When I Get OldFamilyPet
Do you remember when you first saw me and couldn’t wait to make me yours? I remember. You picked me up and snuggled me close, giving me hugs and kisses. You took me home and gave me a family of my own.
Together we’ve welcomed dogs, cats, and kids. We’ve gone on car rides, walks, and spent countless quiet moments together. You’ve been my world.
Now that I’m old, you mean more to me than ever. I count on you to take care of me when I’m sick. To watch out for me when I’m moving slow. To know when I’m in pain and not up for that walk we meant to take. Most of all, I know you love me enough to know when it’s time to say good-bye.
When our time together is though don’t mourn for me. Know I cherished every minute we had together. We’re best friends and will always be. I will wait for you on the other side of the Rainbow Bridge. I will be there for you when it is your turn too to cross over. In the meantime, go save a new best friend and give him all the love you shared with me.
Know I am watching over you and approve because every ‘lost’ dog deserves to be found.
