Skye Ackles by Katelyn Ackles / Katelyn, Jarrod, Grams, Mom, and Jody

I had to let you go today,
I could no longer hold on to you because you weren’t ok.
I know it was the right thing to do,
but selfishly I wanted to still hold onto you.

I watched as you wagged your tail for the last time,
and I saw that last little pupple smile.
I waited until they took you out the door,
and then I started to cry.

I was remembering all of the good memories we made,
and how you always licked away my tears.
And once again i wanted to hold onto you selfishly.

I know it was hard for you to hold on,
once you saw your best friend Jewl pass away.
I thank you for at least holding on two months,
since our last dog Jewl left us this way.

so now I’ll keep on remembering,
the walks and the hugs that took place.
and never will I forget you,
or the feeling that I felt when they took you away.

RIP Skye… I’ll miss your hugs, your humanlike smiles, and all the joy you brought to our lives. Its going to be hard but I want you to know that you were always loved. Thank you for coming into Jarrods life and letting him have a friend who could understand his every feeling. You will never be forgotten but will always be loved. Go on home to Jewl and wait for all of us.


With love and with hugs,
Skye Ackles
