    I know this is for boxers but my sister wrote this peom for me,when my horse died...

    You once were here
    But now your gone
    The friendship we had
    Will forever live on

    In my heart you will remain
    The best an equine friend can be
    And because of that special love
    Navajo,I hereby set you free

    Free from this body of yours
    Riddled with disease and pain
    Free from this way of life
    That would have left you unhappy and lame

    Now you can finish out eternity
    Painlessly having fun
    Thundering across the sky at night
    Still bucking at a run

    That fire in your eyes can continue to burn
    Full of endless love and joy
    The way I'll always remember them
    My favorite mischievious boy

    Your passing was hard for me to take
    But in my heart I know it's for the best
    And I know your not alone up there
    So be sure to give my love to all the rest

    For Leta's up there waiting
    With Kodi standing by
    To take you to your new home
    Where greener pasture lie

    I know I'll never replace you
    You were,one of a kind
    And the friendship that we shared
    Is so very hard to find

    You will remain in my heart
    Until my time here ends
    And that is when we shall reunite
    Nelson's Prince Navajo-My BestFriend

    This is so beautiful, and so special coming from your sister, it must mean a lot to you. Thank you for sharing with us. I am so sorry you lost your beloved friend, Navajo. I know how sad your life is without him, I just lost my Boxer boy, Grunt. I hope they are frolicking about together. Grunt often pranced like a horse.

    This made me smile after the poem - which was beautiful by the way. Billy often prances like a horse also.
