If it should be that I should grow frail and weak, and pain should keep me from my sleep, then you must do what must be done, For this, the last battle can't be won.
You will be sad, I understand; don't let grief then stay your hand, for on this day, more than rest, your love and friendship must stand the test.
We had so many happy years, what is to come can hold no fears. You'd not want me to suffer so. When the time comes, please let me go.
Take me to where my needs they will tend; only stay with me till the end and hold me firm and speak to me, until my eyes no longer see. I know in time you will agree it is a kindness you do to me.
Although my tail it's last has waved, From pain and suffering I have been saved; don't grieve that it must 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.

The day finally came when like all your friends before you, you lost your eyesight to cataracts. I found it amazing how you navigated throughout the house and yard by using your little sniffer. I knew that the only time that you would be able to see would be in your dreams. Many times in the middle of the night, while laying close to me, your legs would began to move, your body would jerk and at times you would give a little "woof". I never disturbed you knowing that you were enjoying your dream state and seeing again. Now and forever, you will always see.
