Time to Let Go......

Time to let me go my friend,
Because my life no-one can mend,
Its better to let me go this way,
Than watch me suffer night and day.

I'm happy to go, my time has come,
My quality of life is no longer fun,
I’ve been so ill, so its not a bad thing,
To let me go forever resting.

Stay with me till I drift away,
Fast asleep forever I pray,
To relieve me from suffering and pain,
What more can I ask from my best friend.

Don't be sad, I'll be free from pain,
Never to be ill ever again,
I know you'll miss me being there,
But all the memories you have to share.

Thank you for being my best friend,
And all my needs that you did tend,
Try not to be sad, try not to cry.
Now's the time to say GOODBYE.

We should have taken Rufie in last week, but we waited until Granny Daze was over.  Here's a photo of Rufus with his five best friends!!!

And that's the way it is...........................................


  1. Another beautiful baby on Rainbow Bridge......what a joy for all of us it will be when we can once again join, peace, and a hug to you.......

  2. Oh, I'm sorry to hear about Rufus. The only thing sadder would be to watch him suffer.

  3. I know you will miss Rufus. Thinking of you during this sad time. I know he had a wonderful life.

  4. Oh Dear, I am so sorry. But happy that Rufus has been put out of his misery...

  5. I am so sorry..but as pet owners we know that when old age comes and they are suffering we have to do what is best for them..but it sucks. He will be running through the grass waiting at the bridge for you... I have a whole group waiting there and it never gets easier. Sending you a hug:)

  6. Hi Muffy...If it wasn't that I was expecting a repair man to arrive in 5 minutes I would be crying like a baby, the Put Me to Rest is very touching...I am so sorry you had to do this,but I do know the feeling! I good decision to wait for the grandkids to leave !!
    Hugs of comfort !!!

  7. I am so sorry. It is so hard because these furry friends are such a precious part of our families. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

  8. I can't write this for the tears flowing down my cheeks. I am sooo sorry my dear friend that you had to let him go. I loved seeing his precious face each time I visited with you. You have our sincere love, and all the hugs we can muster!

  11. I am so very sorry. You did the right but hardest thing a pet owner ever has to do. I will try to remember those words when I am faced with the same thing.

  12. I am so very sorry--that is the hardest thing to do, we've been there! May your memories be of comfort to you.

  13. So sorry , we had to put down our 13 year old Buddy last spring , leaves a big hole in our heart but wonderful memories. Take care.

  14. I'm so sorry for your loss. I hope time mends your broken hearts.

  15. Oh, catching up and saw this. SO sorry for your loss of your beloved pet. This is inevitable but always sad after a life of loving us....

  16. Oh so darn sad! Very very hard!

  17. He'll be waiting at the bridge. Thinking of you.

  18. So very sorry -- I'm just in tears reading this. I know he's in a better place, though.
