Rest In Peace

Time to let me go my friend,
Because my life no-one can mend,
Its better to let me go this way,
Than watch me suffer night and day.

I'm happy to go, my time has come,
My quality of life is no longer fun,
I've been so ill, so it's not a bad thing,
To let me go forever resting.

Stay with me till I drift away,
Fast asleep forever I pray,
To relieve me from suffering and pain,
What more can I ask from my best friend.

Don't be sad, I'll be free from pain,
Never to be ill ever again,
I know you'll miss me being there,
But all the memories you have to share.

Thank you for being my best friend,
And all my needs that you did tend,
Try not to be sad, try not to cry,
Now's the time to say GOODBYE

This poem is from a person who has to say good-bye to their beloved dog says it all and was found here

Sergio was born January 1st, 1998 and was known as Ch. Laurelton Sunnystone Defiant.  He received his championsip in 1999

He was sired by Ch Laurelton Now or Never x Ch Sunnystone Westerdam. Bred by Kathryn Martel and The Late Sergio Balcazar.  My Sergio was named after this person.

Here is a link to my mother's old site for her Wire Fox Terriers and if you scroll down to the bottom picture you can see Sergio at one year old.  http://www.foxxrunwires.com/masonpastCH.htm

When I found out that Sergio had cancer I put on my big girl panties and thru tears of sorrow, I looked him in the eyes and made a promise that I would do the right thing when the time came.  Last night that promise was put to the test as I sat with him, loved on him and in the end drove him all the way to the Vet knowing that it was his time, yet wondering if I could actually do this.  Sergio was put to rest last night, out of the pain he was in and with a heavy heart I went to sleep last night for the first time in all these years without my friend near me and I awake this morning to the dread of going thru my first day of life without my best friend.

Sergio - you were loved and will be missed

Donna - so sorry about Sergio. They are our children and we grieve for them as we grieve for our human family and friends. I've had 3 terriers, only one left. He was born March 30th of 1998 and I know my time left with him is short ening with each day. All we can do is love them and know when it's time to let them go. I know it doesn't make it easier, it's never easy. I hope the ache in your heart eases. He knew you loved him.

Donna, my heart goes out to you.
Having stood where you stand today, i know the pain that comes with the loss of your best friend. The poem you posted is beautiful, it says it all and yes, I cried for Sergio, I cried for you and I cried for my Bella.
Time will mend the broken heart, but you will never forget him as I never forget my Bella even 12 years later. Hang in there my friend, give your heart time to heal, and the memories won't be so painful.

I'm so sorry Sergio isn't with you any more, I just found out about it. Just feel hugged, I had to have my dog put to rest last year in June and it still hurts. But it gets easier with time. At least I don't have to cry every time when I think about her any more.
