My best friend for the last twelve year are gone...

Owning a dog is mostly filled with positive experiences, but one day a decision must be taken of me as the owner.
I have promised myself that in this situation never be selfish, to think of my dogs best and let my best friend have a dignified end. It is my duty as dogowners.
With my eyes filled with tears, I would now say that Viktor, my best friend the last twelve years, one quarter of my life now is gone.
Viktor has had a long, happy and healthy life and we have shared many fun and happy moments together.
In this difficult moment, there's still a sense of peace in my internal because I know he can sleep now, without pain and suffering.
Viktor I miss you so much, and it is a huge gap in our flock without you. But you will live on through your children, grandchildren and great grandchildren and I will always see some of you in them.
We miss you so much our dear friend,
/Your flock

hi kristina so very very sorry to read about your victor,you and your family are in our thoughts.please find a little comfort in this poem ive found on internet.
If it should be....
If it should be that I grow frail and weak,
and pain should keep me from my sleep,
then you must do what must be done,
for we know this last battle can't be won.

You will be sad, I understand,
but don't let grief then stay your hand,
for this day, more than the rest,
your love and friendship must stand the test.

We've had so many happy years,
what is to come can hold no fears.
Would you want me to suffer? So,
when the time comes, please let me go.

Take me where my needs they'll tend,
only stay with me until the end,
and hold me firm and speak to me,
until my eyes no longer see.

It is a kindness that you do to me,
although my tail it's last has waved,
from pain and suffering I have been saved.

Do not grieve, it should be you,
who must decide this thing to do.
We've been so close, we two these years,
Don't let your heart hold any tears.
