- Notes in Loving Memory -

Dear Kiley;

My heart goes out to you and how horrible is was to have to make such a difficult decision in order for her not to have to suffer any longer.

We had to do the same with our beloved dog and I'd like to share with you the poem I wrote and read at her funeral. We have a Pet Cemetery fairly close to us and both our previous babies are there.

I hope that in reading this little poem you will know that you are not suffering alone. 


Dear Kiley...Mousie's Mom...thank you for sharing the story of love and heartbreak with those of us who love animals as you do. What a lovely life you gave to this precious guy. It takes great courage to let our best friends go....I know you did it with great love..Mousie knows this too. I hope you will open you heart to another fur person who needs a loving heart/home. Those of us who love and understand animals must do what we can to ease the suffering of our fellow creatures. I grieve with you in the loss of Mousie..I am so sorry he had to suffer at all...sometimes I doubt there is a god.....I do believe there is some kind of energy for good in the that in the end, brings us together with our loved ones...animal and human.

With heart thoughts for you and Mousie,

Love, Gala. CA.
