Sir Independence Scott Shay (Indy) is my
family's 13 yr old Yellow Labrador. He was born on the fourth
of July in the year 1992. Within the last 3 days his health changed dramatically. His face became
swollen and my mother took him to the vet. The vet pulled a tooth and then declared Indy had a tumor on the
roof of his mouth. If we were to get the tumor removed,
they would have to remove half of his face as well.
This letting him live another 6 months. His face is
definitely one of his greatest attributes, we picked
him from the litter because he had the biggest
head and the biggest paws. If we left the tumor alone,
it would grow over the course of time and eventually
suffocate him. Both answers from the vet seemed
there was no happy ending for either of us, Indy or my
family. So, we decided it would be in his best
nature to be put down, much to the chagrin of us as his
family as well as everyone else who knew Indy.
touched everyone he came into contact with in some
shape or form and always had a light about him,
sad, never judged, played when we played, listened
when we talked, loved when we laughed... No matter
what other puppy comes into my life I know none of
them will be as important to me as Indy is. I can
hope and pray he is waiting by the Rainbow Bridge
our wonderful reunion.
I remember bringing him
He was so small and cuddly with his tiny paws and
fur.He bounced around the room with eyes flashing
ears flopping. Ever since that day my love grew
Indy, and honest to God if he were human I
married years ago.
So thanks to my boy, for a
of love... and Dear God, let me see him in heaven
above! But for now Lord, please hold him, watch
his rest... if he wakes in Your arms tell him I
him best. We love you Indy... stay forever young
baby... you'll never be forgotten.
