27 December 2011


Thinking about the past year
Wonderful and sad
All the places we have been
And all the fun we've had.

Missing all the pals who've gone
To the Rainbow Bridge.
Missing Grandpa Ace but know
He's up there raiding the fridge.

Thinking 'bout the year to come
And the changes there will be
Already missing my Asta Sweet
Wish she could stay with me.

Thankful I have my family
And even Teka Toy
May be sad and pensive now
But I'm a lucky boy!

Hope that all my doggie pals
Will have some time today
To think about the happy times
And the good things on the way.

Sending love to all the world
And lots of kisses too.
Oh, and Teka sends her best
To every one of you.
