Ruosteposken Marilyn

"Mari"

"Mari" was very badly treated and beaten by her former owner. The police rescued her to the animal shelter from where we got her.

We had to let her go before her time was due as the old injuries began to affect strongly on the quality of her life.

We greatly miss this noble dog who taught us much about trust and friendship.

"Pablo" had excellent character, high drives & sociability and he was very keen to do anything... just as long as it was with me.

Some setbacks on his health (osteoarthrosis, endocardiosis (Mitral Valve Disease) diagnosed at 4½ years and torn tendon) made us "take it easy".

Kriegerhof D-litter


"Some are like water, some are like the heat
Some are a melody and some are the beat
Sooner or later they all will be gone
why don't they stay young

It's so hard to get old without a cause
I don't want to perish like a fleeing horse
Youth's like diamonds in the sun
and diamonds are forever

So many adventures couldn't happen today
So many songs we forgot to play
So many dreams swinging out of the blue
We let them come true

Forever young, I want to be forever young......"
(Alphaville; Forever Young)

sire: Caesand's Tops Smile
dam: Marnellin Palma de Marina


And now, the end is near;
And so I face the final curtain.
My friend, Ill say it clear,
Ill state my case, of which Im certain.

Ive lived a life thats full.
Ive traveled each and evry highway;
And more, much more than this,
I did it my way.

Regrets, Ive had a few;
But then again, too few to mention.
I did what I had to do
And saw it through without exemption.

I planned each charted course;
Each careful step along the byway,
But more, much more than this,
I did it my way.

Yes, there were times, Im sure you knew
When I bit off more than I could chew.
But through it all, when there was doubt,
I ate it up and spit it out.
I faced it all and I stood tall;
And did it my way.

Ive loved, Ive laughed and cried.
Ive had my fill; my share of losing.
And now, as tears subside,
I find it all so amusing.

To think I did all that;
And may I say - not in a shy way,
No, oh no not me,
I did it my way.

-Frank Sinatra, My Way-

Ghia's own page


I'll be loving you always
with a love that's true, always
When the thing you've planned
needs my helping hand,
I will understand, always, always

Days may not be fair, always
Yeah but that's when I'll be there, always
Not for just an hour,
Not for just a day,
Not for just a year, but always.

I said that I'll be loving you, always
with a love that's true, always.
When the thing you've planned
needs my helping hand,
I will, I will understand, always, always

Jos sua ei ois ollut
niin olisin keksinyt sut
ois susta samanlainen tullut
mitään en ois muuttanut

ohikulkijat luulee
minun seinille puhuvan
tyhjyyteen he sanovan mun kuulee
sua aina rakastan

(...)

kiitos
kun olit totta hetken
nyt mun täytyy tästä jatkaa
vierelläni teet loppuretken
vaikka se olis kuvitelmaa

Jos niin käy
että minusta tulee hauras ja heikko
ja kivut häiritsevät untani
niin sinun on tehtävä
mitä on tehtävä
sillä viimeistä matkaa
ei kukaan ole estävä
sinä tulet surulliseksi
-minä ymmärrän
älä anna surusi estää sinua
sillä tänä päivänä enemmän
kuin koskaan ennen
rakkautesi ja ystävyytesi punnitaan
Meillä on ollut niin
monta hyvää vuotta
tulevaa ei kannata surra
et haluaisi minun kärsivän
kun aika koittaa,
anna minun mennä...
Vie minut sinne missä
he auttavat minua
mutta pysy luonani loppuun
pidä minua lujasti ja
puhu minulle
kunnes silmäni ovat sulkeutuneet
Tiedän että aikanaan
sinäkin huomaat sen olevan ystävyyttä
jota minulle osoitat
vaikka häntäni on viimeisen
kerran heilahtanut
niin kivulta ja kärsimykseltä
olen säästynyt
Älä sure sitä että
sen täytyy olla sinä
jonka täytyy tehdä päätös
olemme olleet niin läheisiä
- me kaksi näinä vuosina
älä anna turhaan sydämesi itkeä.

4.8.2005-25.9.2014 (arrythmia due to GVS - gastric volvulus syndrome - on the operating table at vet clinic)

My heart will stay here
when it’s time for me to leave.
The autumn wind just plays its’ song
like it would know everything.
My heart will stay here forever
in the place I lived.
Tough I can only stay here
until it’s the last night of summer.
When I am gone then You’ll only hear
the whispering waves at the shore.
If You believe more than You think
then I will greet You in it.
Once again You see the summer and
hear the songs of the birds.
If your senses are open even for a moment
then You’ll understand my message in it.
My heart will stay here
it will always be near You.
You’ll reach it if You want
even if there weren’t any songs left on earth.
My heart will stay here
forever in the place I lived.
