Mourning on Monday

Goodbye Sweet Pixie, we'll miss you. But in honor of you, we tried some 'naners and we decided that you were right, they are tasty. Now whenever we see a 'naner we'll think of you!

A Pets Prayer
If it should be, that I grow frail and weak,
And pain should keep me from my sleep,
Then, you must do what must be done
For this, the last battle, can't be won.
Don't let your grief stay your hand,

For this day more than the rest,
Your love and friendship stand the test.
We've had so many years,
What is to come can hold no fear.
You'd not want me to suffer, so
When the time comes, please let me go.

Take me where my needs they'll tend,
Only, stay with me to the end
And hold me firm and speak to me
Until my eyes no longer see.
I know in time you'll see it is a kindness you do for me
Although my tail its last has waved,
From pain and suffering I've been saved.

Don't grieve it should be you who this thing decides to do.
We've been so close, we two, these years,
Don't let your heart hold tears.

It is so sad to have to say goodbye. Too many have left for the Bridge lately. This is a wonderful poem that you have posted.
