Rosie

A Poem By Hannah W. // 9/23/2008

I shall miss your utter stupidity,
even though it used to annoy,
I shall miss you living under my bed,
even though you chewed up my toys

You made me feel safe,
and hid during thunder,
You jumped on my bed,
and messed up my covers

You smelled and you shed,
you barked constantly,
you tore up the carpet,
(who cares, it was ugly)

You were a nanny,
a wolf, and a babysitter,
a reindeer, a horse--
(a real derby winner)

We played under the table
and behind the chair,
We laid on the floor
and my scraps I did share

You slept in my bed
when I had a bad dream,
you never would bite,
you comforted me

You got on the couch
though mom told you no,
you rolled in the grass,
you played in the snow

You got lost,
(I missed you too)
You came home one evening,
so I'm thanking you:

For eleven and a half
years of love,
happiness, life--
and even dumb.

Rosie, Rosie, this is for you,
my furry old sister, tried and true...
If I didn't have you, I wouldn't have known
how wonderful it is to have a dog in my home.

*This is for my dog, Rosie, who died on Sunday night. I'd had her since I was 2 years old. She was the dumbest dog ever, and that sounds mean, but it has kind of become a term of endearment. All my fondest memories are the stupidest things she did-- and the sweetest.*

That's so sad...
I had a guinea pig named Rosie, but she died three days after we got her. I was a wreck. :(
Sweet poem, and I hope you feel better soon!

I love the poem, but I'm SOOO sorry about your dog!!!! When my old dog Oreo dies, I'll be so depressed.

You almost made me cry

Did she just die? or did you have to put her down? We had to put our dog, Princess down in Nov. I still miss her

they put our dog, Callie, down she was a leonberger (mix of great peranise and saint bernard) she had a tumor, and got to the point where she didn't move much and laid on the ground. :(

Yeah, they had to put her down. I think with dogs they become such a part of the family that you miss them for a long, long time. And my old guinea pig, becuase guinea pigs live for quite a while too.
