Below is a poem a furpal shared. We are posting it here so other furpals may see it. While, I left this world in Momma's arms...Very quickly and very unexpected. Major shock for Momma.(I had a major stroke) I was Momma's only fur to arrive at the bridge this way. Her other precious furs had cancer or kidney failure. They were in pain and suffering. They told her, when it was time for her to let go. She didn't want too ... It would have been selfish to have done anything else. A piece of Momma's heart has went with each and everyone of us. We have all found each other at the bridge. We wait for the day that Momma will join us. Susie(toy eskimo spitz),Tootsie(mini.schnauzer),Princess(cocker spaniel), Teddy(llasha apso) and me of course, Foxie(wired hair fox terrier). Everyone of us lived a very,very long life... We were loved,spoiled,and very happy. We enriched Momma's life. Made her a better human being. Taught her to love more deeply....
There isn't a day, that comes and goes that Momma doesn't think about each and everyone of us....She Thanks God, that He has so richly Blessed her life with all us puppers...
MAKING THAT FINAL DECISION TO SAY GOOD-BYE
You're giving me a special gift,
So sorrowfully endowed,
And through these last few cherished days,
Your courage makes me proud.
But really, love is knowing
When your best friend is in pain,
And understanding earthly acts
Will only be in vain.
So looking deep into your eyes,
Beyond, into your soul,
I see in you the magic, that will
Once more make me whole.
The strength that you possess,
Is why I look to you today,
To do this thing that must be done,
For it's the only way.
That strength is why I've followed you,
And chose you as my friend,
And why I've loved you all these years...
My partner till the end.
Please, understand just what this gift
You're giving, means to me,
It gives me back the strength I've lost,
And all my dignity.
You take a stand on my behalf,
For that is what friends do.
And know that what you do is right,
For I believe it too.
So one last time, I breathe your scent,
And through your hand I feel,
The courage that's within you,
To now grant me this appeal.
Cut the leash that holds me here,
Dear friend, and let me run,
Once more a strong and steady dog,
My pain and struggle done.
And don't despair my passing,
For I won't be far away,
Forever here, within your heart,
And memory I'll stay.
I'll be there watching over you,
Your ever faithful friend,
And in your memories I'll run,
... a young dog once again.
