Laying here on the couch beside me, fast asleep one would not know his pain. His tiny body stretched out in peace.

He came into my life almost 2 year ago and has made such an impact I will never forget him. God sent him to me to show him that there are nice humans in the world. I知 sure in his past he was battered and abused, so afraid of even his shadow. I致e always been an animal lover but this one was very special, was it his "coal black eyes"?

His sickness scares me when he goes into seizures I知 sure it will be his last breath each time. But he gets up and looks at me with those "coal black eyes", and wags his little tail as if to say, "I made it through another one mommy; I知 alive"

Now as I watch his little body slowly start to fall apart my heart aches for him. The medication has taken over his liver which made him twice the size he used to be. His tiny little legs are no longer able to hold his body up with out collapsing. His cough, oh God the cough it comes from way down. What will the Dr. say today? Is it time to let go? I think so.

His heart is now enlarged, his body slowly drafting from me. He snaps at the Dr. one last time Hey wait, !! Maybe I知 doing the wrong thing. He looks over as the needle goes into his little vein. He looks back at me as if to say, "good bye mommy. " I leaned down and gave him a kiss. And said to him "I love you Chico" As he crosses over to the "Rainbow Bridge " I watched him take his last breath, I wanted to scream NO, I致e changed my mind, lets try one more time. But in my heart I knew it was time to let go. I miss him so much. He was my shadow; always wanting me to hold him, sleeping under my covers curled up next to me. For almost 2 years. It is very hard without him. I have dreams of him running through meadows of flowers looking back at me and wagging his tail as if to say" Mommy I知 having fun" I pray this is true.
