August 15, 2011, painful chronic degenerative discs/arthritis
leaves behind to mourn Sniffers, Dixie, Liddy, humom Carol
If It Should Be
If it should be that I grow weak,
And pain should keep me from my sleep,
Then you must do what must be done,
For this last battle cannot be won.
You will be sad, I understand;
Don't let your grief then stay your hand.
For this day more than all the rest,
Your love for me must stand the test.
We've had so many happy years -
What is to come can hold no fears.
You'd not want me to suffer so;
The time has come, so let me go.
Take me where my needs they'll tend
And please stay with me until the end.
Hold me firm and speak to me
Until my eyes no longer see.
I know in time that you will see
The kindness that you did for me.
Although my tail its last has waved,
From pain and suffering I've been saved.
Please do not grieve - it must be you
Who had this painful thing to do.
We've been so close, we two, these years -
Don't let your heart hold back its tears.
fly free without pain and anxiety, see you at the bridge..

it all started Friday morning when I didn't get any breakfast. that should have been a tip off but somehow I missed it. Next thing I knew we were in the car - huh, we never go for a car ride this early - oh oh starting to wonder. We drove to the animal hospital, oh no, what's this about - mom turned me over to a stranger and said "see you tonight"..... next thing I knew I was drifting off to sleep.....
Woke up toothless! Well almost, I have 10 left. I don't feel so good, yucky taste in my mouth, gas in my belly, I feel very sorry for myself and I want everyone to know it !
Mom is babying me a lot and I like that part, but I want to feel better too. She fixed me a nice meal of pureed chicken and broth and it was really good, I felt a small lump in the middle as I swallowed - hmm I think she snuck some pill in there. anyways I felt better after I had eaten, and went back to sleep again. Mom keeps assuring me the first couple of days are the worst, that I will feel better soon and will be healthier without those rotten teeth.
woe is me..

Mom has changed my name to Rocky - she says it sounds more masculine !! It sounds similar to my old name, Lucky, so I respond to it just fine. Mom was never happy with the name Lucky and here's why - my last guardian named all her dogs Lucky cause she couldn't decide on a name, and my current mom didn't like that !
Rocky, Lucky, whatever - as long as you don't call me late for supper BOL !!
wonder if we'll have any "luck" getting the dogtor to change her records !! probably not, cause mom could never get them to put an "S" on the end of Sniffers name! Grrrr
