Tyramara's Angel On My Shoulder

Don't Grieve Too Long"
Don't grieve too long, for now I'm free.
I've followed the path God has set for me.
I ran to Him when I heard His Call.
I swished my tail and left it all.
I could not stay another day,
To bark, to love, to romp or play.
Games left unplanned must stay that way.
I found such peace, it made my day.
My parting has left you with a void.
Please fill it with remembered joy,
A friendship shared, your laugh, a kiss.
Oh yes, these things I too shall miss.
Be not burdened with times of sorrow.
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life has been full, you've given so much,
Your time, your love and gentle touch.
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief.
Don't lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your head and share with me,
God wanted me, He set me free!

Ch. Teralea's Show Me The Money

A picture of him in his prime is on my Champions page.
Cash developed osteoarthritis or calcium spurs on his spine, which made him lose control of his back legs. I was able to keep him in comfort with medication and helping him with his mobility for the last year. I wanted to give him as much of the warm summer sunshine that he loved and these pictures were taken in late May when he still had some control of his hind end and could sit down with his buddy Mr. Bean. In the end his strong will could not combat his failing body and I had to let him go.
The evening that he left me, he gave me this final gift, the clouds parted and showed me the sunshine path to his new home.
I miss you so, my little man, Till we meet again.
Angel I hardly got to know you. So short a time, so sweet a time. Run free, my darling.
