Biscuit Shook
World's Greatest Dog
July 1, 1996 - January 3, 2011

Sorrow fills a barren space;

you close your eyes and see my face

and think of times I made you laugh,
the love we shared, the bond we had, 

the special way I needed you - 

the friendship shared by just we two.
The day's too quiet, the world seems older,

the wind blows now a little colder.

You gaze into the empty air

and look for me, but I'm not there...
- by Caro Schubert-James -

"The one best place to bury a good 
dog is in the heart of his master."
Ben Hur Lampman ---
from the Portland Oregonian Sept. 11, 1925


  1. Sorry to hear about your dog, Laura:(

  2. So sorry, Laura! I have definitely been there! It is tough...

  3. I'm so sorry to hear about your loss. I actually lost a dog that looks very similar to Biscuit last Christmas eve. I was actually at the Christmas eve service bawling my eyes out last year. She was also 15 years old. They are truley a huge part of the family and it is so sad to see them go. I bet Biscuit is up in Heaven playing with my little Chevy and they are having a grand time.
