This is exactly how it went for me and my boy, I held him while he died. It was the hardest things I have had to go through. He was an AWESOME Dog. People tell you its going to be hard and you think you will be able to deal with it, but when it is actually time it is very hard.

My best friend closed his eyes last night,
As his head was in my hand.
The Doctors said he was in pain,
And it was hard for him to stand.

The thoughts that scurried through my head,
As I cradled him in my arms.
Were of his younger, puppy years,
And OH...his many charms.

Today, there was no gentle nudge
With an intense "I love you gaze",
Only a heart thats filled with tears
Remembering our joy filled days.

But an Angel just appeared to me,
And he said, "You should cry no more,
GOD also loves our canine friends,
HE's installed a 'doggy-door"!

This is probably the most regrettable decision I've ever made.

I had a female Blue Heeler named Roxy that was very old...almost blind in both eyes and walking was becoming more of a chore for her day by day. Through the years she went everywhere with me. I had to attend a function that was going to keep me away from home overnight so I took Roxy and drove 2hrs South to my parents so she would be in familiar surroundings while I was gone. That night my dad called and said that he didn't think she would last the night. In a heartbeat I left the function and headed the 2hrs South. She died before I got there. My mom sat with her saying "Hold on Roxy...Ric will be here soon" but it wasn't meant to be. I still feel guilty that I wasn't there...but I'm sure Roxy hit that "Doggy Door" running full blast with a new found vibrance knowing that she will always be with me.

If a man speaks in the desert where no woman can he still wrong?
