A Dog’s Prayer
Thank you, my beloved friend, for your kind treatment.
No heart in all the world is more grateful for your kindness than the
loving heart of me.
And, my friend, now that I no longer enjoy good health,
and we know that I am dying, do not make heroic efforts to keep me going.
I am not having any fun. Please see that my trusting life is taken gently.
I shall leave this earth knowing with the last breath I draw that my fate
was always safest in your hands.
