    THE BEST PLACE TO BURY A DOG

    "There is one best place to bury a dog.
    "If you bury him in this spot, he will
    come to you when you call - come to you
    over the grim, dim frontier of death,
    and down the well-remembered path,
    and to your side again.

    "And though you call a dozen living
    dogs to heel, they shall not growl at
    him, nor resent his coming,
    for he belongs there.

    "People may scoff at you, who see
    no lightest blade of grass bent by his
    footfall, who hear no whimper, people
    who may never really have had a dog.
    Smile at them, for you shall know
    something that is hidden from them,
    and which is well worth the knowing.

    "The one best place to bury a good
    dog is in the heart of his master."

    --- Ben Hur Lampman ---
    from the Portland Oregonian Sept. 11, 1925

    My dear Dexter boy, you are always in my heart. Three years when you passed I planted a Honeysuckle vine in your honor and two days ago on my birthday you blew the sweet honeysuckle scent to me on the patio. Thank you for remembering. I love you and miss you.

    That is beautiful, Christy. Thanks for sharing the poem and the honeysuckle.

    Hugs,

    Death is not a changing of worlds as most imagine, as much as the walls of this world infinitely expanding.
