Pac,
I had to do the same for my beloved cocker, Brewster at Christmas many years ago. He was 11 and suffering from bone cancer in his shoulder. There was nothing they could do and he was suffering. I stayed with him until the end to see the quiet peace on his face. Even though I have new dogs I love, I still miss him.

Gentle hugs, my friend. RIP Tursa, you were very much loved. By the way, she is beautiful. Thank you for sharing this with us.

Having to say goodbye to a loyal and loving friend is the hardest thing in the world, isn't it, Pac. RIP, beautiful Tursa.

I'm truly sorry for your loss and the pain it brings. Saying good bye to an old friend is never easy.

They're more than just pets aren't they?

pac, so sorry for the loss of your beautiful dog, tursa. the time of her leaving was chosen with great love and sadness by you, her master, responding to her signals and physical signs with which she totally trusted you. surrounded by a profound love, tursa has gone as she must, and only when another birthday would have been just too difficult to manage....

both of your lives were made richer and more fulfilled by having had each other in them. you will lose people who mean less to your heart than this beautifully dappled dog with love in her eyes, and an intimate interest in your every move. peace be with you at this christmas time, and beyond....
