Good Charlotte

Charlotte the Vet called on Saturday morning. She had called me the night before on her mobile to reassure me that the Blonde was moping, evidently missing home. Charlotte has been calling a lot, updating me on every step of the Blonde's recovery. I thanked her, and she told me that Peter would call in the morning.

But Peter didn't call. Charlotte did. Charlotte called with a catch in her voice. Hi, Rosie. Then she started, ever so quietly, to cry.

Sorry for your loss Rosie. I found this poem a few years ago when my first dog died.

THE POWER OF THE DOG
Rudyard Kipling

There is sorrow enough in the natural way
From men and women to fill our day;
But when we are certain of sorrow in store,
Why do we always arrange for more?
Brothers and sisters I bid you beware
Of giving your heart to a dog to tear.

Buy a pup and your money will buy
Love unflinching that cannot lie--
Perfect passion and worship fed
By a kick in the ribs or a pat on the head.
Nevertheless it is hardly fair
To risk your heart for a dog to tear.

When the fourteen years that nature permits
Are closing in asthma or tumors or fits
And the vet's unspoken prescription runs
To lethal chambers, or loaded guns.
Then you will find--its your own affair
But--you've given your heart to a dog to tear.

When the body that lived at your single will
When the whimper of welcome is stilled (how still!)
When the spirit that answered your every mood
Is gone--wherever it goes--for good,
You still discover how much you care
And will give your heart to a dog to tear.

We've sorrow enough in the natural way
When it comes to burying Christian clay.
Our loves are not given, but only lent,
At compound interest of cent per cent.
Though it is not always the case, I believe,
That the longer we've kept 'em the more do we grieve;
For when debts are payable, right or wrong,
A short time loan is as bad as a long--
So why in Heaven (before we are there)
Should we give our hearts to a dog to tear?

Oh dear. I just found your blog and then I read this. Which makes me want to run home to my dog, who has had a minor tummy upset all over the living room floor. Anyway, I still had to go to work today (the news don't print itself, y'all) leaving behind one big-eyed Lola dog and taking with me a guilty, heavy heart. All this to say, I am so sorry about your dog.

Rosie said...

thanks, all.
