A COCKAPOO STORY: HONEY BUN

On May Day 2000 a Cockapoo was born,
Little to my surprise she would eventually honk my horn.

June 30th we lost little red with a kind and gentle soul,
The loss of our brother Jeff left our hearts with a hole.

On the 4th anniversary of the loss of this soul,
A little red and blond pup was sent my way,
And I opened my arms, and my heart became whole.

Sugar Pie Honey Bun was her tune,
As I became her Mama late in June.

She loved Gracie so so much,
They could not resist each other’s touch.

Gracie tickled her tail and offered a giggle,
Honey would run away very quickly with a wiggle.

Barky, barky, barky as she heard a knock at the door,
Honey went running on her furry four.

Miss Honey Bun Bunches was a nickname given one day,
And many kisses were always sent her way.

Such a sweet and gentle face,
I could not resist and had to embrace.

A trip to the bank we go for a treat,
As she jumped on my lap with her furry feet.

She loved to fill her tummy,
With her favorite nummies.

A run in the park and as happy as can be,
She ran so fast but always came back to me.

Her Gracie was her favorite playmate,
So much so they often met for a date.

Papa’s hands were quite full with his 2 favorite girls,
Especially when they jumped and gave many whirls.

Her Aunt Nicole said it best,
Honey had a permanent little smile,
Always waiting for a few crumbs on her tile.

Diggy, diggy, diggy, there she goes again,
Usually just before the clock ticked ten.

She was her Grandpa’s furry lil sidekick,
And often gave him a gentle lil lick.

She gave her Grandpa so much love and joy,
And always wanted him to play with her favorite toy.

She had 2 adoring pals, Landry and Bently,
They both adored her so and treated her quite gently.

Enjoyed frolicking in the winter snow,
She often missed her favorite beaus.

Is your tummy full? Mama asked with delight,
Although we all knew she couldn’t resist sneaking a bite.

Often tears came to my eyes,
Dreading the day when it came to say our good byes.

Lying on her pillow beside me, nigh nigh she goes,
I would gently give her a kiss on her wet lil nose.

Today my heart is broken over the loss of my Honey Bun,
I can still hear the pitter patter of her feet as I call you Hun.

She will not be a memory in my mind,
But will remain in my heart because she was very kind .

Mama could not love her anymore,
Because this sweet pup was to adore.

On her passing day, her Aunt Nicole gave her a kiss,
To this sweet little Miss.

She gave us one last little wiggle,
Which I will never forget,
Because she was the most loving pet.

Moments before we part,
I held my baby and felt the last beat of her heart.

On your Mama’s birthday, I held her on my chest,
And she went on her journey and final rest.

Honey nestled in my neck and gently sighed,
It was then we said our good byes.

As I held her in my arms,
I whispered ever so softly,
My girl, my girl, my girl, I love you so much,
She was at peace as we had our last touch.

She is my angel that taught me to love,
I sure hope that she can see me from up above.

I often said to her as she looked into my eyes,
Do you know how much your Mommy loves you?
Your Mommy loves you so so much,
I can’t love you more than I do,
Because you will always be, my Cockapoo.
