Let me tell you a story about a boy and his dog … it has a very sad ending though …
Yesterday I had to let go of my best buddy, Rocky. My poor dog has been struggling for months with an illness that takes away his ability to walk. Only about two months ago .. he was getting better .. but that was short lived .. and I reluctantly brought him to the vet for one last visit. The thoughts and images are still clear in my mind .. I feel defeated, I let him down, how could I do this to him .. there was nothing more I could do for my trusted friend. I dreaded this day for years .. I didn’t want to hear of it .. but I knew the day would come.
We started off the day as usual with his meal .. and he was still eating like a horse. I brought him to the park one last time and asked God to take care of my puppy while we’re apart. I never wanted to say good-bye to my buddy .. never .. but like my Dad had told me years ago .. You’ll be together again one day ..
I hope he’s right ..
