duncanTo the Windham County Humane Society: I adopted Duncan from your shelter about 12.5 years ago. He was a 6 week old beagle-basset hound mix. Thank you for letting me adopt him. I released him to the Rainbow Bridge last Wednesday. Below is my tribute: I met you at the shelter 6 weeks and sweet. Alone in your cell, such tiny feet. I paid the fee to bring you home with me. Years have passed and here we are so fast. Fare thee well my friend, I was with you ’til the end. I released your tired body this afternoon. You should reach the bridge by the shine of the moon. For many many years, you’ve been my buddy and always near. You’ve kissed my nose and slept on my toes. Lots of bones and frosty paws, the love in your eyes I saw. I dream of your days in the sun, having you was so much fun. I slept on the floor with you last night, praying with all my might. That God would give you another year but I knew and I feared. Your time on earth was done. I already miss you tons and tons. Go now and run in the snow and the sun. Just as you did when life begun. I know I will still reach for your supper bowl. Then I will remember my heart is no longer whole. Thank you for all your love and cheer. Know that I remember you clear. When God calls me home, meet me at the gate. We will ride the boat, this time you’re first mate. We will travel the world you and me, in search of the very best treats. We will be together again like before. Duncan, I love you more and more.
