I wrote this 3 months after Brandi passed away

by Lanie Blackmon

Three months and a hole still in my heart
that no other Golden can fill.
I look all around for my Brandi girl,
The house, the yard ,are so still.

Ginger & Ally still miss Brandi too,
you can see it in their faces.
When we all hop in the truck to go,
No Brandi, just extra spaces.

My Brandi girl, how I hurt for you
God has taken you away from me.
It hasn't been the same here at home
Can't question God, so must let be.

When does this hurt, this ache for you,
finally start to go away?.
I try to be upbeat all the time,
But I Think of you everyday.

How beautiful you were and happy too,
The brightest sunshine in my heart.
You loving nature, your beautiful eyes,
and oh, how you were so smart.

I wish now we were smart enough
to beat this cancer you once had.
I wish the doctors were more smart to,
I'm just left here feeling mad.

I'm mad at the hole that's left in my heart
I want the...

Soft Whisper

August 20, 2010

Soft Whisper 

 by Lanie Blackmon

heavendog photo rainbowbridge-1.jpg 

My best friend spoke to me last night
a soft whisper in my ear.
I woke up and looked around the room,
I was startled, yet I had no fear.

My best friend said that all is fine
Rainbow bridge is so much more.
That there was so much love up there,
even a beautiful ocean shore.

There is fields and fields of green green grass
and the sky has different shades of blue.
There are flowers, mountains, trees and clouds,
everything they said it was, is true.

My best friend whispered in my ear last night
saying "Please don't cry or be sad.
That what was done, had to be done,
for me to live my life now, so be glad".

My best friend said that I did the right thing
an unselfish act on my part.
And that this pain & sadness I feel
will be gone soon from my heart.

I asked my best friend "How could this be
I miss you so much everyday.
That my heart hurts so much for you,
I wish there could of been another way".

My best friend whispered in my ear last night

August 19, 2010


My golden boy Max

by Lanie Blackmon

Wrote this for a friend of mine who lost her golden retriever also.

My guy Max was turning 12 years old
he was my handsome, loving big boy.
Max & I always did everything together,
My guy Max brought me so much Joy.

I lay sometimes in your bed at night
missing & wanting to smell your "smell".
Having to let you go was so hard Max,
if you can see me now, you could tell.

You can tell I'm sad and missing you so
but I'm trying to go on each & everyday.
Trying to live without you here,
It's so hard Max, what else can I say.

I know your love for me was unconditional
I felt it and it made me a believer.
No other dog will ever take your place,
You'll always be My Max, #1 retriever.

So now that your are at Rainbow Bridge
and we are no longer together, but apart.
Forever you'll be, Forever for me,
My Max is forever inside my heart.

So to my guy Max, Run fast and be free!!!!
I can't wait until we see each other again
I love...

I See my Mom in Me

August 19, 2010

I see my mom in me


by Lanie Blackmon

It's funny how time can make you change
your feelings and your views.
You think that when your all grown up
it's a change that's inside you.

When your younger and your growing
and want to be like no other.
But then you start maturing more
you've turned into your mother.

I never wanted to be like my mom
because I thought she was so mean.
But through these eyes, I see her in a way
in a way I have never seen.

She has such COURAGE, such STRENGTH
with such an INNER BEAUTY.
 old photos of her way back then,
 "DANG, mom was a CUTIE.

But as the years go rolling by
and life changes it's course.
Those feeling I had back then for her,
make me ashame and somewhat remorse.

But my mom has always told us kids
to be the best you can be.
she says those feelings I felt back then
let go of them and just be free..

Here I am now grown and married
and I just turned forty four.
I now found my mom inside myself
I couldn't ask for anything more.

I am so proud...

Alex, My Golden Retriever

August 19, 2010


Alex my golden retriever

005dogwagging.gif picture by Lovemy4goldens

by Lanie Blackmon

Wrote this for a friend on her goldens 10th birthday

10 years have come and gone
my Alex now 10 years old.
It was back in 1995
"There are 2 female left" I was told.

