So much loved and now so very sadly missed by Laurie and Sara Montoya
My beloved dog, Moose, went to the Bridge this morning. He was a little over 8 years old. Rather than prolong his suffering, we let him go with his dignity intact. We wanted him to walk out with his head held high. And a bellyful of Dunkin Donuts. Moose had a blast this last week on Earth. He went to 5 Guys last night, Pizza Hut the night before, he's had anything and everything he stuck his nose in, to his utter disbelief !! We had time to say a proper goodbye, and for that I'm eternally grateful. He wasn't about to tell me he was ready to go, he loved me too much for that. I had to do it for him. It was my last gift. His heart was full of marshmallows and rainbows. He is my heart dog. I love my boy, there is a Moose-sized hole in my heart right now.
Rest in peace, funny man, we'll both miss your Moose-hugs

The Last Battle
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, the last battle, can't be won.
You will be sad, I understand,
Don't let the grief then stay your hand,
For this day more than all the rest
Your love and friendship stand the test.
We've had so many happy years,
What is to come can hold no fears.
You'd not want me to suffer so;
When the time comes, please let me go.
Take me where my needs they'll tend
And stay with me, if you can, to the end.
Hold me firm and speak to me
Until my eyes no longer see.
I know in time, you will see,
It is a kindness you do for me.
Although my tail its last was waved,
From pain and suffering I've been saved.
Don't grieve that it should be you,
Who must decide this thing to do,
We've been so close, we two, these years;
Don't let your heart hold any tears.
Smile, for we walked together for a little while.
