I want to thank everyone for the kind words and seniments. Mac was a fatastic friend, I miss him terribly.
This picture was taken on 8/18/12
When tomorrow starts without me,
And I'm not there to see,
The sun will rise and find your eyes
all filled with tears for me.
I wish so much you wouldn't cry
the way you did today,
Remembering how I'd lay my head
in your lap that special way.
I know how much you love me,
as much as I love you,
And each time that you think of me,
I know you'll miss me too.
But when tomorrow starts without me,
Please try to understand,
that an angel came and called my name
and petted me with her hand.
She said my place was ready,
In heaven far above,
and that I'd have to leave behind
all those I dearly love.
But as I turned to heel away,
a tear fell from my eye,
for all my life I never thought
that I would have to die.
I had so much to live for,
so many sits and downs to do,
it seemed almost impossible
that I was leaving you.
I thought about our lives together,
I know you must be sad,
I thought of all the love we shared,
and all the fun we had.
Remember how I'd nudge your hand
and poke you with my nose?
The frisbee I would gladly chase,
The bad guy I'd "bark and hold".
If I could relive yesterday,
just even for awhile,
I'd wag my tail and kiss you,
just so I could see you smile.
But then I fully realized,
that this could never be,
for emptiness and memories
will take the place of me.
And when I thought of treats and toys,
I might miss come tomorrow,
I thought of you and when I did,
my dog heart filled with sorrow.
But then I walked through heaven's gate,
and felt so much at home,
as God looked down and smiled at me,
from his beautiful golden throne.
He said " this is eternity,
and now we welcome you,
today your life on earth is past,
but here it starts anew.
I promise no tomorrow,
but today will always last;
for you see, each day's the same day,
there's no longing for the past.
Now you have been so faithful,
so trusting, loyal, and true;
Though there were times you did things,
you knew you shouldn't do.
But good dogs are forgiven,
and now at last you're free;
so won't you sit here by my side,
and wait right here with me?"
So when tomorrow starts without me,
don't think we 're far apart.
For everytime you think of me,
I'm right there, in you heart.

So sorry for your loss. He is beautiful. The last picture of Cody is at the vets with my arms around him too. Hard to think of not wrapping them in ours arms again on this earth. Love the poem, those help a lot.
