Casey – Not available for adoption

Casey came to us when her owner had to move interstate and could not take her. Sadly, Casey has a massive mammary tumour and the cancer has spread to her lungs making her terminal. She is now #havingfunandmakingmemories until her time comes.


I loved you the moment I met you
I saw your sweet face and your very sad eyes
Before I saw the massive lump on your very small size.
I picked you up, felt the touch of your nose,
You put your head on my shoulder and snuggled in close

It was at that moment that our hearts connected
I so wanted you – to feel protected
You lay in my car and you gave a big sigh
The state you were in – made me want to cry

I chatted to you and I told you just wait
Life will get better – it’s gonna be great
We’ll sort out this mess and you’ll have lots of fun
You’ll eat lovely food
And can have a good run

When we bathed you and I saw and felt the full extent of your
Reason told me – we might be too late.
I lay awake for hours – thinking that the wait
Had very likely signed and sealed – a sad and tragic fate.

But hope springs eternal and I did dare to hope
Though tough surgery in your state – how would you cope?
With hope in my heart and prayers on my mind
We went to the vet – to see what they’d find

Some signs were good – your heart beat was steady
Blood flow was good – perhaps you were ready?
But hope was shortlived – and tests today found
The illness had already gained major ground.

Oh honey I wanted so very much more for you
I wish there was something more we could all do
But we’ll wrap our love around you –
Love will carry you along
And when we say Goodbye to you
You’ll not doubt that you belong

Your little life does matter
To us you’re so special
You exchanged a piece of your heart
With the hearts of one and all.

You’ll never be forgotten
You’ll live on in our hearts
We will talk of you – and memories mean
We’ll never be apart.

A Hope Springs family member – you will FOREVER be
And in our special garden
Your soul will frolic – Free.

For Casey
