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.

Rescue This Cockapoo: Evie

Location: New Jersey, USA

Live in the New Jersey area and have room in your hearts and homes for another cockapoo? The picture to the left of this text is Evie, a loving cockapoo located in New Jersey, whose owner has come to face the difficult decision of letting her go to a new home. The text below is from our Facebook page, re-posted with permission by the original poster.

It’s with a very heavy heart that I have to announce that I need to rehome my beautiful cockapoo Evie. We have fallen into some very hard times and with me losing my job, we are now in the position we have to sell our house. 

EVIE is located in South Jersey and I would absolutely love to be able to place her in a home with another cockapoo….it takes her a few minutes to warm up to new dogs but once she does watch out it’s buddies for life. She is 4 yrs old, light cream. She is best around teenage kids (high energy), she is also housebroken, spayed, and extremely SMART! She will do anything for a “Treat”.

All I want for her is to be a part of a family that will love her as much as we do. If you can or know of anyone that is willing to open their heart to our Evie, I would greatly appreciate it! I will post pictures of her later today.

You can contact Flor at [email protected], or by logging on to our FB Page and talking to her there. We will update this story as things change.

Update from Flor (10/22/12):

I wanted to update everyone that Evie has indeed found her new family. 

Thank you to everyone that inquired about Evie and a very special thank you to “Cockapoo Crazy” because I know that I found the “perfect home” because of your support and networking. I already miss her terribly but I know deep down she is with a new family that will love her as much as we do…and that is all I truely wanted for my Evie Queen.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

So Evie is settling in with her new family, and as much as she will be missed by her old family, what they have done is highly commendable. So many dogs end up euthanized or abandoned when their owners can no longer care for them. Flor stepped up to the plate and made sure Evie went to a good home!

We are glad we could help, and we wish all dog owners cared as much as Flor and her family.
