FEED ME, GIVE ME WATER, AND CARE FOR ME, AND WHEN THE DAY'S WORK IS DONE, GIVE ME SHELTER, A CLEAN BED AND A WIDE STALL. TALK TO ME. BE GOOD TO ME AND I WILL SERVE YOU CHEERFULLY AND LOVE YOU. AND, AT THE END, DEAR FRIEND, DON'T LET ME GO HUNGRY OR FREEZE AND DON'T SELL ME, BUT RATHER BE MERCIFUL AND TAKE CARE OF ME, BY LETTING ME RUN AND ENJOY A WARM PASTURE. LET ME REQUEST THIS OF YOU AND PLEASE DON'T REGARD IT AS DISRESPECTFUL IF I ASK IT IN THE NAME OF HIM WHO WAS BORN IN A STABLE LIKE ME.

TELL WE MEET AGAIN,   OUR FRIENDS, WE LOVE YOU,

I'LL LEND YOU FOR A LITTLE WHILE, MY GRANDEST FOAL, HE SAID. FOR YOU TO LOVE WHILE SHE'S ALIVE AND MOURN FOR WHEN SHE'S DEAD. IT MAY BE ONE OR TWENTY YEARS, OR DAYS OR MONTHS, YOU SEE. BUT, WILL YOU, TILL I TAKE HER BACK, TAKE CARE OF HER FOR ME? SHE'LL BRING HER CHARMS TO GLADDEN YOU, AND SHOULD HER STAY BE BRIEF, YOU'LL HAVE TREASURED MEMORIES, AS SOLACE FOR YOUR GRIEF. I CANNOT PROMISE SHE WILL STAY, SINCE ALL FROM EARTH RETURN. BUT, THERE ARE LESSONS TAUGHT ON EARTH, I WANT THIS FOAL TO LEARN. I'VE LOOKED THE WIDE WORLD OVER, IN MY SEARCH FOR TEACHERS TRUE. AND FROM THE THRONGS THAT CROWD LIFE'S LANES, WITH TRUST I HAVE SELECTED YOU. NOW WILL YOU GIVE HER YOUR TOTAL LOVE? NOR THINK THE LABOR VAIN, NOR HATE ME WHEN I COME, TO TAKE HER BACK AGAIN? I KNOW YOU'LL GIVE HER TENDERNESS, AND LOVE WILL BLOOM EACH DAY. AND FOR THE HAPPINESS YOU'VE KNOWN, FOREVER GRATEFUL STAY. BUT SHOULD I COME AND CALL FOR HER, MUCH SOONER THAN YOU'D PLANNED, YOU'LL BRAVE THE BITTER GRIEF THAT COMES, AND SOMEDAY YOU'LL UNDERSTAND. FOR THOUGH I'LL CALL HER HOME TO ME, THIS PROMISE TO YOU I DO MAKE, FOR ALL THE LOVE AND CARE YOU GAVE, SHE'LL WAIT FOR YOU, INSIDE HEAVEN'S GATE.

R.I.P Gage , my Friend.
I know that you must miss me,
By the tears rolling down your face.
But believe me when I tell you that,
I'm in a very good place.

There are meadows here to run in,
And plenty of rabbits to chase.
There are other dogs to play with,
To frolic with and race.

So please don't worry about me,
My spirit feels light as can be.
There's no more pain to plague me,
I'm young again and free.

And I'll be watching over you still,
of that you can be sure.
I'm your canine guardian angel,
And my love for you remains pure.
