Well a few weeks ago he became ill.
Recently he got worse.
He couldn't stand upright.
His head tilted to one side.
We looked after him as best we could.
The vet said he looked healthy.
But there wasn't much she could do.
On Saturday he was injected with steriods.
We thought he began to look better.
But we were wrong.
Sunday he got worse.
We held him and cried.
Because we knew if he didn't get better by Monday that was it.
We wrapped him in a towel and go to the Vets.
I sit in a waiting room not really taking anything in...
Just clutching my baby close
Then his name was called...
I stood up shaking
We went in but i could tell by the vet's face it wasn't good
She said it wasn't fair to make him suffer
My mum agreed and that was it.
I couldn't speak.
"Do you want to say goodbye?" the vet asked
I nodded and picked him up and held him close.
"I love you!" i whispered and kissed his head
Then the tears came pouring down.
He looked scared and confused.
As she took him away i whispered "and i always will!"
Then i collapsed on a seat and let my tears overwhelm me.
My body shook with the sobs
I couldn't breathe it hurt so much
She came back with him wrapped up.
I stumbled through reception bareley able to see
We took his box to the car and went home
I snuck a glance at his body
And at last he looked peaceful.
He was buried later today
R.I.P Velvet Always and Forever i will remember you my little fighter
