      A poem, from them to you.

      I found this poem today and I think everyone should read it. I was teary eyed through the whole thing.

      THE LAST BATTLE

      If it should be that I grow frail and weak
      And pain should keep me from my sleep,
      Then will you do what must be done,
      For this -- the last battle -- can't be won.

      You will be sad I understand,
      But don't let grief then stay your hand,
      For on this day, more than the rest,
      Your love and friendship must stand the test.

      We have had so many happy years,
      You wouldn't want me to suffer so.
      When the time comes, please, let me go.
      Take me to where to my needs they'll tend.

      Only, stay with me till the end
      And hold me firm and speak to me
      Until my eyes no longer see.

      I know in time you will agree
      It is a kindness you do to me.
      Although my tail its last has waved,
      From pain and suffering I have been saved.

      Don't grieve that it must be you
      Who has to decide this thing to do;
      We've been so close -- we two -- these years,
      Don't let your heart hold any tears.

      It reminded me so much of when we had to put my best friend Whizzard down. We knew it had to be done but It was so hard. I hope everyone knows it's not always their fault their friend has to leave. Most of the time it's for the better. ♥ R.I.P. pups
