Angel's in Heaven

Her name was Angel
She was named for everything she was not
She was not human
But a sweet little five pound dog that saved my grandparents life
She gave them reason to get up in the morning
She gave them a reason to move around through the day
She gave them a reason to keep on going
To still ride a bike at the age of 85
Angel wore birthday hats at parties
Christmas bows on her ears
She had her own party blower at News Years
And her own towels with her name on them
Her favorite food was ice cream
She is part of a long line of loving doggie friends my family has had
Max, George, Callie, Vixen and now Angel
She was the first pet my grandmother had in sixty-five years
She has gone to heaven now
After fighting five days for her life against a disease that turned her own antibodies on her
Please pray for healing and comfort for my grandparents
Whom begged me to tell everyone they were doing good with her
And they were
Another Angel is in Heaven
Goodnight, sweet Angel, Goodnight.

it's so very hard to say goodbye to pets we love. They are such a big part of our lives and so hard to let go.

sorry for you and your family's loss.
