So long Rufus. You were truly a beautiful boy. You taught me so much about life that I had forgotten; that it was good to love again, and not to fear even the sadness of death. I happy that you are out of pain and your illness was brief, but I am sad that I won't have to go find one of my shoes that you hid every day, your cold nose nudging me awake every morning and that you never were more than a few feet from my side. I'll miss giving you your morning back scratch, and your enthusiastic greeting when I came home every day. Letting you go was the toughest thing I have done in a long time. I did it for you, I could bear putting you the pain of fighting a disease and leaving you without the mobility and ability to play that you so enjoyed. I miss your companionship, your strength, and your watchful eye over our home and children. I can never replace you Rufus and you will forever be in my heart until we meet again.

I'm so sorry. Rufus was a beautiful boy and I can tell how much he was loved. His spirit will always be in your heart. I think you'll find much friendship, support and, I hope, comfort here from many who have walked in your shoes.
