Re: The Journey

Absolutely beautiful!!!! And very SAD.
We just lost our "Midnight" 2 weeks ago (feline of 17 yrs) and layed by his side as he took his last breath and said farewell. Even though we have our loving GSD's and 2 other felines at home with us. It still does leave a large hole in the center of your heart when you loose a devoted friend. If only everyone knew the joy of having a companion that didn't judge you and only wanted love in return for it's life long devotion. This world would be a much better place. Thank You for the chance to read your heartfelt story of another of God's creatures. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/angel.gif[/img]

Re: The Journey

This was so moving and appropriate for my situation as I lost my little girl of 13+ years this week. Thank you for the inspiration to move on.

Re: The Journey

I know I am very late in posting but I just saw this.
I am a writer and cannot even fathom writing anything as beautiful as this tribute to our beloved pets.
I, too, will copy this and pass it along at appropriate times because it is sure to help many people (like myself) who all too often allow life to pass us by instead of living it to the fullest.
Thanks so much.

Re: The Journey

A very dear friend of ours abroad just had to put her GSD to sleep this past Saturday. I sent her The Journey along with my sympathies. It says it all! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/25_angel.gif[/img]

Re: The Journey

In about 9 hours it will be one year since Navarre died. What a great story, if you can call it that. It still feels like just yesterday, and my heart still aches, but it's nice to know he's not in pain anymore. And like it says, he took a path I cannot <u>YET</u> take. Thanks.

Re: The Journey

Thanks for posting this Jacqui. It will be one year in Oct when I had to make that fateful decision to let my GSD go. It was all very sudden. I cried for days, moped around the house for weeks, and finally months later I felt at peace that Zoe is not sufferring anymore.

I wrote a little poem and made a card as a tribute to her, and sent it out to all the people who had met Zoe before. I received a couple of "sympathy cards", a few hugs and a friend from overseas even sent me some flowers. Some didn't say anything at all, not even to acknowledge that they received my card but I didn't care what they think.

I did what I wanted to do that is to tell her story. Zoe was a very big part of my life. She spoke my language, understood my emotions, was a very loyal friend, has shown more love than any human being can give me.

We were together for 13.5 years. It was all too short but I was very priviledged that she came into my life.
