The hardest thing any pet owner has to do, I wrote this a couple of years ago but thought it was worth putting up. It can be found on a few of my sites.

How did we get here, little one
We were suppose to be forever
But now here you lay
Slow breathing, cold table
Your heart slowing, mines breaking

 

I think about our journey together
How I grew with you
Puppy to dog, girl to woman
We were a good team, you'd listen to my dreams
You were always there, always cared
My knight in woolly fur

 

My eyes are held by your gaze, my heart by your soul
We need to say goodbye now, but I cant seem to let you go
You let out a whimper, I gasp back a sob
You tell me its okay… I know that look.. I believe you
I lean in slowly, kissing you goodbye
Time stands still as your body dies
My tears flow into your fur, my heart in agony
Goodbye my sweet boy, but this is not the end.
