Comment on I HATE THIS PART RIGHT HERE! by Ryan Elledge

So sorry for the pain you all are feeling right now. Casey has definitely been a great dog. I am reminded of a prayer I see everytime I take Hoover to the vet. The last lines of the prayer, titled A Dog’s Prayer by Beth Norman Harris, reads:

And, beloved master, should the great Master see fit to deprive me of my health, 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.

You can rest assured Casey lived a great, long life knowing the whole time how much she was loved. I remember feeling so sorry for her as you and your brothers would lug her around, by the neck as you indicated, but she loved every bit of it. One couldn’t ask for a more loyal, caring, good dog. We will all miss her. But, as the Dog Prayer said, she leaves this earth knowing that her fate was always safest in your hands.

Love you Courtney, and all the Lecher’s. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
