'My Border Collie X Ben (Benny)'

by Terry
(Wigan UK)

Ben my Border Collie cross was born Febuary 1995 he was a crazy pup into everything. He grew up with my two daughters, who where three and six.

5th August Ben was very ill and we took him to the vets where he was put to sleep god bless him. I know one day we shall run over the fields again...

Our Ben was born Febuary 1995 left us 5th August 2011 16 1/2 years old.

R I P my best friend.

A Little Dog Angel

High up in the courts of heaven today
a little dog angel waits;
with the other angels he will not play,
but he sits alone at the gates.
"For I know my master will come" says he,
"and when he comes he will call for me."

The other angels pass him by
As they hurry toward the throne,
And he watches them with a wistful eye
as he sits at the gates alone.
"But I know if I just wait patiently
that someday my master will call for me."

And his master, down on earth below,
as he sits in his easy chair,
forgets sometimes, and whispers low
to the dog who is not there.
And the little dog angel cocks his ears
and dreams that his master's voice he hears.

And when at last his master waits
outside in the dark and cold,
for the hand of death to open the door,
that leads to those courts of gold,
he will hear a sound through the gathering dark,
a little dog angel's bark.
