Run, Cassie, Run!

August 26, 2011


It is time. You’re letting us know. So now we have to let you go.

Let you go so that your pain ends. Let you go so that you can run again. Run again and never be tired, never hurt, and always get the prize.

If you want it. You were always more interested in chasing the other hounds and you wanted badly to play with the horses. You will be able to do whatever your big heart desires.

Perhaps you will just make people sandwiches with the other leaners who have gone on before you.

Go to sleep sweet, sweet girl. It is time to rest. When you wake you will be all new.

I don’t believe animals have Souls, but the souls they do have are for a purpose. You served yours and I am so grateful we got to be your forever home. So perhaps when the world is made new again we will see you too, just running and running.

Forever in our hearts…
