Memorial Pipke 2010/2011/2012

Memorial Pipke 2012

Ode to Pipke

The years have been and gone
Forever since you left my side, but oh!
The last days – it really broke my heart.
The pain was so hard to bear.
But you seemed ready, all set to go
To another life – elsewhere.

I must go on, my dear, dear girl

But from day to day, you'll see.
The love we shared, the fun we had
Will be cherished forever – deep in me

So thanks again, my faithful girl
I'll try not to be sad
But treasure the walks, the games, the love
And the brilliant time we had.

See under.
 One of our first walks. Here she is only ten days old!

May 25, 1995 - September 14, 2009

You made my life worth living!

PS: On this link you can find all I wrote about Pipke and also many pictures and cheerful film pictures of the happy times we had together.
On this link I describe the last part of her life.
You best start to read there on the earliest date.


Memorial Pipke 2011

To my dear Pipke

In My Heart
I thought of you with love today, but that's nothing new.

I thought about you yesterday, and days before that too.

I think of you in silence, I often speak your name.

Now all I have is memories, and your pictures in a frame.

Your memory is my keepsake, with which I’ll never part.

God has you in his keeping.

I have you in my heart.

May 25, 1995 – September 14, 2009.

I do not need a special day to bring you to my mind.

The days I do not think of you are very hard to find.

Each morning when I awake I know that you are gone.

And no one knows the heartache as I try to carry on.

My heart still ache with sadness and secret tears still flow.

What it meant to lose you --- no one will ever know.

My thoughts are always with you, your place no one can fill.

In life I loved you dearly; in death I love you still.

For always

Your Oma

PS: I've added this instrumental music (my best friend) in particular because it has such a very sensitive meaning for me. They played this song on the car radio while we drove back home after our visit to the vet.  Then she became ill (in 2000) for the first time in her life. We had visited the vet already 14 days and she still wasn't getting better. We thought at that moment that we would loose her.
I will never forget how desperate I felt then.
It still makes me very emotional when I hear it.
Since then I call this "Pipke's song".


  1. That is a very dear, sweet, heartfelt poem.

    I hope you are doing well.

    Take care.


  2. Considering the circumstances I'm doing well Ter-o-fla. Of course there will always be that void that Pipke left behind but I cherich her memory! Thanks for your kind comment. It comforts me to know that people still visit this blog from time to time!
    Take care too!
    Big hug

  3. this is such a sweet poem, don't be sad she is always with you, in peace, won't have any pain again, you just can't see her she'll always be with you

  4. Thanks for your kind comment Ambur.
    One must experience the love of an animal to know what it means to loose it. If you want to see Pipke on Youtube, this is her new channel:

    Enjoy the images!

  5. i saw pipke on youtube months ago, i've lost my very dear duck n i know how you feel, the gap they leave behind can never be filled by anything else, but we must always remember them happily so fran gather yourself for pipke

  6. "So fran gather yourself for pipke!" That's what i'm doing Ambur!
    The fact that i'm making plans to go further with my blogs proofs it!
    Thanks for your encouragement!:)
