For 16 years he has been a joy and a trial, a guardian and an active companion.
For 16 years we have done our best to give him good care and love. He gave more than he got.
Today it was time...you don't need to know details, just to know it was HARD!
|He left his 2nd breakfast and treat uneaten, but the first was consumed eagerly.|
|His empty pillow says it all.|
His heart still beats
He breathes and eats
His sound and sight are gone
His nose works well
His legs still move, are sound
A snarl comes forth when awakened
His disorientation has blossomed
He has forgotten where to do his job
Untrained - deranged - undone - sob
It may be time……..
