I hope this helps some of you ...

The Last Battle

If it should be that I grow frail and weak and pain should keep me from my sleep,
Then wil you do what must be done, for this — the last battle — can't be won.
You will be sad I understand, but don't let grief then stay your hand,
For on this day, more than the rest, your love and friendship must stand the test.

We have had so many happy years, you wouldn't want me to suffer so.
When the time comes, please, let me go.
Take me to where to my needs they'll 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 its last has waved,
From pain and suffering I have 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.

This will help SO MANY PEOPLE!
I really believe if PETS COULD TALK, this is what they would say at the end.

I have read that at least 50 times and have cried each and every time. I need to remember this when it is time for me to let Reno go.

It is truly a kindness, but the hardest one we will ever do for our best friends.
