... that our lives will be blessed with seeing, hearing, and touching our beautiful Nugget. Never again will I be able to gaze into the sparkling layers of those imploring brown eyes that I swear were like marbles with swirls of magical color. I forced myself to memorize those eyes. Words cannot describe how different they were compared to my other babies, and to any other human's for that matter. I will never again feel his sweet golden curls that lined his spine showing hints of red nor feel the soft velvet gold that graced the top of his head or the thick mass of tangled fur along his chest that often developed into a matted mess. He didn't bark much or whine. He was the patriarc of the pack though he was patient and good. He never attacked a stray who wandered on the farm allowing Sammy and Coty to join the family though they knew he ruled. He got so excited and happy seeing Mama and Daddy at the door and at meal time he whirled in dizzying tight circles. He so loved his nightly pettings from his Daddy and his brushings from Mama that should there be a pause from a tired human hand, his persistant paw would offer a firm reminder to continue. In his younger days, he watched my every move while I went down to the barn for the nightly feed, guarding and waiting for my return. Words cannot describe the perennial ache in my heart with the realization that he is gone. I loved my boy, I love him still though he is gone for good, gone on March 13th 2012.
He loved people, and was so gentle with children. Everyone loved him, even his stern old Grandfather. :) I often wonder if my daddy and Nugget see eachother in heaven?
Rest in peace my dear Nugget. I do believe we will see eachother again when we shed our earthly bodies and our souls rise to a new level hopefully Heaven where we will be joined once again. Please be there to greet me my dear boy when it is my time to go, I want to see your beautiful face and be surrounded by your undying love. I will love you forever my boy, my Nugget.
