Goodbye Dear One: On Euthanizing a Pet

Goodbye Dear One

How old am I?

I just couldn't say,

I lived in the moment,

For each day to day.

class=aligncenter

All I've known

Is chase, and play

Guarding you, to

Do as you say.

class=aligncenter

It's been so great

to be in your Pack

Included in all things,

We each "got our backs"

class=aligncenter

But then life got harder

I gladly endured,

For the love of my family

It kept my heart moored.

class=aligncenter

Then like a pen,

I ran out of ink,

It got harder to move

Even harder to think.

class=aligncenter

And when it got bad

My people took note;

"We should send him to Heaven"

Came the merciful vote.

class=aligncenter

So, again I'll stand tall,

with The Dog's endless spirit

To serve as a new pup,

The one who endears it.
