When this mortality is over, and we all have passed over to the other side, I will have deer freinds to shake hands with, to hug, and to laugh with. I may never get the chance to meet many of you in person, while here in mortality, but we will meet. You are my brothers and sisters, and I will know you. My spirit will call out in recognition and joy.

Thank all of you for your heart-felt compassion. Now, go and give your prayers and love to Marge. Kaysee is at the end of her days, and there is nothing left to do but say goodbye. John still has a fighting chance.

I am so sorry to hear about your dog - Jolie is a person to me - not a dog. Is there anything that the vet can do?

My sincere sympathies, Goodweed. We lost our dog 3 years ago and still miss her. As my friend told us, you give new meaning to the term "lucky dog"

Animals are family!!

I am so sorry my friend. I know how it hurts to loose a family pet.
May I always be the person my dog thinks I am.

Walk towards the Sunshine and the Shadows will fall behind you!

I'm so sorry to hear about Kaysee. It is hard to lose an important part of the family.

I grew up almost literally, at at times literally, in a zoo.

Was taught to deal with animals, from poisonous snakes to jaguars (and we had both in our house, believe it or not) since I was weaned.

And have had to put down many animals, yes personally. No I am not a vet but we had the stuff available to us.

Always was very sad when we had to put one down.

But there are times when it is the kindest thing to do.

My fil refused to do so, have seen a once robust, and nasty, cat, a shell of itself, pulling itself across the floor with its forelegs, the poor animal's hind legs no longer being functional.

Fil refused to put it to sleep even though it was clearly in pain.

He thought he was being kind, he was not. He just could not deal with the reality that death is something that awaits us all, and euthanasia for animals at times is appropriate and kind.

The cocktail the vets use today is very fast and painless.

It is always difficult to lose a pet but knowing when to end the pain is part of the obligation one accepts when taking on the care of an animal.

Just my take on things. Am sorry to hear about your dog.

GW... I'm sorry to read about Kaysee... it hurts my heart to know that you are having to face this. I love my pets as if they are members of the family, then are little individuals in my family and are always considered in every decision made. With that said, I will pray for Kaysee, I pray that she is healed, but if that is not the case, I pray for a peaceful passing, for both her and your family GW. It is not easy... see my avatar?? I had to put him down 3 years ago and it was not easy. Please keep us posted, you know we are here for you.

For Kaysee

"Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray this cushy life to keep.

I pray for bones and smelly things,
And posh couches with good springs.

I pray for gourmet doggy snacks,
And someone to scratch my back.

For good trees and lots of walks,
For garden beds and chewy stalks.

I pray I'll always stay real cool,
And keep the secret canine rule.

To never tell humans and mogs,
The world is really ruled by Dogs"

I feel so sad to hear about Kaysee
