|Kyle August 11 1988 to January 12 2003
I said goodbye to my best friend today
I was the hardest thing I ever did.
Kyle is now at the bridge
Debra, Kyle(at the bridge) and Tiny (his sister still with me)
Your name on Earth was Kyle,
Debra was your mother,
And I know she loved you more and more,
She loves you like no other.
Now your name is Angel,
And what a sight you are,
I see you every single night,
When I look up at the stars.
We see you running wild and free,
We hear you singing song,
We feel your presence with us,
We feel it all day long.
I think I'll call you Angel Kyle,
That sounds good to me,
Even though we miss you so,
We know you're healthy as can be.
You take care, our Angel Kyle,
We'll see you soon old friend,
And we'll take care of Debra for you,
Until you meet again.

Suggestions from Debra for an Emergency Kit
Here are some things I thought might be useful in case of emergencies
Things you may need when you have a diabetic pet
Digestive enzymes powder (promotes good intestinal health) this can
in a health food store, vets, or Walmart brand name Dr. GoodPet
^^^^^^^^^^For when they won't eat, or for Hypo^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
when they go Hypoglycemic (in case of hypo first give caro syrup or
syrup rub into gums and on tongue if you can, continue to do so until
comes to. Then see if he/she will eat if not force feed.
If you have a
glucometer, monitor him/her closely, if you don't have one get your
to the emergency ASAP!
Feeding syringe (ask vet)
Baby food (meat and broth types)
Pablum (prefferably rice cereal) mix in with the baby food to force
Glucerna (specially formatted for diabetic people) (this is optional
have a feeding syringe and the abve foods)
Keopectate pills or liquid (for diarrhea) dosage is the same as for
adult person as for a dog who weighs 53lbs,
sorry don't know about cats
in case of dehydration, use with a feeding syringe or use in water
Peptobismol tablets or liquid (this eases nausea)
Metoclopramide tablets (ask vet, this is an appetite stimulant, it
eases nausea )
