B.B. and the King

When Leelee passed away.

I was sad and blue.

There was nothing more I could do.


There was nothing anyone could say.

The pain was just way too much.

Losing Leelee was like losing a daughter to me.

Many people just could not see that much love.


One dog would never replace her.

I missed my the little brown hound.

She was the queen of my heart.

Then one day there was love in play,

They sent two dogs to me

From Heaven above.


Bella and Rusty, but that is dusty.

To me, BB and the king.

They made my heart sing.


BB and the king

BB and the king

What a lovely sound

I finally got my basset hound.

Rusty was a dusty name

He soon became my Fred instead.

He could always turn my frown upside down

My little Fred was a clown.

He was my very favorite hound.


He was meant to be with me.

My sweet little brown basset hound.

I found a new love, but he did not stay.

Now, he is in Heaven above.


I sing BB and the King

BB and the king

I sure do love BB

But I miss the king.


He is in Heaven with Angel wings.

My heart still sings for my little brown king.

  1. I am so sorry you had to go through that, no one should have to. I had to put Nico down last year, the vet made a house call, but it was no easier to be with him as he passed.
    My condolences.
