I Held You Until


you let go of life.

The Vet got us a blanket. You laid right next to me, snuggled up, just like when we sleep at night or take a nap during the day.

I held you in my arms and whispered in your ear.

I felt your heart stop beating.

I’m sorry I had to be the one to make the decision.

I couldn’t stand to see you suffer any longer.

I hope you catch all the squirrels your little heart desires up there in Puppy Heaven.

I love you more than I can ever express.

Words are not enough.

Please forgive me.

I am so sorry but you did the right thing. You gave him a good home, love and a happy life and a kind and loving leaving...I'm sure he would wonder what you are asking forgiveness for...

He's thanking you, pally. For ending the suffering and the pain. And for the incredible life you gave him in your home. And for loving him.......all the way until the end and beyond.

I'm thinking of you today. Sending love and prayers and even a little tear. It is very, very difficult to make that decision and you did what was right and kind to your friend. We, as humans, should be so lucky.
