On July 3rd, Bettie Langrall's senior German Shepherd Aztec took his last breath... he was a dear boy, who was blind and spent the first couple of years of life locked in a dark shed... He is also the senior Shepherd pictured in our logo... we all share Bettie's loss and know that dear Azzie is now seeing and playing with his lost friends!
Bettie says that Aztec had a "serene sweetness and nobility". He was 13 years, 3 months old. Bettie was blessed to have Aztec in her life for 11 years.
I See You in My Heart
by Sherrill Wardrip
I cannot see you Mommy, when you cuddle me so near.
And yet I know you love me, it's in the words I hear.
I cannot see you Daddy, when you hold me by your side
But still I know you love me when you tell me so with pride.
I cannot see to run and play out in the sun so bright
For here inside my tiny head it's always dark as night.
I cannot see the treats you give when I am extra good
But I can wag my tail in Thanks just like a good dog should.
"She cannot see. The dogs no good" is what some folks might say
"She can't be trained, she'll never learn She must be put away."
But not you, Mom and Daddy You know that it's alright
Because I love you just as much as any dog with sight.
You took me in, you gave me love and we will never part
Because I'm blind with just my eyes, I see you in my heart.
