Little Buddha Dog
A short love story about a woman's best friend & their last day together

"He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog.  You are his life, his love, his leader.  He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart.
You owe it to him to be worthy  of such devotion."
- Unknown

Sometimes love is also about letting go. . . even when we feel our hearts    
are breaking in the process.  Sometimes the greatest love we can extend to our Beloved pet is the final act of caring enough to say goodbye.  To release them from their suffering and knowing when to say goodbye is an act of love.  This is not about us. . . this is about the precious life of an animal we cared for and loved so deeply.  We must find the courage within ourselves to accept this final act as a gift of love, knowing in our hearts that Grace is fully present in these final moments of surrender.

As they are letting go of life, we are learning how to let go of them.  Their
eyes and hearts tell us everything we need to know.  They are ready when they
are ready and we must know that, lovingly.  If we are the ones bestowed with
the honor of being their caretaker during their life, then we too must be worthy
of such devotion at the end of their lives.  To gently ease their way out of pain
and suffering is our final, courageous act of LOVE.
