A few days ago one of my favourite Facebook friends passed away. She was the most glorious Doberman Pincher called Fifi Van Endhoven. Such fun and so very special. We always shared our squirrel pictures and had a firm friendship. We will miss her very much in our lives.
So to honour her existence in this strange world of ours, in my own way I wish to celebrate it with one of my poems. I hope you all enjoy it and think of this stunning hound that was so beautiful and funny.
Loved and missed by all

An Ode to Fifi
You are one of those dogs I hold very dear
Funny and silly as you play in the grass
Sometimes hilarious when you fall on your arse.
Your sniffer so long and up to no good
Sniffing out squirrels in the mighty wood
Bounding over fallen trees
Running in meadows up to your knees.
You won't be forgotten here on Earth
We will miss your posts for what it's worth
But the sad fact is that you are gone
Let your spirit run home where you belong.
You mustn't, in your ghostly form
Let those pussies keep your bed warm
You are the boss now of hide and seek
You can scare those pussers whilst they sleep.
You can rest your head on the lap of your folkes
No more silliness, no more jokes
Give them comfort and nudge their hand
They may not see you but they understand.
You are always around in your special way
Reminding your family every day
That you were are dog with the biggest heart
Right up to the point where you did depart.
We miss you Fifi and love you loads
You made us laugh at horses and toads
You brought fun to my life each Facebook day
I shall not forget you, no never, no way.
