~ Baby's Tribute ~
January 29, 1992 - November 20, 2006
By Darren M. Grine
You were there when I was born
A little ball of whippet, Im surely going to adorn
I know I was a handful at the start
But you were grateful with all your heart
You cared for me and always gave me a treat
Now Im so thankful and loyal no matter what the feat
I look forward to seeing you day after day
Licking your face is how I appreciate my stay
We spend so much time together
Our bond is strong as such, we will always weather
Even though I show some wear and tear
Dont worry, my spirit is young and I will forever care
Our wonderful times, I will honorably treasure
The memories we share, I will always take pleasure

~ Poem Dedication ~
I wrote and dedicated this poem to my good friend Susan Hayes and for her whippet Baby.
Baby's mother, Char had a litter of seven whippet puppies and Baby happen to be the smallest and sickest.
He was born with a cleft palate and nobody expected him to survive. He also developed pneumonia shortly
after he was born. Since he was unable to nurse from Char because of the cleft palate, Susan had to feed
him with a little baby bottle and she had done that for several months until he was able to learn how to eat
on his own. Because Susan raised him, the everlasting bond between them became very strong. Baby never really
thought of himself as a dog or whippet, he was incredibly sweet tempered, and rarely barked. baby had slept on
the bed with Susan almost every night and day during his life. The only exceptions were only when susan went
out of town on occasional trips. Baby will be deeply missed by susan, her family, and all of her friends.
