Our beloved Caeli passed away on Saturday. For 15 years, she was a faithful friend and companion to our Clyde family.
She was aptly named, as Caeli (pronounced CHAY-lee) is Latin for heaven. Her sweet spirit, special smile and those big ears shall be missed by us all. But we are joyful she has been released from pain to run and jump and frolic with those who have passed before.
Those who have know the love of a good dog, who have witnessed loyalty, unconditional love and a friendship like no other, understand the place pets hold in our hearts.
Even though they leave, a small part of them remains with us. And with them, they take a piece of our hearts as well. It is a treasured exchange that transcends our time on earth to last for eternity.
Not the least hard thing to bear when
they go from us, these quiet friends,
is that they carry away with them so
many years of our lives. Yet, if they
find warmth therein, who would
begrudge them those years that they
have so guarded?
And whatever they take,
be sure they have deserved.”
