256-smarty-2Stamboom naam: Thurbajen's JUST MY STYLE

Roepnaam: Smarty

Eigenaar: Sue Thexton, De Peppelenbosh

106-smarty-1

Als pup was het duidelijk: ze was een slimmerik en dus noemde ik haar "Smarty".

Smarty is het begin van mijn Labrador kennel en de moeder van vijf gezonde nestjes. Als de matriarch van De Peppelenbosch stond ze aan de basis van vele bekende nakomelingen in zowel binnen als buitenland.

Ik ben haar meer verschuldigd dan zij mij ooit zal zijn.

Smarty was een bejaarde dame, meer grijs dan de mooie donkere chocolade vacht die ze ooit had. Ondanks haar hoge leeftijd had ze duidelijk nog steeds plezier in het leven.

We zijn treurig om het verlies maar blij dat ze tot op het laatste moment in staat was, vrolijk met haar staart zwaaiend, door de tuin te snuffelen.

I'm still there

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 haven'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 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 will 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.
