Weep not for me
now that I have passed.
Remember the laughter, the affection, the joy
 
Cherish the memories, our hopes and dreams.
Hold fast to the love that we shared.
Be happy with the time we spent together
and being anew.
For I am not really gone,
I am closer than ever before.
 
As the morning sun rises
and throughout the busy day...I am with you.
Until the setting sun disappears on the horizon
and we watch the day turn into night...I am here.
 
The stars that shine so brightly in my heavenly sky
help me watch over you and keep you from harm.
 
I am the wind in the trees
and the song of a bird.
I am moonbeams in a midnight sky
and a glorious rainbow after the storm.
I am morning dew
and freshly-fallen snow.
I am a butterfly flying overhead
and a puppy happily at play.
I am a smile on a stranger's face
a gentle touch
a warm embrace.
 
Listen to the wind for my message of love.
Watch the sun rise and set in the sky with me.
 
Open your heart to know...I am not gone.
Reach deep into your soul...You will find me.
 
 
He was my Knight in Shining Armor and the King of my Heart.

Auggie was born the only male out of a sensational litter of four pups and I couldn't pass on the opportunity to keep him for myself. Besides his Princely pedigree, he carried with him his grand dam's dark, penetrating eyes; his dam's athletic spirit and ability; his grandsire's zest for the show ring; and his uncle's bold posture. Most of all, Auggie possessed his sire's gentlemanly kindness. 

 
Auggie's life was full of hopes and expectations as any Prince's would be, but in my house he was my left hand companion and gently walked in the huge paw prints of his well-known ancestors. Auggie finished his AKC Championship in short order with many (owner/breeder/handled) wins to be proud of.

Auggie had a persona unique to himself. He was as soft as a flower yet strong as a bull. His footsteps were silent yet filled with power. He always watched into the eyes of those close to his heart to be sure they were showing comfort. Auggie had the ability to recognize hurt feelings before they occurred and made certain his shoulder was always available for leaning on.

 
Being the only man in the house, Auggie found himself endlessly learning his role, watching over "the girls" and me. He always put himself of last importance and never seemed to complain. His alluring nature gave Auggie that special "teddy-bear" charm.
 
 
I lost my heart the day Auggie passed on. He took with him the comfort, the Armor I felt when he was so uniquely placed in my doorways, watching over me with the promise of safety from every angle.  He shared my pillow, my thoughts, my every day.
 
He continues to touch me with every sun rise, warming my soul

with every evening sky I see my Knight, shining ever so bright.

 

May God grant you always...

A sunbeam to warm you,

a moonbeam to charm you,

a sheltering Angel so nothing can harm you.

 

Laughter to cheer you.

Faithful friends near you.

And whenever you pray, Heaven to hear you.
