My Tail of Devotion for Brandon (1985-2000)

Dear Brandon.

Today is your sixth year anniversary at the Rainbow Bridge. The memory of the day we said goodbye to each other six years ago is STILL fresh in my mind. Not a day has gone by that you don't cross my mind at some point of each day.

I still live with the guilt of having to make the decision of putting you to sleep. My heart broke into a million pieces on the evening of August 6, 2000. I hope you understand that I did what I knew had to be done, so that you wouldn't suffer anymore. When your suffering ended.....mine began.

I think of you everyday, but THREE days stick out in my memory most of all:

1) The first day I laid eyes on you. You were such a cute little ball of fur. I just had to have you!!

2) The day I was rocking you and watching you sleep. I suddenly noticed how you had aged through the years and your muzzle had turned white around the edges. I promised you that night that when the day came for us to say "goodbye", I would be at your side.

3) The day I knew that our time together had come to an end and it was time to say "goodbye". That was the saddest time in my life and I still cry even though it's been years. I stayed by your side, just as I promised you I would. I don't know if you know it, but I held you and talked softly to you for almost a half hour after I felt your heart stop beating. My heart was breaking and I cried a sea of tears.

I love you Brandon. You'll always be my "baby boy" and a piece of my heart will always and forever belong to YOU.
