Kep, a thank you.

Its been over a week and I still find myself having tearful moments, but the messages and words of support from everyone has made this dark time a little brighter. I known for most of the comments on here and facebook took just a moment to write, but they really meant a lot to Caz and me, thank you all very much.

Two poems came to light during the past week, the first Caz found and posted on facebook.

"He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog.
You are his life, his love, and his leader. He will be yours,
faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart.
You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion."

The second came from Gary, read this post to see how import he nearly was to Kep.

The Last Battle

If it should be that I grow frail and weak,
And pain should keep me from my sleep,
Then will you do what must be done,
For this, the last battle, can't be won.

You will be sad I understand,
But don't let grief then stay your hand,
For on this day, more than the rest,
Your love and friendship must stand the test.

We have had so many happy years,
You wouldn't want me to suffer so.
When the time comes, please, let me go.

Take me to where to my needs they'll tend,
Only, stay with me till the end

And hold me firm and speak to me,
Until my eyes no longer see.
I know in time you will agree,
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 that it must 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.

Gary, this had both of us in tears, thank you, i knew i'd picked the right home for Kep.

To finish this Kep post a list of his best posts.
