the world, the world will give to you.
  If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain
Then you can say to God at night, "my day was not in vain."
  And now I am contented that my life was worthwhile,
  Knowing as I passed along the way I made somebody smile.
  So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
  Lend a hand to pick him up as on your way you go.
  When you are walking down the street and you've got me on your mind
  I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.
And when it's time for you to go, from your body to be free,
 Remember you are not going. You are coming here to me.

When Tomorrow Starts Without Me
When tomorrow starts without me, 
And I'm not there to see;
If the sun should rise and find your eyes
All filled with tears for me;
I wish so much you wouldn't cry
The way you did today,
While thinking of the many things,
We didn't get to say.

I know how much you love me,
As much as I love you,
And each time that you think of me,
I know you'll miss me too;
But when tomorrow starts without me,
Please try to understand,
That an angel came and
called my name,
And took me by the hand,
And said my place was ready,
In Heaven far above,
And that I'd have to leave behind
All those I dearly love.

But as I turned to walk away,
A tear fell from my eye,
For all my life, I'd always thought,
I didn't want to die.
I had so much to live for,
So much yet to do,
It seemed almost impossible,
That I was leaving you.

I thought of all the yesterdays,
The good ones and the bad,
I thought of all the love we shared,
And all the fun we had.

If I could relive yesterday,
Just even for a while,
I'd say goodbye and kiss you
And maybe see you smile.
But then I fully realized,
That this could never be,
For emptiness and memories,
Would take the place of me.

And when I thought of worldly things,
I might miss come tomorrow,
I thought of you, and when I did,
My heart was filled with sorrow.

But when I walked through Heaven's gates,
I felt so much at home.
When God looked down and
smiled at me,
>From His great golden throne,
He said "This is eternity,
And all I've promised you."

Today for life on earth is past,
But here it starts anew.
I promise no tomorrow,
But today will always last,
and since each day's the same way
There's no longing for the past.

But you have been so faithful,
So trusting and so true.
Though there were times
you did some things,
You knew you shouldn't do.
But you have been forgiven
And now at last you're free.
So won't you take my hand
And share my life with me?

So when tomorrow starts without me,
Don't think we're far apart,
For every time you think of me,
I'm right here, in your heart.

David M Romano

Saying Goodbye.

You're giving me a special gift,
So sorrowfully endowed,
And through these last few cherished days,
Your courage makes me proud.

But really, love is knowing
When your best friend is in pain,
And understanding earthly acts
Will only be in vain.

So looking deep into your eyes,
Beyond, into your soul,
I see in you the magic, that will
Once more make me whole.

The strength that you possess,
Is why I look to you today,
To do this thing that must be done,
For it's the only way.

That strength is why I've followed you,
And chose you as my friend,
And why I've loved you all these years...
My partner 'til the end.

Please, understand just what this gift,
You're giving, means to me,
It gives me back the strength I've lost,
And all my dignity.

You take a stand on my behalf,
For that is what friends do.
And know that what you do is right,
For I believe it too.

So one last time, I breathe your scent,
And through your hand I feel,
The courage that's within you,
To now grant me this appeal.

Cut the leash that holds me here,
Dear friend, and let me run,
Once more a strong and steady dog,
My pain and struggle done.

And don't despair my passing,
For I won't be far away,
Forever here, within your heart,
And memory I'll stay.

I'll be there watching over you,
Your ever faithful friend,
And in your memories I'll run,
...a young dog once again.

                                          "God Love Him Please"

       As he slipped away my heart felt cold,      
And the gripping pain at once took hold,
 
My tears fell warm upon his head,

As I laid him softly in his bed.    
 God love him please, my heart cried,
   
My darling, Temper, my love, my pride.
 
 The words rang out in my heart alone,
 
 God love him please as You take him home.
  
    I've lost my heart, the rest of it,
   
  It's left a void, an empty pit.
    
  I watched the stars and saw him there
 
   With all the ones who left my care.

And now I'll sleep and dream of him,
 As I saw him run and play with them. 
 God love him please,
he's in Your care,
 
 And tell him someday I will be there.
