When I can no longer wag my tail And walk with you along the sylvan trail You will know and I will know that it is time to go.
When my body is weary and I canít get up Before I loose my dignity and presence You will know and I will know it is time to go.
I cannot talk to you and I cannot write to you My eyes and my face are my only way to tell you That I know and I know you know, it is time to go.
So remember me when I was a pup When I could romp and run When I was young and fun Now that I am on my side and canít get up You know and I know, it is time to go.
So give me one last hug Rub my old tired old head and feel my soft ears Shed a few tears for me, if I could cry I would do the same for you And you will know and I will know it is time to go.
When I an gone tomorrow, remove my bowl Remove my toys and remove my bed Keep my picture beside your head Put me in your memory and say goodbye You and I know it is time to go
It is best for you and for me to know when to go I canít help myself; you must do it for me I donít want to stay in this condition, nor would you It is too sad for you and too hard for me my dearest friend
As difficult as it is for you to do I leave it up to you to know When it is time to go.
I know that you know that I know It is now time for me to go.
