IT,S BEEN A COUPLE OF DAYS SINCE I LAST WRITTEN, TODAY OUR VET CALLED TO LET US KNOW THAT SHELBY'S ASHES WERE IN. SO MY BABY IS COMING HOME,IT HELPS A LITTLE TO KNOW SHE WILL BE BACK WITH US.YESTERDAY WE RECEIVED A CARD A POST CARD FROM THE VET WITH SHELBY'S PAW PRINTS ON IT AND ALSO A POEM ON THE OTHER SIDE IT MADE ME FEEL BETTER,BUT ALSO BROUGHT A TEAR TO MY EYES. SO TO EVERYONE WHO HAS LOST A PET HERE IS THE POEM.

IF IT SHOULD BE
IF IT SHOULD BE THAT I GROW FRAIL AND WEAK,AND PAIN SHOULD WAKE ME FROM MY SLEEP;
THEN YOU MUST DO WHAT WHAT MUST BE DONE, FOR THIS BATTLE CAN'T BE WON.

YOU WILL BE SAD, I'LL UNDESTAND DON'T LET GRIEF THEN STAY YOUR HAND; FOR THIS DAY MORE THAN ALL THE REST, YOUR LOVE AND FRIENDSHIP STAND THE TEST.

WE'VE HAD SO MANY HAPPY YEARS, WHAT IS TO COME WILL HOLD NO FEARS; YOU'LL NOT WANT ME TO SUFFER,SO WHEN THE TIME COMES,PLEASE LET ME GO.

I KNOW IN TIME,YOU TOO WILL SEE,IT IS A KINDNESS YOU DO ME;ALTHOUGH MY TAIL ITS LAST HAS WAVED, FROM PAIN AND SUFFERING, I'VE BEEN SAVED.

DO NOT GRIEVE THAT IT SHOULD BE YOU,WHO HAS TO DECIDE THIS THING TO DO; WE'VE BEEN SO CLOSE, WE TWO, THESE,YEARS, DON'T LET YOUR HEART HOLD ANY TEARS.
