Honey Girl

Honey Girl.
My mom's dog.
Rescued from the pound.
Ten years in her second life.

I miss her.
I love her so.
She would lay so still while
I pet her and whispered my woes into her ear.

Dying so quiet and nobly.
She laid next to me and I pet her,
whispering in her ear how much I love her.

Honey Girl died.
One last joyous run to meet
my mom at the back door.
She died mid stride
landing on the soft grass
right by the morning glories.


  1. May you be safe, may you be happy, may you be well, Honey Girl, wherever you are. And may you be safe, happy, and well, too, Jenny Stevning.

  2. hello jenn, my dad flew away roughly a year ago and not very long after so did "his" dog. it was tough for my mum. i miss them both for very different reasons but i know deeply that they are as dan wishes - safe, happy, well. that matters to me a lot. even more than wishing they were still here. which i often do.
    i'm glad for honey girl that she knew you both. very glad. have a peaceful day. steven

  3. have such sweet followers. Maybe we could let them join the Honey Girl Fan Club. Thanks, Dan and Steven!

  4. Thank you, Dan and Steven. And thank you, Mom...ummm...I mean Anonymous.
    Yes. Safe, happy and well. Love!

  5. dear, honey girl. may you be at peace. your beautiful face shows such tenderness (i love how honest dogs faces are) and that you had a lovely life with your family. Jenny, my thoughts are with you and your Mom
