(A reposting) This is my adopted retired racing Greyhound, Abby Rose, with her Trick or Treat basket, her “Boo” scarf, her pumpkin head gear, and her tongue hanging in anticipation of some doggy Halloween treats. Unfortunately, a few weeks after this picture was taken, I lost her to an auto-immune disease at age five. This was devastating, as she was my first dog and truly my “heart dog.”

Abby Rose was adopted through Greyhound Rescue & Rehabilitation in Cross River, New York.

FIRST DOG, HEART DOG

An ocean of tears
Still the sadness lingers
First dog, heart dog
Tender, gentle one
Abby Rose, my greyhound girl
Departed life too soon
I look upward late
One very cold night
A heavenly gift
Sixty-seven shooting stars
Crisscross above
The biggest and the brightest
Arches sprightly across the sky
Directly over me
A very special visitor
Shows me now
She’s running free and happy
Finally I can smile
And I do
