RIP Chevy

How can I EVER say thank you enough for the LOVE you’ve sent about the loss of our dog Chevy?!

He was our 1st rescue.  He rescued us.   He was about 14 14238242_10153823973455205_8775270185318815734_nyears old.  He was also the alpha dog of our pack.

I’d always dreamed of him passing quietly in his sleep at home.  That’s not how it went down.

Chevy (last week) started to fall down, often.  He seemed to lose the ability to use his back legs.  It was heartbreaking.  Because his mind outlasted his body.  He was still 100% himself.  Just broken physically.  We took him to our vet – to get her advice, even though we knew his end was near.  We did have him put to sleep. L  It was a much more peaceful and positive (for him) experience than I expected.   He needed the relief, and rest.

To honor him, I will ALWAYS adopt, ALWAYS foster.  Dogs are family!  Thank YOU for the love.

THE LAST BATTLE

If it should be that I grow frail and weak
And pain should keep me from my sleep,
Then will you do what must be done,
For this–the last battle–can’t be won.
You will be sad I understand
But don’t let grief then stay your hand,
For on this day, more than rest,
Your love and friendship must stand the test.
We have had so many happy years,
You wouldn’t want me to suffer..so
When the time comes, please let me go.
Take me where to my needs they will tend,
Only, stay with me till the end
And hold me firm and speak to me
Until my eyes no longer see.
I know in time you will agree
It is a kindness you do to me.
Although my tail it’s last has waved,
From pain and suffering I have been saved.
Don’t grieve that it must be you
Who has to decide this thing to do;
We’ve been so close– we two– these years,
Don’t let your heart hold any tears.
