I feel sorry for you.... *hugs*

LiGruess cara ~~~ Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!"

I'm so sorry to hear Mikki. I know how hard it must be. I'm still crying for my little one that's gone too.

Thank you everyone for your kind words. I've never had to make the decision to put a pet to sleep and I wasn't even close to being ready for the way I feel.

Miki - I feel terrible at your loss. Our pets become such a part of our life that it really hurts when we loose them.

Focus on that your boy is not suffering any more ans try to take solace in that.

One difference between a cook and a chef is that the cook mows the lawn, while the bread is rising.

you have suffered a huge loss. allow yourself time to grieve and cry. it takes a while to adjust to a pet being gone. and even longer to think about a new one. tears and hugs, babe

I have a hard time replying to things like this, I had to put my 13 yr old cat down due to kidney failure. My thoughts are with you, you can never be prepared for it, but the pain will ease with time, my only comfort was knowing that she wasnt suffering anymore.
Hugs to you & your family!

Nothing is sadder than to say good-bye to an old, dear cherished fur child.........it's heart-breaking..........one of my friends had to say good-bye to her old Brownie, a chocolate lab, and I'm so glad that I was with her.........she just kept stroking him and talking softly in his ear (her first fur child) and I was crying as the vet injected the medicine and then she fell sobbing into my arms........my last cat who left us died outside in her beloved garden........she loved to sniff flowers, sit under bushes, and chase butterflies........that's the way I want to go..........so my deepest sympathies for your loss
The only difference between a "cook" and a "Chef" is who cleans up the kitchen.