As I saw this little two pound puppy
my thoughts started to whirl.
"I'll take her" I said & while we drove home
I nicknamed her my "Tiny Girl".

Sometimes the love I feel for Alex
just takes my breath away.
Because you see my Alexandra,
made me the better person I am today.

She is my side kick, she's my best friend
the keeper of my heart.
And when we're together they are the best,
and I miss her when we're apart.

Mommy wishes you a Happy Birthday
my "tiny girl" has now grown up.
But today when I still look her,
I still see that two pound pup.

I love you my Alexandra
much love on your special day.
So Happy, Happy Birthday my friend,
forever in my heart you will stay.

Forever Gone

August 19, 2010

Forever Gone


by Lanie Blackmon

What were you doing at that very moment when the first airplane slammed into the Twin Towers in New York on September 11th, 2001??

And as fast as the airplane struck, All Americans' lives were changed FOREVER, on this day. And I mean FOREVER.

FOREVER etched in our minds are the face's of fear and pain.
The horror and terror in New York and all that destruction is something we gave no one permission to put into our minds only for it to change all of our lives....FOREVER

FOREVER GONE, are the people that were working in the Twin Tower's
who were carrying on like any other Tuesday.
So many , NOW broken up families, so many lost friends and lovers.

FOREVER GONE, is the chance to turn back the clock and not leave from where ever we are without saying a "goodbye", an "I love you" , or a "thanks", or "I'm sorry".

FOREVER GONE, are all the Companies destroyed, and people left jobless and now even homeless.

FOREVER GONE, the Twin Tower's as they were before all this horrible terrorist
attack came down on us .

By showing you my love with a toast.

A toast to 7 short wonderful years
of such loyal unconditional Love.
And I know GOD brought you into my life
and I thank God so much up above.

God wouldn't of gave me such a special girl
such a special and loving Dog.
You always cheer me when I'm sad or blue
and especially when I'm a lump on a log.

You snuggle, give kisses, and love so much
and have been one great big sister too.
So Brandi, Ally, Chance all want to say
Happy Birthday to their sister..That's YOU !!

7 Years of such happy happy times
and loving all of us so much too.
So HAPPY, HAPPY, birthday my gin gin girl
Happy Birthday Ginger and we love you.

Goldie Girl

golden photo Animated2520Golden2520Sigie.gif

by Lanie Blackmon

Wrote this for a family who also lost their golden who was my Golden's mom

Goldie was our very first pet
she was the perfect dog.
She was so good to everyoncome rain, sunshine or fog.

She bore two very special pups
named Ginger and Root beer.
The day we had to say Good bye,
was the saddest day of the year.

you see,
Goldie girl was more then a pet
she had unconditional love.
And how our family was blessed with her
was a gift from God above.

The pain our family feels today
will never go away.
We are so blessed we had Goldie Girl,
forever and to this day.

May you rest in peace our sweet
and protect us from above.
Because you will never know
how much you are missed & loved

by Lanie Blackmon

Wrote this for our daughter-in-law Mindy

when we came over the other day
Ron & I were amazed to see.
How good and loving you are to Ty
as good as a mother could be.

Your eyes just sparkle as you look at Tyson
and the smile that brightens your face.
we are so proud of you Mindy
that we just wanted to embrace.

Embracing the facts, it's plain as day
any one can truly see.
That Clay and you love Tyson so
and what great parents your turning out to be.

So we rest assure and we don't worry
and how we both said the other night.
What a beautifull loving family of three
the perfect family,thats right.

May God watch over all of you
and love you all as one.
And guide you, love you and most of all
for creating such a beautifull son.

Wrote this for a neighbors little girl who was finally

going to live with her fathe.r  I helped in the custody case.

A beautifull child named Scarlett
has really touched my heart.
I think of her so often
since she's left & we're apart.

I know that God has plans for her
for he's never let me down.
I know she's safe and well loved now,
even though she's not around.

But as the years will go rolling by
I hope she will never forget.
A neighbor loves her very much
from the moment that they first met.

So be happy gal pal Scarlett
in everything you do.
and please think of me sometimes,
and know I'm thinking of you too..
