Shamus - you may be gone from sight but not from my heart
Posted 18 May 2012 - 09:25 AM
He tried to be brave and learn his way around the house after he suddenly lost his sight but his memory of what he
learned the day before just didn't work. He was a pin ball bouncing off the walls when he couldn't find his way. In the
end Shamus grew tired of the confusion and though there was no sight in his eyes I knew when he looked at me he
was asking to be let go.
He laid beside me as we made the trip to his vet quietly wimpering and shaking under his favorite blanket. And though he
had spent the night at the vet's just a few weeks earlier he did not remember. Dr. Luzi helped settle him in my lap and talked in quiet tones to Shay while all the time his heart was breaking too.
He lays beneath the willow trees on our acreage. Even though it was cloudy and threatening to rain, a ray of sunshine
shown on him as I laid him to rest.

"One of the unspoken truths of American life is how deeply people grieve over animals who live and die
with them, how real the emptiness is, how profound is the silence these creatures leave in their wake."
