Smile Because It Happened

When my legs grew too weak to carry me , 
And my tired eyes could no longer see,
When it pained me to struggle for each new breath,
When my heart beat weaker, and I drew closer to death,
You did me the kindness of letting me go
You didn't make me hang on when I was suffering so
I promise I don't think that you loved me any less,
And I love you all the more for your selfishness
You freed my spirit from it's body so wracked with pain,
And let me run the fields of Heaven, where I'm sure we'll meet again.

Oh no... I am so so so sorry for your loss. May he rest in peace.

This is the hardest thing about owning collies, or any dogs....letting them go, saying goodbye, causes such a deep wound. I'm so sorry, I never feel I have the right words to offer comfort, when the loss is so great.

I'm so sorry!!!!! I know sorry isn't enough but I never know what exactly to say to bring comfort, because I know there really isn't anything to say.

Tate had the best mom to see him through his slower years. Time may heal the pain but the memories will live on forever. I'm sorry for your loss.

I am so sorry to hear this. I wish I could say or do something to offer more comfort. Know that I'm thinking of you and Tate is watching over you. What a stunning and wonderful collie he is. I hope your sweet memories with him will bring you comfort and peace during this time.
Lots of love to you!
