santa rope's last stand

he wuz a jolly, friendly soul;
his belly was a jelly bowl;
he never brot me lumps of coal;
my silly santa rope.

he napped wif me wen i wuz sad,
and hid wif me wen i wuz bad;
the best santa i ever had:
i loved you santa rope!

then abby came, i had to share
my santa rope wif her, i swear
it wuz almost too much to bear;
be careful, santa rope...

this morning wen i went outside:
an awful site! i neerly cried!
my santa's innards were outside!
no hope for santa rope.




i'll sing a mournful ivy song
tonight wen shadows get reel long,
but mourning never lasts too long
so long to santa rope.

R.I.P. Santa Rope. I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Your poem is a lovely tribute. I hope you will get a new toy soon to help ease your grief!

Sympathy and wags,
Avery

Ivy: I am sorry to hear about Santa Rope. I know how you feel 'cause I still miss sqrrl sometimes. Now that Teka is with us, I try not to get attached to stuffies. I hope Abby does not stay much longer.

If Sunshade visits, I'm sure she will tell you that Santa Rope is in peaces and is at the Santa Bridge. Good bye Santa Rope.

Gee Ivy, how come you always have these tributes... like to Pam the Pumpkin. Why do things go bye bye all the time at your house?

Abby's ear is acting weird again.

Oh, poor Santa Rope, RIP. Good to hear that you have some new ropes though. Doggie toys just don't last long enough. Mama wishes they would make more indestructable toys for us doggies. Bet that won't happen, then they wouldn't sell as many. We're not dumb doggies, we have those dog toy companies figured out, right??? hehehehe!
Luv & Wirey Hugs!
