Be Okay With Losing Your Pet
A Pets Prayer for Their Owner
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 last battle, cannot be won.
For this day more than the rest,
Your love and friendship has stood the test.
We’ve had so many years,
What is to come can hold no fears.
You wouldn’t want me to suffer so
When the time comes, please let me go.
Hold me firm and speak to me
Until my eyes no longer see.
Although my tail its last has waved,
From pain and suffering, I’ve been saved.
We’ve been so close through these years,
Don’t let your heart hold on to the tears.
This day marks my dad’s 60th birthday and the last night of our furry family member – Wowie.
My dad named Wowie that evening he came home from work. As we surrounded the puppy box, my dad told us a story of a similar dog he had while growing up. Hence, the name stuck. We thought he was quite a sophisticated dog, so we gave him a longer name, “Walter Wowie.”
After 16 years of friendship, Wowie will be making his transition. At 103 dog years, Wowie has been such a joy to my life and others. It’s immensely heart-breaking to have him put to sleep but it’s just as saddening to see him struggle so much.
He will always be a special part of the family and I’ll never forget Walter Wowie – the classy, wise and happy dog.
I love you dad – I intend that you are blessed with so much more than you can imagine.
I love you Wowie – thank you for being such a sweet, furry family member.
