Default In memory of the most loved Sassy...

I just got home from the vets office. I had to put Sassy down. After 14 1/2 years of faithful love from her, she is now gone forever.

I have never had to do this before, but it makes me think. With all the dogs that I have, there too will come a day for each of them like today for Sassy. And this makes me regret ever owning a dog.Any dog.

Anyway, a long time ago when I was contemplating putting Daizy down due to her disability, someone here posted a poem, something about a dog waiting for me, and playing with a bone...I cant remember it for the life of me, but would really apreciate it if someone knows it to please post it, as I would like to put it on her grave.

Thank you. And please pray that this gets easier..

I'm so, so sorry. I too think a lot about the fact that our pets just aren't going to live forever and it makes me sad. But you have to remember all the joy and love that Sassy brought you and remember that her time here was good. I'll be thinking about you. (((hugs)))

My thoughts are with you. Losing one is always so hard...

Run free Sassy!

So sorry for your loss. Our dogs are our babies and we can only hang onto the great memories and appreciate how meaningful they are to us.

I don't think this is the poem you were referring to, but I think it's neat:

My little bully passed away, no more to breathe a sound.
I held him for the last time, then entombed him in the ground.
Day and night I wept so much, in tears I thought I'd drown.
I searched my soul for comfort, but no peace therein was found.

In great despair, I hit my knees and then began to pray.
"Father will I ever see, my dog again someday?"
I raised my eyes and saw an angel standing near a gate.
I sensed an inner peace I'd never felt before that day.

The angel smiled and said to me, "Oh man of little faith!
God sees every bird that falls; He knows your bully's fate.
I have met your little dog, I saw him pass my way.
Your precious dog is still alive; he just walked through this gate.

Paradise is lovelier than you can comprehend.
No pain or grief, no tears or fears, and life will have no end.
God gave to man His only Son, to cover all his sins.
So why would God withhold from you, your pure and loving friend?***8221;

The angel took me by the hand and said, "Now come with me.
A glimpse of paradise I'll give, to you so you can see."
Through the gate and o'er the Rainbow Bridge we did proceed.
Through green valleys filled with flowers, rolling hills and trees.

***8220;Wow, so this is paradise!***8221; The place was filled with joy.
I saw my bully playing there, with dogs and cats and toys.
He also had some doggie treats, and food that he enjoyed.
He'd made a lot of new friends there, including girls and boys.

Then I saw a child come near, and hug my little mate.
She said to him, "I love you so," and kissed him on the face.
The angel said, "The child just crossed the Rainbow Bridge today.
Now she needs a little friend, to love and help her play.

God***8217;s love for her would be enough, in that make no mistake.
But in His love, He knew full well, the child would want a mate.
This is why God called your dog unto this splendid place.
God***8217;s entrusted her with him, ***8216;til you pass through the gate."

I pleaded, ***8220;May I hug them both?!***8221; The angel answered, ***8220;No!
You***8217;d violate a sacred site, and now it***8217;s time to go.***8221;
He led me back across the Bridge and through the gate to home.
He left me there with new-found hope and peace within my soul.

If someone ever asks what happens to a dog that dies,
Just give a gentle smile of joy and look them in the eye.
Take their hand and comfort them and tell them not to cry.
For dogs don***8217;t die, they simply cross a bridge to paradise.

-Dan Atcheson

Unfortunately when we give our hearts to our dogs , we will at some time have to say goodbye . It's never easy , but we have to remember them in our hearts and have happy memories . You can imagine how many painful goodbyes I've had to say at 74 .! Which is more painful ?? Putting them to rest or never have known the love they gave us !!! R.I.P. dear Sassy , and Mach1, hug those who are still with you ((( Hugs )))

"Help Me Make the Decision"
From: Newspaper-Dear Abby
Unknown Author

If it should be that I grow weak
And pain should keep me from my sleep,
Then you must do what must be done,
For this last battle cannot be won.

You will be sad, I understand.
Don't let your grief then stay your hand.
For this day, more than all the rest,
Your love for me must stand the test.

We've had so many happy years.
What is to come can hold no fears.
You'd not want me to suffer so;
The time has come -- please let me go.

Take me where my needs they'll tend,
And please stay with me till the end.
Hold me firm and speak to me,
Until my eyes no longer see.

I know in time that you will see
The kindness that you did for me.
Although my tail its last has waved,
From pain and suffering I've been saved.

Please do not grieve -- it must be you
Who had this painful thing to do.
We've been so close, we two, these years;
Don't let your heart hold back its tears.


I know that is not the one. But it gives me comfort.
MBG

Is this the one?

To My Master
I explained to St. Peter,
I'd rather stay here,
Outside the Pearly Gate.
I won't be a nuisance,
I won't even bark,
I'll be very patient and wait.
I'll be here chewing on a celestial bone,
No matter how long you may be.
I'd miss you so much, if I went in alone,
It wouldn't be Heaven for me...
