My Popsy Is Gone!

My Popsy Sumo died yesterday!

I tried to keep watch over him.

As he walked back and forth . . .

But Popsy would plopped anywhere to nap!
Something he does not normally do.
Popsy always prefer to sleep on his pillows in his house!
So I would sit close by
to make sure I will be there if he needed anything.
And if he does I bark out to the hoomans!
And somebody would check on him
and spoon-feed him if needed!

And when somebody would tease him
I stick my tongue out at them!

Nobody can hurt my Popsy when I was near!

But when Popsy slept
he kept an eye on me
trying to watch over me
even in his weak moment!

And lately, Popsy would allow me to lead the barking
when there are intruders . . .
like he was telling me that
it is time for me to take the lead.
Popsy did not care to lead at all anymore.

He slept often which made Keeper cry!

I am the Alpha now
but I am alone!
I have nobody to lead
and there's nobody except the people
who are watching me now!

I miss my Popsy.
But Keeper said Popsy is in a better place
where my late Mumsy Pica and brother Bogart
lie waiting for him!
Goodbye, Popsy!
Be happy and pain-free wherever you are!
I will miss you
and will join you someday!

    Thank you for your lovely note on my bloggie about my beloved piggie Ketchup. I'm so sorry that your Popsy left you too.... What a big lovely guy he was, and he was lucky to have had you by his side when he most needed you. I hope he and my Ketchup piggie are having fun wherever they are!!
