Today we'll have to say "Fare well" to one more family member, our dog Kelsey, she's been in our hearts and home for 11 years now, and my Johnanthon has agreed to allow us to let her go to heaven to help God out in his gardens, to keep cats the out, shes been my Johnanthons girl and he's been her man, but shes been coughing and it sounds like croup and hips are bad and she gags so bad when she coughs. Heres a little poem I found and please keep my son and the rest of us in prayer.... IF IT SHOULD BE
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.
