Farewell Good Friend

A goodbye isn't painful unless you're never going to say hello again. ~Author Unknown

Farewell Good Friend
Your road has been long,
For me, the journey to brief.

From the moment of your first breath,
You belonged with me.

You've guided me and protected me,
Always, have you been loyal to me.

Your heart always pure,
Your soul endlessly deep.

Know you were so loved,
and forever, your memory I keep.

You were and always will be,
such a huge part of me.

Go now and sleep,
and feel no more pain.

Find beloved Kish, and both of you,
wait there for me.

Godspeed and find your well deserved peace,
My dear loyal friend, a part of my heart, you will forever keep.

Dearest Kish, protect him and love him, till I'm there with you both.

Oh, Nuts... condolences. It always so hard to say good-bye to the dogs we love. He looks like he was a happy one.

It's always so sad to lose one of beloved best friends. He was a beautiful dog who looked like he was happy. I'm sure he didn't want to leave you just yet, but it was his time, and at least he has someone waiting for him. Sorry for your grief but know he will be by your side always.

I'm very sorry for your loss. If only pets could be with us for as long as we live, because they enrich our lives so much while they are there.

God Bless,

I'm so sorry. We have our second GSD, our Zuni. Our first dear GSD had to put down due to hip dsyplasia complications. It devastated my husband and I so bad that we waited 10 years before we adopted another dog....and of course, it had to be another GSD.

Your boy was one handsome well loved boy. I'm so very sorry.

Oh I am sorry for the loss of you pup. They have a way of wrapping you around them don't they. I had a little JRT that I lost, I miss her still everyday. ((hugs)) Thank goodness for photographs.
