My sweet NoNo
This is dedicated to my beautiful German Shepherd, Nola.
She came to me via a friend of mine who worked at the animal shelter.
She was six years old at the time and was a beautiful and devoted German Shepherd to me. She watched over me, let me cry into her fur, ran and chased the squirrels in my back yard, ran as fast as the wind at times!!!
We had long walks together. How she loved to walk!
It has been four years and she has become my child.
I can no longer watch her as she tries to drag herself to get up. She has severe lumbosacral arthritis and is in constant pain. I do not want to let her go, but, I refuse to see her in pain.
To my Nola or NoNo as I called you most times… you will always be in my heart. I will miss you so very, very, much my sweet girl. I will be holding you in my lap and letting you know how much I love you and will kiss your nose one last time before you cross over.
Please, sweet girl, wait for me when my time on this earth is over. Know that you were and always be loved and forever in my heart.
God speed my NoNo.........
