to help moses finish his journey here.



Goodbye sweet Moses. You found a gentle home near the end of your journey filled with people who love you. They have realized that it's time to say goodbye although it is painful to let you go. Pass swiftly Moses onto the next step of your pathway, and look back at the people who loved you enough to say goodbye. Hugs carol and to all of you who obviously loved Moses so much!


Peace my heart...

Peace, my heart, let the time for the parting be sweet.
Let it not be a death but completeness.
Let love melt into memory and pain into songs.
Let the flight through the sky end in the folding of the wings over the nest.
Let the last touch of your hands be gentle like the flower of the night.
Stand still, O Beautiful End, for a moment, and say your last words in silence.
I bow to you and hold up my lamp to light you on your way.

~Rabindranath Tagore


You have made a wise choice my friend. Moses is ready to go. Watching him the past little while, i think part of him is aready crossing. He's just holding on long enough for his body to release. Lots of hugs to both of you.


moses loves you mo, i think even more than he loves me.
and isn't it nice that an old, lost dog floating down the fraser river found so much love from so many people at his journey's end.

i will try to get kathy to help me take him for a run in the morning, and we have a box of timbits from cathie and john for him to enjoy too.

he will have a gentle peaceful passing, i promise.


I also said my goodbyes to Moses yesterday, and hold dear that image of him sacked out on his futon last night, eyes watching as I sat and talked with him and wished him a happy forever after.
And I am so very thankful that we had the fun we did feeding him treats on Saturday afternoon. He is a dear and precious soul and I will never forget him.
May your journey be smooth, Moses, and may you run free at the Bridge with those who have passed before you.
{hugs} Carol, I'll be thinking of you and Moses tomorrow.


About 15 minutes ago I was thinking about Moses & how much I will miss him.. and I come to the site.. to read your post that was posted about 15 minutes ago.
Yesterday I made sure to spend some " alone " time with Moses & before I left,I spent some more time with him on his futon, it was hard to leave SAINTS & my last look before going through the gate, was into his eyes as he stood in the yard watching me leave... I cried most of the way home .

Thank You Carol for giving Moses to all of us that come to volunteer, go gently Moses & come back for visits.
