It is called the Rainbow Bridge because of its many colours.
In loving memory of our Bounce.
In my arms I carried her home
In my arms I let her go…..
Bounce was our proverbial 'clown in a dog suit'. She arrived at our home at the age of 10 weeks.....and what a surprise she was! She was my first bull terrier! At the time part our household consisted of two cats (aged 10 years and 5 years) and these two 'raised' Bounce! She simply loved them. Initially Bounce thought that Blade, the older cat, was her mother and many times tried to 'suckle' her....Blade, very politely, with a claw retracted paw, reassured her that this was not so! Taz, our ginger tom, was her 'playmate'! The two of them would go careening up and down the passage creating havoc that only a bully and a cat can create. When Taz had had enough of Bounce's attention he would calmly jump up onto the dining room table and ignore her.
She has the most mischievous eyes I have ever seen,
A face full of smiles Letting you know she is queen.
At a jaunty stride Off she goes,
Nothing can hide From that inquisitive nose.
The ginger tom Is such great fun
At a leaping run, To pounce upon
Tugging an ear or two
Is even better
The tail is temping too
If only he would let her.
Digging in the garden Another favourite pastime,
With ne’er a ‘beg pardon
For all the dirt and grime.
Climbing onto tables
To see what’s on top,
Licking stolen soup ladles,
Running off with socks.
I can only but giggle
When there’s a need to chastise
As she squirms with a wiggle
Showing off her feminine wiles.
With her every ounce
She has made my life merrier
My dog, ‘Bounce’,
My Bull Terrier.
