Miss Lily

<< < (10/12) > >>


I understand your pain, having just gone through this about a month back.  As tough as tomorrow will be, know you are showing the greatest sign of love by putting Miss Lily's needs first.  It shows how wonderful a companion you have been to her.  However, I know how hard this time is right now.  You will both be in my thoughts.

so sorry to hear. I can't imagine.

Dear Wolfie,

As a fellow pet lover, I empathize with your courage to do what is best for Lily.

As a tribute to you both, I offer the following:

By Beth Norman Harris

Treat me kindly, my beloved master, for no heart in all the world is more grateful for kindness than the loving heart of me.

Do not break my spirit with a stick, for though I should lick your hand between the blows, your patience and understanding will more quickly teach me the things you would have me do.

Speak to me often, for your voice is the world's sweetest music, as you must know by the fierce wagging of my tail when your footsteps fall upon my waiting ear.

When it is cold and wet, please take me inside, for I am now a domesticated animal, no longer used to bitter elements.  And I ask no greater glory than the privilege of sitting at your feet beside the hearth.  Though had you no home, I would rather follow you through ice and snow than rest upon the softest pillow in the warmest home in all the land, for you are my god and I am your devoted worshiper.

Keep my pan filled with fresh water, for although I should not reproach you were it dry, I cannot tell you when I suffer thirst.  Feed me clean food, that I may stay well, to romp and play and do your bidding, to walk by your side, and stand ready, willing and able to protect you with my life should your life be in danger.

And, beloved master, should the great Master see fit to deprive me of my health, do not turn me away from you.  Rather hold me gently in your arms as skilled hands grant me the merciful boon of eternal rest--and I will leave you knowing with the last breath I drew, my fate was ever safest in your hands.



It's not an easy decision but I know it is the right decision.
I know what she has meant to you. She gave you love in your darkest days.
She will forever be with you in your heart, and you in hers.


no words can convey my heartfelt sympathy. faced the same issue in early 2010. my heart and tears go out to you and your little girl. she will always be in your heart.
