I'm sad to be posting on here,Keiyas last post .
She would have been about 13 years old and had slowed down in the past year.
She had artrhitis and her back legs had gone very weak.
The day came that I was dreading and we did the last kind thing for her,and let her go
We gave her 8 wonderful years but she gave us 8 even better ones.
Sleep tight my little fuzzy bear,until we meet again
Thank you D.I.D for the pleasure of minding this beautiful one in a million dog xxx

Lend me a pup
I will lend you for a while a German Shepherd pup, GOD said.
For you to love her while she lives, and mourn him when she is dead.
Maybe for twelve or fourteen years, or maybe two or three.
But will you, 'till I call her back, take care of her for me?
She'll bring her charms to gladden you and should her stay be brief,
you'll always have her memories as solace for your grief.
I cannot promise she will stay, since all from earth return.
But there are lessons taught below I want this pup to learn.
I've looked the whole world over in search of teachers true.
And from the folk that crowd's life's land, well I have chosen you.
Now will you give her all your love, nor think the labor vain,
nor hate me when I come to take my Shepherd back again?
I fancied that I heard them say "Dear Lord Thy Will be Done,"
for all the joys this pup will bring, the risk of grief we'll run.
We'll shelter her with tenderness, we'll love her while we may.
And for the happiness we've known forever grateful stay.
But should you call her back, much sooner than we've planned,
we'll brave the bitter grief that comes and try to understand.
If, by our love, we've managed, your wishes to achieve,
in memory of her we loved, to help us while we grieve.
When our faithful friend departs this world of strife,
we'll have another German Shepherd and love her all his life.
Grieve not, nor speak of me with tears, but laugh and talk of me as if I were beside you... I loved you so... 'twas heaven here with you."
