Rest In Peace, Dear Rex...

In Loving Memory Of Rex 
5 March 2002  ~  6 September 2012
As you got older, 
you moved around more slower. 
Then one day, 
old age finally took its toll, 
and you couldn't stand on those wobbly legs anymore. 
I knelt down and patted you lying there, 
trying to make you young again. 
You just looked up at me 
as if to say you were old and tired 
and that after all of these years of not asking for anything, 
you had to ask me to do one last favor. 
With tears in my eyes, 
I drove you one last time to the vet. 
One last time you were lying next to me. 
For some strange reason 
As the vet led you away,
you turned your head and looked at me as if to say, 
" Thank you for taking care of me." 
And I thought, " No . . . Thank you for taking care of me." 

Rex, I will never forget you ...
Love Lucy

So very sad. Such a difficult thing to have to do. I've been there several times.

Hello Perfectposie,
Animal lovers (like ourselves) find it very hard to part with their pets when they die - because they become part of our family :(

"Remembering Rex is easy,
We do it everyday.
It's the heartache of losing him
that will never go away..."

Thanks a lot for your kind messages.
