There are lots of them if you google 'pet death poems' I like this one in particular"
It came to me that every time I lose a dog they take a little piece of my heart with them
and every new dog who comes into my life gifts me with a piece of their heart.
If I live long enough, all of the components of my heart will be dog and I will become as generous and as loving as they are."

How about this one then?

Pawprints Left By You
Author Unknown

You no longer greet me,
As I walk through the door.
You're not there to make me smile,
To make me laugh anymore.
Life seems quiet without you,
You were far more than a pet.
You were a family member, a friend
. . . a loving soul I'll never forget.
It will take time to heal -
For the silence to go away.
I still listen for you,
And miss you every day.
You were such a great companion,
Constant, loyal and true.
My heart will always wear,
the pawprints left by you.
