We are on a somber mood tonight. We got word that Chi-Chi has crossed the Rainbow Bridge. Chi-Chi, a two year old shih tzu had been in and out of our clinic for the past three months due to renal disease. She always managed to pull out of it, becoming her old self again in no time. But this last time was just too much for Chi-Chi's poor little body.
Chi-Chi was blessed with the love and commitment of her human family. In the end, they opted to take her home, to be with her during her last moments.
Don't Grieve for Me
Don't grieve for me, for now I am free.
I'm following paths God made for me
I took his hand, I heard him call...
Then turned, and bid farewell to all.
I could not stay another day
To laugh, to love, to sing, to play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way
I found my peace...at close of day.
And if my parting left a void
Then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss,
Ah yes, these things I too will miss.
Be not burdened...deep with sorrow,
I wish you sunshine of tomorrow.
My life's been full...I've savored much.
Good friends, good times...a loved ones touch
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief.
Don't lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your heart and share with me,
God wants me now...He set me free!
In loving memory
