Memorial for Trixie the Rottweiler

Photo of Trixie Red Shirt SmilingAlthough I find it hard to let my patients pass on to their next stage of being, it is the inevitable life conclusion regardless of your species.

Recently, a favorite acupuncture patient of mine, Trixie, departed this world but her owner fondly commemorates her with indelible images and the following poetic words.

She is our magic Trix…Photo of Trixie Birthday Cake

Smile, though your heart is aching
Smile, even though it's breaking
When there are clouds in the sky, you'll get by

If you smile through your fear and sorrow

Smile and maybe tomorrow
You'll see the sun come shining through for you
Light up your face with gladness

Hide every trace of sadness
Although a tear may be ever so near
That's the time you must keep on trying

Smile, what's the use of crying
You'll find that life is still worthwhile
If you’ll just smile

(Lyrics by John Turner & Geoffrey Parsons ~Music by Charlie Chaplin)

We miss you Trixie, but lovable face and pleasant demeanor will live forever.
