Cuddly and soft as a little pup.

Obnoxious as she was growing up.

Zipping around here and there.

Yet never going anywhere.

She’s been so loving these many years,

Helping to chase away the blues and tears.

Always there to be a friend,

No matter how bad the day has been.

When there’s a chill, she warms you up,

To hold her name of “COZY” up.

In the morning she’s there to tell you ‘bye’,

In the evening she’s there to tell you ‘hi’.

What you would have done without her,

You just don’t know.

And it will be hard to prepare,

To let her go.

But this is something that you must do,

And cherish the memories that will

Get you through.

PENNY September 30, 1988


                         P et of my heart.

                         E ver dear to me.

                         N ever any trouble.

                         N othing but company.

                         Y et very special to me.

                                    Penny I love you more than you know.

                                   I hope you understand all I’ve tried to show.

                                   I hope you’ve understood every hug or touch.

                                   You’ve been so very special and meant so very much.

                                   So soon the time come, I ‘ll have to let you go.

                                   I just had to tell you these things, so that you would know.

                                   To have a better pet, I could not succeed.

                                   You filled an empty spot and a need.

                                   But when at last the time should come,

                                   I have to say Good-Bye,

                                   I’ll try to know you’re better then,

                                   And have sweet memories when I cry.


I love you
