You have a special place Dear Lord
  that I know you'll always keep
A special place reserved for dogs
  when they quietly fall asleep
With large and airy kennels
  and a yard for hiding bones
With maybe a little babbling creek
  that chatters over stones.
With wide green fields and flowers
  for those who never knew
about running freely under
  Your sky of perfect blue.
Lord,I know You keep this Special Place
  And so to you I Pray,
For one Special Rottweiler
  Who quietly died today
She was full of strength & love
  and so very, very wise.
The puppy look she once had
  Had long since left her eyes.
She is dearly missed my Lord
  By a very good friend of mine.
She went to join her ancestors
  To Your land that is Devine
So, speak to Crimmy softly please
  And give her a warm hello.
She's a Special gift to you Dear Lord
  From Brenda, who loved her so.
