Ode to Boo

Kathleen's Ode to Boo

Her name was Boo

and she was my pet

we spent a lot of time at the vet

she had a bad back

low thyroid too

allergies and dry eye

ate special food

she hated other dogs

we called her the queen

she like to sail

to cuddle

and eat

I had to say goodbye

last July

Boo, I miss you still

Thanks for teaching me how wonderful it is to share my life with canine companions, otherwise known as DOGS!

Dear Murphey and Kathleen

My mum still cries for Jessie and all her doggies and horses and her wild bird 'little one' she has lost these last few years. She knows their spirits are still with her, but she misses them so much. She hugs me a lot and my brothers and sister too coz we keep her going. I'm sorry to hear of your loss of Boo.

Love from Hammer

Murph & Kathleen,

That Boo was a cute girlie - she seemed to be smiling in most of those photos. She's definitely part of your loveline. Murph, aren't you glad Boo convinced Kath to bestow her love upon deserving pups such as yourself & Reilly?

To Boo! Salute!

Goober love,
