I will never forget

I will never forget playing football with you. Throwing it down the hall and you sliding for it.
I will never forget the way you launched out the door to get the squirrels.
I will never forget all the "going bye bye in the car" rides.
I will never forget sitting in the chairs looking out the window with you.
I will never forget the courage you had when you faced blindness.
I will never forget the unconditional love you gave me.
I will never forget you Paris.

I am beyond grief.
I had Paris put to sleep this morning.
He had the worse night ever. I talked to him and promised I would never let him suffer like that.

I have a few more things to share in the days to come.
Thanks for being there for Paris and for me.



    I have done mostly what men do,
    And pushed it out of my mind;
    But I can't forget, if I wanted to,
    Four-Feet trotting behind.

    Day after day, the whole day through--
    Wherever my road inclined--
    Four-Feet said, 'I am coming with you!'
    And trotted along behind.

    Now I must go by some other round--
    Which I shall never find--
    Some where that does not carry the sound
    Of Four-Feet trotting behind.

  2. I have been crying on and off all day since I heard. Its so hard to let go of a loyal, devoted friend - there will never be another Paris.

    I want to reach out and hug you and your family so badly because what you are faced with right now is the worst moment any dog lover will go through.

    I'm so very sorry for your loss and I know I will never forget Paris either. As far away as I am from where you are, Paris had touched my life for the better in so many ways I can't express my gratitude for allowing me into your lives.

    I will never forget how much I looked forward to checking in here on a daily basis to see how he was doing and the lessons he was teaching us all through you that life with a blind dog is very rewarding.

    Its been a joy and privelage to get to know you and Paris through this website and I wish you will have each and every wonderful memory of your beautiful boy last with you the rest of your life.

  3. It has been a long time since I've visited your blog. I was hoping that Paris was doing better. I lost my own Heidi after a long battle with blindness, Cushing's Disease and kidney failure. Perhaps her and Paris are playing together now and waiting for us...I like to think that anyways...*Hugs*

  4. Thanks Nan, It has been a long lonely 10 months since Paris's passing. I am so glad his blog continues to touch people's lives. I would like to think Paris is off playing painfree with his friends also. A nice thought. THank you for thinking of us.
