SHAMROCK, I miss you
Shamrock was like our 5th child. She should have been named Shadow. I went no where without her.
All she had in her was love, pure love. She couldn't have been mean to anyone or anything if she tried to be.
Everyday she would greet me at the door with whatever "thing" she could find on the floor as her present. Tail wagging as if to say, "I've missed you so much, I'm so glad you are home!"
We had her only 7 short years, she had cancer and had to be put to sleep.
It's been 6 months, but I can't get over the loss. We have a new Golden now, and we love him too, but he can never replace my Shamrock.
They say that if you get one good dog in your life, consider yourself lucky. Well I had one, maybe this new one will be too, but I'll never forget Shamrock.
She had unconditional love, pure and simple. Her eyes shined with light and love.
I've had quite a few dogs in my life, but there is something different about a Golden Retriever. It's as though they are filled to the brim with joy and love that they have to give to you.
I'll never own any other breed. Goodbye Shamrock, wait for me, and I will see you again.
