It is hard to say goodbye
To a wonderful dog
Like Nickey Boy
That knew no other joy
Than to please us
And be with his toy.

He is gone
With his floppy ears
And shaggy coat
His puppy dog eyes full of joy
So pure and playful.

Gone is that vibrant dog
That used to wait for us
At the doorstep
Stuck his ears at the door
And wagged his tail endlessly.

He brought happiness
That is beyond measure
With a heart of gold
That has more than enough love
To go around to everybody.

He will be dearly missed
By everyone
We will always
Always remember Nickey Boy
As one in a zillion dog.
