Ernie Dingo

Was the most amazing dog. He saved my life once when a guy was going crazy at my place He escaped over to a friend a couple of blocks away

And barked so much she put him in the car and brought him over to see what was wrong

I brought him down from the country, after I picked him up from the side of the road –

He was used to roaming - he was starving.

He used to wander to the Vet's miles away and sit at their door –

Smiling until they let him in, and called me.

We followed him once and he went up and crossed the road at the lights.

Had to build a fence. He used to visit the people at the old people's home.

One day I took him into the pet shop and a woman bent down,

Kissed him on the lips and said if he was a man she would marry him.

A guy offered my partner $300 for him then upped it to $500

Cause he wanted him for his son.

That dog was really good to me

I had a motorbike accident and he stayed with me through all the pain.

I miss him heaps.

A firefly came the other night, flew round the room like a beautiful star,

Know it was him saying goodbye.

Hope he is in a better place and out of pain.

Writing this through tears.
