Look, cheer up!!
I'm an old grisel'd Special Forces master sergeant, and a life long cat
man.., but a dog has been there sleeping with the herd several times.
Thinking in military terms, the saga of the resurrection is that we will
be raised from the dead and live again.., and not only live, but reign as
Rulers over any number of "cities."
When I must "put to sleep" one my children, or have died in the line of
duty.., I extend the same promise to them that God has extended to me..!
That wherever I wind up, they shall also be there in the future as I will
have the power and authority to "make it so."
It seems to help knowing we will see and love each other again.., and
they will run, leap, and jump with the joy of renewal, and youth!!
So cheer up.., hold your eyes straight and do what has to be done. When
my Maincoon Teddy got kidney problems and was suffering so much.., he
understood what hed to be done..!
I gave him a full military burial in the backyard right where he used to
lay and guard his territory! Now he is waiting quitly swishing his tail for
that blessed day of renewal..!!
That's been my standing general order for Stinky, Tonya, Teddy, Poncho,
Tina, Emily, King Henry.., and myself.. for our team reunion to come!!
May His peace be with you..., and toughen up.., get'n old ain't for
