Xena...You were my very best friend & the most important part of my life! The house is empty and quiet without you. You are constantly on my mind, and I feel your spirit always beside me. You had the most beautiful face I've ever seen in a German Shepherd, people would walk up to me and say how gorgeous you were...even your vet would take your head in her hands and tell me that you had a beautiful, "classic" face.
You were my ears, my nose, my eyes...my everything! I never once felt alone or scared knowing you were watching over me 24 hours a day.
You went through a lot this past year, and I went through every stage of the Degenerative Myelopathy journey with you. People told me that I should have you put down...even the vet said it was time to let you go, but I knew you weren't ready YET, and I carried on looking after you the best I could. The light finally left your eyes, and you gave up on living on May 12th/2010. That's when I knew I had to make the most horrible decision of having you put to sleep. You crossed the Rainbow Bridge at 8:59 am. and now you are whole again! You are not in pain....you can run and jump & play, you are able to stand up and walk again!
Xena...Remain on alert up there, and wait for Mommy to arrive...and we will never ever be apart again!
Remember this! I can hardly wait until we are together for eternity, and I can put my arms around you & hug & kiss you and never let go.
I LOVE YOU FOREVER...NO DOG WILL EVER TAKE YOUR PLACE. YOU ARE #1
