hope sinks at the end of a life but it floats for a new and better beginning.

sadly, I will have to phone the clinics today and arrange for the best way to help crash with his passing. I am afraid he is not going to get up again, I think his back end is too weak now and I cannot leave him long term as he is.
crash is such a good boy...sweet, innocent, not very bright and a little bit irritating as far as buddy is concerned. crash never really understood why his back end did not work as well as it should...his front end carried him forward with such reliable power but his hind parts simply fell over..this was occasionally inconvenient to him. so many things that he loved to do..the best was relentlessly barking and chasing buddy around in the bottom field. he hasn't been able to that for more than a year now and I know he misses that odd kind of fun greatly.
I am not sure how or why he ended up in animal control or where he originally came from. I have no idea what was his name that he lived with for so long before he became "crash" as an unclaimed stray. I don't even know how old he really is or how his back became so weak..was it a long ago injury or just due to old age?
really I know very little about crash and his very long life, only this last little bit that he has lived here.
but I do know the heart of this beautiful dog.... kind, gentle, and filled with welcoming trust for all that he meets.
I do not know what follows the end of this life but I hope it is filled with the lightness of peace. crash has lived simply and he has lived well, to the very best of his pure hearted, accepting and patient abilities. he deserves to enjoy just the simple and uncomplicated lightness of being.
you are such a good dog crash, I am so hoping for a very peaceful and gentle end and a new bright and beautiful beginning.
we love you.
