Less We Forget How Much We Love Them
Our Sweet McDuff
The Northfork of Long Island was very new to me,
But, we got you, Our Sweet McDuff, and you made me see
You were ours from 6 weeks to 7 years old,
And, of all the hearts I know, yours was a true gold
Your huge Saint Bernard paws and your very beautiful face,
showed us that life here was not to waste
People giggled and were awed at your gorgeous 180 lb. self,
You were magnificent, my man, in all your glorious stealth.
Some were afraid of you at first,
But you showed them love, then showed them slurp
We met people we never knew,
And now they are a part of our lives, all because of you.
Although we never asked, you sat at our front door,
And made our B&B guests feel safe and secure,
What a luck girl your little sister, Daisy, was,
To have you as her one and only love
So proud, so proud, so proud and blessed we all were to have you, our beautiful boy
That the only word that describes you is "joy"
You are in heaven now,
And to you, our Sweet McDuff, we all take a bow.
