Ch. Shomberg's Wrapped In Sable

Canning's Gamble von Shomberg CDX, CGC  ("Pooh")
our beautiful "Pooh Bear" 
June 21, 1986 - July 5, 2003

"Rest well dear Pooh, until we all meet again."

And for our dearest Leesy, whose heart is broken. She has made the ultimate sacrifice in allowing her very special boy to go back to his creator where he surely waits for her. He was so special ... just as Leesy is.
With our love,
Sharon & Steve
and the "family" of SHOMBERG GSPs

Forever will I miss you now
Though we both came to know
The quiet love and years we've shared
Would somehow surely slow 

For me it was a lifetime
For you, not nearly so
But in the quiet of your arms
You bid me, bid me ... "go"

My frail and weary body
Has traveled this last time
This journey was a trip of love
And you have made it mine

Remember how I've made you laugh
The friends you met through me
And do not think that I am gone
For I will wait for thee

I'm resting now in Heaven's grass
Where gentle breezes blow
I've laid within the lap of God
I feel His love , you know

Forever's really just a space
A place for me to wait
Until I see your face again 
As you walk through the "Gate"

I'll be the one who's running
You'll know......you'll see it's me
I'll watch until your day has come
And through your tears you'll see
That you and I will share God's gift
... of all eternity.
