in memoriam

Unvergessen sind alle unsere fell-, feder- oder panzertragenden Gefährten, die uns eine Zeit lang begleitet haben, waren es nun Wellensittiche, Papageien, Schildkröten oder Hunde.

Kylie's Vorgängerin CHICA war unser Seelenhund - bildschön, mit großem will-to-please, vielen Talenten, die sie im Obedience, beim Agility, bei Dog Tricks und bei der Fährtensuche unter Beweis stellen konnte - eine totale Wasserratte und einfach  zum liebhaben. Ein besonderer Hund, ein sanftmütiges Pelztier mit Clownsgesicht! Wir hatten 17 gemeinsame Jahre und in all den Jahren hat sie uns nur Freude gemacht.

 

-- english version --

Unforgotten are all our pet companions with either fur, feathers or carapax that accompanied us for a while, whether they were budgerigars, parrots, tortoises or dogs.

Kylie's predecessor, CHICA, was our once-in-a-lifetime dog, pretty as a picture, with a lot of will-to-please, and many abilities she could prove in doing obedience, agility, dog tricks and tracking search - a water enthusiast and just adorable. A special dog, a gentle furry animal with a clown's face. We had 17 years together, and in all those years she has always been simply a real pleasure.

 

DOG - MY FRIEND

When God had made the earth and sky, the flowers and the trees,
he then made all the animals, the fish and birds and bees.
And when at last he`d finished, not one was quite the same.
He said, I`ll walk this world of mine and give each one a name.

And so he travelled far and wide, and everywhere he went
a little creature followed him until its strength was spent.
When all were named upon the earth and in the sky and sea
the little creature said, "Dear Lord, there`s not one left for me!"

Kindly, the Father said to him, "I left you to the end.
I turned my own name back to front
and called you DOG, my friend."
