PET LOSS SUPPORT
This page came about for several reasons, all of which deal with the heartbreak of losing of a beloved pet.
find ourselves stopping along side roads to assist injured animals that
have been hit by traffic. We also find ourselves mourning the loss of
those that have been hit and tragically killed. We then try to locate
the owner and if we cannot, we carefully wrap the deceased animal, place
the deceased animal off the road, and attach a note of condolence and
that we had found the him/her and provide our contact information.
have also experienced the loss and heartbreak of our own animal
companions throughout our lives and feel offering Pet Loss Support is a
necessary component in dealing with the loss of a loved one.

DEDICATIONS AND MEMORIALS
A Mostly Padron Poem
ML MOSTLY PADRON: THE PROMISE
written by Frances T. Butler - copyright 2003
The makings of a legend
In a colt
Like the desert moon
Can touch the soul.
A chestnut of so
Deep a hue, his coat,
When kissed by light,
Like rich mahogany;
In silk and satin finer
Then the richest Persian rug;
Mane tinged with red and gold;
Streaking down a face
Sculpted by a Master hand;
A stallion blessed with
Eyes like desert pools,
Dark with mystery,
Deep wells of kindness
That reveal a gentle soul;
Tight, strong body,
In perfect symmetry,
Arch of neck reflected
In the carriage
Of his tail;
The poetry of motion
In every stride:
He floats on air,
Nostrils wide to taste the breeze.
The wind whispers
Pays homage to his line.
The past and the present
Of his breed
Are focused in his blood;
The promise of the future
Lies in his seed.

Life's Eternal Song
I hold you 'till Life's Breath
I cry for all I'm worth
Even though I know we share a memory
Of you and I on Earth.
As I sit upon the windowsill
Looking out into the rain
There's still a brightness in the sky
That clears away the pain
As I look into the Heavens
I feel that you are gone
But I know that you are there with God
Singing Life's Eternal Song
