English Mastiff poem and story blog
Monday, 27 March 2006

The 2002 Mastiff companion of the year was posthumously awarded to "Boadicea" owned and loved by the Shaw family of Western Australia. Here is the poem written by Jackie, Wayne, Jordan and Benjamin.

20/10/97 - 28/04/02



Your fur vacuumed from the carpet
Your drool scrubbed from the wall
Not many signs left to remind me
That a Mastiff lived here at all.

Except for this giant hole
That nothing seems to fill
And I wonder my darling Boadi
If anything ever will.

The kids maybe too young to remember
But I won’t let them forget you
The one who stood always at their side
To guard with her life if she had to.

I remember you'd bark and protect us
From things new or simply out of place
And how you'd charge to get into the car
Though getting you out was done at no great pace!

Your most beautiful nature
A gentle giant indeed
But I must let you go now
And from your pain be freed.

So it's farewell for now
Walk with comfort in the next world
The most majestic of all creatures
My darling baby girl.

And just one last thing
Before I let you go
I love you with all my heart
And I miss you Bo.

Love Always Jackie, Wayne , Jordan & Benjamin Shaw

Barbara Everett & Family,Norman
