My Beautiful Black Chow
My beautiful black chow chow passed away on 01-02-2012. She had not been her self for many weeks. Walking very slowly, being a picky eater, eventually crying out.
She had a doctor visit and it was determined from x-rays that she had a tumor in her stomach. When I heard this information, I felt an out of body experience. My hands were icy cold.
I will never forget that day we put you to sleep. It felt like a piece of my soul and heart was ripped away. That the world felt smaller, emptier, like a void was ever present. There was a unique bond between us, at times just looking into your hazel eyes I could tell what you needed.
I do believe that all animals have an essence, a spirit. I know that you are in a better place. I will never forget your loyalty and companionship. I feel lucky to have had you in my life.
May you be at rest and joyful in doggy heaven. My ever vigilant, beautiful, ebony chow-chow.
