AJ, we will miss you.  Micah will miss you very much. So will Tom.

Daisy and Ace will miss you.

Thank you for all the puppies you gave us to share with so many loving families.


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 need 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.

We held you. We petted you.  We were there to offer you any comfort that you needed.

I hope and pray that you knew we were there. I hope you know we didn't want to do what must be done.

I know, that you know, how much you were loved. You were Micah's first puppy and he will miss you very much.

I hope we brought you comfort during those last hours.

Saying goodbye is always so hard. I cried when you were gone. But we found a nice place that will be your forever home.
