    UnhappyAuggie 12/29/95 ~ 01/15/09

    Our dear, precious Auggie, who has been such a large part of our life for so long, passed peacefully with the kind help of her veterinarian, Dr.Dale, at home the evening of 1/15/09.

    Auggie had been living with hepocellular carcinoma, Cushing's, the loss of one eye due to glaucoma, and lately an inoperable, invasive, aggressive mast cell tumor. In the end the mast cell tumor had compromised her heart and lungs; lasix gave her a measure of relief for awhile....

    Rest In Peace Auggie, and Godspeed.

    Oh, how we miss you....




    If It Should Be

    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, cannot be won.
    You will be sad, I understand
    Don't let your grief then stay your hand.
    For this day, more than 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 would not want me to suffer so
    When the time comes please let me go.
    Take me where my needs they'll tend
    Only, stay with me to the end
    And 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 to me
    Although my tail its last has waved
    From pain and suffering I have been saved.
    Don't grieve it should be you
    Who has to decide this thing to do
    We've been so close we two these years
    Don't let your heart hold any tears.

    So I am glad, not that she's gone
    But that this earth she roamed and lived upon
    Was my earth, too, that I had closely known
    And loved her and that my love I'd shown.
    Tears over her departure?
    Nay - a smile
    That I had walked with her a little while.

    I just had to bring Her with me to this forum should the move be permanent...

    No need to apologise.

    Our pups are our most precious asset and when they go this is proof positive.

    Auggie was beautiful. I'm very sorry for your loss. It's been over a year since we lost Ike and I still cry at the most unexpected times.

    Of course, that was the only right thing to do. My heart aches when I think about how much you must miss her.
