How worried I was there was no-one to care for you, and I fought before they took me away. A friend came and saved the day, but that was not the end of it.
I did not know I wouldn’t come home, and knew not where you would be.
If souls linger, mine did. I sought out another from the other side, got a message across. They understood and told me you were safe, that I could rest easy.
It has not been an easy time for you, to adjust to change, but you settled into your new home in a relatively short time. No spring chicken though old girl, but you had your walks, a comfy bed, toys and company, were well fed, warm, and looked after.
Pain and illness struck a little while ago and suddenly you showed your years. Stiff and tired, the walks were slow, but you rallied and enjoyed the time you had left.
They say our beloved fur children go to a special place and wait for us humans to join them. I have been waiting for you, and now you have come to me.
Let us walk as we did, both of us younger and more sprightly in our gait. The years and pain just fall away and we are together once more………….. this time forever.Note:
Our friend passed away two days before Christmas last year and her dog was taken in by mutual friends who live opposite. Had they not, we would have taken her as she was not a young dog. She enjoyed walks along the beach and through the park every day, but in recent months her health has deteriorated and on Bank Holiday Monday, she was taken to the vet for the last time.
Now I see these two souls having been united, walking side by side as they always did when we first came here. RIP
