Default 14 years and just like that she's gone

My wife and I got Dakota when she was only 6 weeks old. She lived a great healthy life full of energy and fun.

She still loved to greet us at the door even though her hips barely let her get there. She still gave the animals in the back yard hell for being in her yard even though she knew she couldn't chase them. She always made her way to the edge of the yard to get a cookie from my neighbor. She still knew the crinkle of the cheese wrapper and laid there knowing we would bring her some.

Friday night we made the call to have her put down. I didn't even cry that hard when grandparents and aunts & uncle's have died. When I walked her to the car to go to the vet she stopped and looked at the front door to the house. She just wanted to go inside to lay down. I hated not letting her.

We held her as she passed. She may have had the biggest heart of any creature I've ever known but it was weak and she was ready. The needle barely made it's way into her leg and she laid her head in our hands passing a couple seconds later.

R.I.P. Dakota. I hope you're resting easy.

Who's cutting up the onions?

Sorry man. I've been through it too. I'm not an emotional person but it's the hardest thing I've ever done. It sucks. Remember the good times and know she had a great life with you.

I'm crying like a baby. I have 2 dogs that are now 12 and 11 years old and starting to have issues. I know this time is coming for me.

This always gives me comfort when saying goodbye to one of my best friends. It is by Beth Norman Harris.

Treat me kindly my beloved master, for no
heart in all the world is more grateful for kindness
than the loving heart of me.

Do not break my spirit with a stick, for though I
should lick your hand between the blows, your
patience and understanding will more quickly
teach me the things you would have me do.

Speak to me often, for you voice is the world?s
sweetest music, as you must know by the fierce
wagging of my tail when your footsteps falls upon
my waiting ear.

When it is cold and wet, please take me inside
for I am now a domesticated animal, no longer
used to bitter elements, and I ask no greater glory
than the privilege of sitting at your feet beside the
hearth. Though you had no home, I would rather
follow you through ice and snow than rest upon the
softest pillow in the warmest home in all the land,
for you are my god, and I am your devoted
worshiper.

Keep my pan filled with fresh water, for
although I should not reproach you were it dry, I
cannot tell you when I suffer thirst. Feed me clean
food, that I may stay well, to romp and play and do
your bidding, to walk by your side, and stand ready,
willing and able to protect you with my life, should
your life be in danger.

And, beloved master, should the Great Master
see fit to deprive me of my health or sight, do not
turn me away from you. Rather, hold me gently in
your arms as skilled hands grant me the merciful
boon of eternal rest, and I will leave you knowing
with the last breath I drew, my fate was ever safest
in your hands.

Iím close to needing to do this myself. Clover is almost 15 and canít see very well or hear and pees all over the house. Iím having a hard time with the peeing but question if I put her down is that selfish on my part? Sheís fairly healthy otherwise. Just sleeps a lot and slow on walks.
