Goodbye Sweet Fur-Child!

When it is time to say goodbye to one of our fur-kids, the emotions that we feel are overwhelming. It is even harder when we have to make the choice for them. My dear friend recently had to do this. Her final gift to her beloved Bailey, was helping her to cross the Rainbow Bridge. Amber, this one is for you. Bailey was blessed to have you as her mom! RIP sweet Bailey….you will be missed forever!

Dear Mommy

My last day was quite hard for you
I know it crushed your soul,
But what you did was right for me
Your braveness made me whole!

My body could not carry on
I used up all its play,
And in your heart, you knew it was
To be my final day!

With tears, you took me to our vet
With just a bit of hope,
But everyone agreed with you
My body could not cope!

I felt your arms around me, mom
Your love came shining through,
And as you cried those tears for me
I wanted to help you!

I tried real hard to wag my tail
And kiss you on your face,
For you were sending me to Him
With dignity and grace!

Oh mom, I had a special life
With you right from the start,
As your first kid, I’ll always be
Forever in your heart!

Let Aidan and sweet Bella know
That from my cloud above,
I’ll always have my eyes on them
Protecting with my love!

For up here, I can see again
Still bumping into things,
They say it takes a little time
To work these Angel wings!

My body is now full of life
My puppyness is back,
My mind is sharp, my heart is full
There’s nothing that I lack!

Though yesterday was hard for you
I thank you for your choice,
I needed you to do this, mom
You had to be my voice!

With love and licks, Bailey
