Lend Me a Pup
I will lend to you
for a while, a German Shepherd pup, God said,
For you to love him while he lives and mourn for him when he's dead.
Maybe for twelve or fourteen years, or maybe two or three
But will you, 'till I call him back, take care of him for me.
He'll bring his
charms to gladden you and should his stay be brief
you'll always have his memories as solace for your grief.
I cannot promise he will stay, since all from earth return
But there are lessons taught below I want this pup to learn.
I've looked the
whole world over in search of teachers true
And from the folk that crowd's life's land I have chosen you.
Now will you give him all your love Nor think the labor vain,
Nor hate me when I come to take my Shepherd back again.
I fancied that I
heard them say "Dear Lord Thy Will be Done,"
For all the joys this Shepherd will bring, the risk of grief we'll run.
We'll shelter him with tenderness we'll love him while we may
And for the happiness we've known forever grateful stay
But should you call
him back much sooner than we've planned,
We'll brave the bitter grief that comes, and try to understand.
If, by our love, we've managed, your wishes to achieve
In memory of him we loved, to help us while we grieve,
When our faithful bundle departs this world of strife,
We'll have yet another German Shepherd and love him all his life.

"Popeye - my friend, my protector"
Popeye was a son of Amy (out of her one and only litter). He was born 8th October 1998 and passed away 4th February 2006. He was a very special dog and had a very keen sense and would have protected me to the end. A dog like Popeye is few and far between and it was a pleasure to own him and have him as part of my life. He was My Friend, My Protector.
