You came to us battered, bruised and scared.
You'd been neglected and abused
by someone who was supposed to care.
One look at you and we both said,
"We'll take you home with us to live."
Then we named you Fred.
Little by little, day by day
you learned to trust.
Your fear of people went away.
Allowing us to see
A wonderful dog who was, at last, happy.
On RV journeys we did go.
You made lots of friends
A cat, some dogs, and lots of people.
Oh the places you've been are something to behold.
In life, as we all know, lots of things are beyond our control.
You became sick.
The cancer took its toll.
Much too soon we had to say goodbye
To explain how sad we are
I can't even try.
Now you've crossed the Rainbow Bridge
And of one thing I am certain
For you there will be no more hurting.

But, as we all know, life goes on. We met with our boss yesterday and actually worked all afternoon. John worked with another man clearing property and I removed tree protectors. Poor John got smacked in the face by a blackberry bush resulting in a bloody nose. Ouch!
We were off today so we took care of household stuff and went out to get some groceries. Funny how quickly the grocery store runs come around.
I hope to get some pictures of the refuge to post real soon.
Laugh everyday. Happy trails. Stay safe.
