Among our pet eulogies Tandie Apple, beloved Min Pin dog, receives a most loving and creative tribute from her human family, in the form of a beautiful poem

In memorium to Tandie Apple – January 2000 – May 2013

We will miss our Tandie Apple she was a Min Pin, Tiny in size but large in presence! She had diabetes, and ended up blind. We had the Vet come to our home to have her go peacefully, which she did. I found this poem and it says it all!

May I go now?
Do you think the time is right?
May I say good-bye to pain-filled days
and endless lonely nights?
I’ve lived my life and done my best,
an example tried to be.
So can I take that step beyond
and set my spirit free?
I didn’t want to go at first,
I fought with all my might.
But something seems to draw me now
to a warm and loving light.
I want to go.
I really do.
It’s difficult to stay.
But I will try as best I can
to live just one more day
To give you time to care for me
and share your love and fears.
I know you’re sad and so afraid,
because I see your tears.
I’ll not be far,
I promise that, and hope you’ll always know
that my spirit will be close to you,
wherever you may go.
Thank you for loving me.
You know I love you too.
That’s why it’s hard to say good-bye
and end this life with you.
So hold me now, just one more time
and let me hear you say,
because you care so much for me,
you’ll let me go today.
