The Half Life of Connor Owen by Janine M. Donoho

Connor Owen, whippet warrior pup

You might think we’d be better at this—

Goodbye to a beloved.

Gone our foxy rodent hunter—

Brilliant gaze, nimble mind, sleek beauty.

Torn from us too young,

His lively heart reduced

To two chambers

From the necessary three.Connor & Nina

Reckless the breeder

Of this sublime hound—

She who chose form

Over substance.

Goodbye, beloved hound,

Strong-willed young fighter,

Who battled the inevitable

Too long.

You might have thought

We’d be better at this.

Panting whippet

Connor Owen, beloved whippet – January 23, 2006 – December 30, 2013

Where his body rests beside Ziggy the greyt & Mandy the whippet
