Until the Day...|

The old girl felt her worn and tired muscles relax and her pain dissolve. She drew in
"A collage of happy images and tender days."
She felt their soft touches against her fur. Their hands sent a tactile message of their
"Don't cry for me or feel sad."
She heard them as she shut her eyes. They said her name and the "good girl" words,
"Good bye, my Hearts."
She is standing in a meadow, near a stream. The sky is fiercely blue. She hears the
"Thank you. Until the day we walk together once again."
She turns and wags her thick strong tail and runs. And runs.
for Sarita, Ray and Shasta
