Katie: A Very Good Dog

We lost our Katie, i.e., Miss Kate, i.e, Katy-Did, today. May she rest in peace.

Most high, almighty Lord, our Creator,
yours are the praise, the glory, the honour and all blessings! To
you alone do all things belong. Be praised for giving
us the animals, birds and fish which fill your world.
May we think of you and thank you when we play with and
care for our pets. Be praised for making us so happy
to have our pets. We ask
you, Lord, that we may be good to our pets always, so
that they may be happy also. Help us always to take
care of them so that they will be healthy. O God, your
world is wonderful. May we all come into your even
greater world of the kingdom of heaven where we shall
see even more wonderful things and where we shall live
and love for ever. This we ask to your eternal praise,
and to our blessing. Amen
.

Gosh, I'm so sorry! Losing a pet is rough. They become sucha part of our lives and families. And with FT's health concerns right now, I can't imagine what y'all are feeling.

I'll be praying for you and FT, on all fronts.

This just sucks. I am so, so sorry that you and FT have this additional burden and grief on top of the anxiety over FTs illness. You are both very much in my prayers.

I know the pain of losing a beloved animal companion. My prayers are with you.

Peace,

I'm very sorry for your loss. Peace to you in this time of grief.

P.S. an after-thought said...

That's a hard one. I've had a couple of good dogs through the years. One was 17 and had had about 9 lives, surviving several traumas. The cat lived to age 19. It is very strange to have no pets for the last year, but I need to be free of that type of responsibility. But I miss a fuzzy companion. [I don't miss the fish that wouldn't die until they were over 10 years old.]

I am so very sorry. I'm crying. Sweet Katie.
I've been praying for y'all and will especially be thinking of FT when she goes to the doctor tomorrow.

I am really sorry to hear that. Losing a pet is much harder than non-pet people think.
