Leave Like Neptune

I was reminded recently of how Neptune our favored Black Lab left this world. He knew he was dying. He was a dog and they know when it's their time. He told us it was his time. The day we took him to the vet to end his life was one of the happiest days he had in a long time. He walked from the car to the vet office wagging his tail. He barked at and chased the birds. He had a big chocolate cookie. On the vet table knowing this was it, he gave our son Marco a huge lick across the face. When I looked into his eyes there was a calm to him. Those eyes told me it was a good life.

We should all be able to leave this world wagging our tail.

It's a good life.....
