Animals In Print
The On-Line Newsletter

From 14 May 2002 Issue

BYE BABY

No more lonely cold nights or hearing that I'm bad

No more growling belly from the meals I never had.

No more scorching sunshine with a water bowl that's dry.

No more complaining neighbors about the noise when I cry.

No more hearing "shut up", "get down" or "get out of here"! 

No more feeling disliked, only peace is in the air.

Euthanasia is a blessing, though some still can't see

why I was ever born If I weren't meant to be.

My last day of living was the best I ever had.

Someone held me very close, I could see she was very sad.

I kissed the lady's face, and she hugged me as she cried.

I wagged my tail to thank her, then I closed my eyes and died.

~Written by an Animal shelter volunteer in Massena, NY
