My-own-man, proud hound to the core
Our runner supreme, our "sparkle motion"
Still, "Foxweiler (Rotthound?)," whichever - an uncle sure
From accepting brother and constant friend of devotion
Our gratitude for fourteen beyond special years
And for making our lives so much more complete
Of separation, yet sweet remembrance, the tears
'Til in the Creator together, and family joy replete.
We love you and miss you, our dear boy, until we meet again.
