when i asked my parents and the vet to leave me alone with him, he was laying down..and he barley had any strength left but he picked his head up and looked at me and whinned. it just broke my heart. i sat down and he layed his head in my lap, and i told him it was okay top let go, and i told him i was going to be alright. i thanked him for everything he had done for me, and i told him i would never forget him. the we had to take him outta his stall and i brought him in the sunlight and i let him eat grass..and then i had to say my last goodbye. ever scense i was little i told him" you are a great champion, when u ran the ground shook, the sky opend, and mere mortals parted.parted the way to victory, where ill meet u in the winners circle and put a blanket of flowers on your back." so i told him that one last time. he raped his head around my body and i hugged him. i gave him one last kiss on the nose, to feel his warm breath one last time. i couldnt stay to watch so my dad stayed their with him and my mom took me home. but when i was walking away to the car, he wouldnt stop looking at me..and whinning to me. he whinned till i was all the way down the drive way, and my dad said that he vever stoped looking for me. i miss him so much i cant even explain it.
