ODE TO THE MY BEST BOY

O the beauty of God's creation embodied in this blue merle four footed creature.
The flow of your gait, the symmetry of your structure;
A veritable masterpiece by the Creator of the creative!
You have defined the greatness of your kind
And have passed that on to your offspring;
Who, in turn, honored you by being champions among their peers
And agents for the perpetuation of your greatness.

O the divine blessing bestowed on you and those who knew you.
Your flashing blue eyes and happy spirit;
Your love of life and command of everyone's appreciation;
Your strength, your reproducible soundness, your agelessness;
Your desire to please, your affable character;
Intimidator to those who came against you;
Awe-inspiring to those who drew close;
The solitary choice for those with judgment;
A special among specials, confirmed over and over.
A sire among sires, proven time and again.

But to me,
Your owner and caretaker,
I, yes, I was the one truly blessed by God.
O what privilege to have been your closest friend, the one in whom you trusted.
You will always be "My Best Boy".
I will carry the memories of the time we shared together forever.

Thank you, Lord, for this creation and blessing.
(Chips, you are my Legacy. - Sue Ritter)
