a pet's will & testament

If you don't want to biggify, it says (and feel free to replace dog w/cat):

Before humans die, they write their last Will & Testament, give their home & all they have,
to those they leave behind.  if, with my paws, I could do the same, this is what I'd ask...

To a poor lonely stray I'd give:

  • My happy home.
  • My boy & cozy bed, soft pillows and all my toys.
  • The lap, which I loved so much.
  • The hand that stroked my fur & the sweet voice which spoke my name.
I'd Will to the sad, scared shelter dog, the place I had in my
human's loving heart, of which there seemed no bounds.

So, when I die, please do not say, "I will never have a
pet again, for the loss and pain is more then I can stand."

Instead, go find an unloved dog, one whose life has
held no joy or hope and give MY place to HIM.

This is the only thing I can give..
               The love I left behind.

  1. Oh, this has made me cry.

    I still vacillate between adopting again and not ever doing so:

    "I will never have a pet again, for the loss and pain is more then I can stand."

    Beautiful "will and testament."

  2. Awwww, I love it!

  3. Connie, just got your comments and I'm guessing Emily's SIL has decided not to keep up the blog.

    I have a question for you. Were you ever involved in the Owl Box? Just curious.

    Also, have you ever considered enabling your email on your blog?

  4. I'm in puddles.

    I can't imagine not having a furfriend. I even scoped out, and chose, a retirement community that puts no specific limit on the number of pets because I'd like to continue to foster. (Not going for years yet, but I've got a deposit in.)

  5. oooh please tell me where that home is, cause I am so going to join you there!!
