Today would have been Laddie's 12th birthday. Here's a little poem that I wrote in honor of his special day.
Today is Laddie's birthday..I'm here to tell you so..
The puppy came into this world just 12 years ago.
He was a little rascal playing with his toys..
The red ball was his favorite and it brought him so much joy.
He liked to chew on furniture with his little pointed teeth..
He played till he was tired then he fell into a heap.
This puppy grew to be a dog that everybody loved..
He's gone to be in Heaven now and is playing up above.
He left a big hole in our hearts to fill it would be hard..
The tales of many days gone by when he was playing in our yard.
Chasing rabbits was his favorite thing.. he did it in his sleep..
The memory of that dear dog is one that we we'll always keep.
I like to think he's chasing rabbits and running up above..
When we finally go to meet him and show him lots of love.
