Parting Shots




Vienne la nuit sonne l'heure
Les jours s'en vont je demeure

Passent les jours et passent les semaines
Ni temps pass`e
Ni les amours reviennent
Sous le pont Mirabeau coule la Seine

-Le Ponte du Mirabeau
Appollinaire



Let the night fall and the hours ring
The days go by, I remain

The days pass and the weeks pass
Neither past time
Nor past loves return
Under the Mirabeau bridge flows the Seine


Farewell for now Dennett, we had an amazing journey together these past many years. You're off on a new adventure but we'll catch up to you in our own times. Promise.

  2. I'm so sorry for the loss of Dennett, whom I've come to think of as your "little picture book" dog.

    Comfort and peace to you.

  4. Theresa and Gene, I am so sorry for the passing of Dennett. His shaggy little face was my personal favorite off all your doggie friends. He was so much like my Dad's favorite dog.

  5. Theresa, I am so sorry for your loss. Dennett is happy and pain free now, and waiting for you. It is so hard, I know. Take gentle care of yourself and your family as you all grieve.

  6. Oh Theresa, I'm so, so sorry. I know he lived a good life and you knew his days would come to an end, but it's heartbreaking just the same. Hugs to you.

  7. I must confess that of all your brood there, I had a soft spot for Dennett. So we are shedding a tear for him here as well. Perhaps our Connor is greeting him at the Rainbow bridge?

    Maybe the pain of their passing is equal to the love they shared? If so then they blessed our lives immensely.

    Hugs, Susan

  9. Oh Dennet,

    You brought more love and joy into this world than you could possibly hold, and you shared it unsparingly with all who knew you.

    As the snow falls, it fills your wee paw prints where ever you did roam. In the spring, the snow will melt, showing where you were and where you always will be…, in the hearts of many.

  15. I'm so sorry. It's just so hard to say good-bye and their lives never seem long enough. Dogs add so much to our lives just by being by our side each and every day. Take care of yourself, Theresa.

  17. Tears in my eyes. Safe travels Dennett. Ours are there to play with you now.
    No words to sooth although your post
    even soothed me.
    It is the hardest. We keep going here and every time wonder how we can bear it again.
