Brandy's last update - Page 2  

post #31 of 46
Thread Starter 
Based on recent events: (apparant health deterioration, even though she's still so "happy") It will be Sat. July 11 that Brandy will be set free of her pain.


She still acts happy, but after she sneezed blood and has been rubbing her nose so much today, we don't want to prolong it.

I want to share some happy stories, but first I am going to allow my daughter Kendra to join this site and post.

Oh Chris, I'm so sorry, especially after another so recent blow with little Pax.
You have my full support, and can talk to me any time. You are doing the right thing, the best thing for Brandy. Putting her needs before your own (of course we want to hold on to them) is the best, most selfless thing you can do, and it shows what a wonderful person you are. Knowing that this in inoperable, letting her go while she's still happy, especially as that time is going to be limited severely, the timing is just right. You're doing right by your beautiful girl.

I'm sitting hear finishing some messages with DH, and just thinking.

I'm gonna miss Brandy's snoring LOL. It's annoying when you are trying to concentrate, but I am sooooo gonna miss it.

There's lots of things I'm going to miss about my sweet pup.

She's very protective of the front door. Anytime anyone comes up on the step she barks her fool head off (could be the kids, or even me and she can see through the window). Our neighbours know, they don't have to ring the doorbell, they just come to the door and Brandy lets us know

She dug a hole in our wall.... I'm not sure I'll repair it right away.... It's from her back feet. She kicks her feet as she's dreaming... it started off as a scratch, but its now a fair sized hole and completely through the sheet of drywall LOL.

She doesn't know many tricks, and she won't walk on a collar.... We had to use a halti, otherwise she just pulled and pulled. But she was so much fun going for walks with.

Fireworks scare her, but that's bout it for her fears.

I am so not ready for this.

Tomorrow morning we will all drive out to my inlaw's place......me and my girls in one vehicle, Mark in the other (he won't let me drive his car ).

We'll play with Brandy, and leave her with my DH. She'll be happy and barking, and wagging her fool tail off LOL. That will be our last memory of her. Ignoring the huge lump on her face, she's the same ol pup she ever was...slightly slower in her old age.

She has known so much love in her life time, and for that I am so thankful. I would like to think she knows I'm doing the right thing.

I wish I was like my husband in a sense. He is much more logical and rational, whereas I am emotional, and rationality seems to be an afterthought. Mark is going to miss Brandy too, but he, in every aspect of his life, is an if it's gotta be done, get it done type of person. He doesn't get the emotional attachment like I do. Yes he cares about Brandy, and he is sad her time in this life is over, but he knows we need to do this and because of that, he is slightly detached from it.

You know, I think this is why I love my snakes. I've had more heartache in the last month's time due to furry pets, than I have in my many years of owning reptiles, and yes I've lost snakes, had to euthanise a bearded dragon, euthanise babies that have no chance of survival, etc. There is not the emotional attachment there....

She knows, believe me, she knows you are doing the right thing.
It is best to leave this place for another being a "Happy and barking, and wagging her fool tail off" doggie than to leave it another way.
My heart is breaking for you, I have been where you are, questioning, letting my emotions get me, knowing what needs to be done, but wanting it just NOT be happening. I would not wish what you are going through on anyone.
To your daughter if she is reading Be strong, but let yourself be sad, Its Ok to cry your eyes out, it's part of going through this. It's OK to not cry if you don't want to. Know that you and your family did all you guys could do and that this is the best thing you could do for her now. It is soooo hard to deal with, but you will all get through it, though it seem so horrible now, it will get better.

For all.

I'm sorry that you are going through this. But you are doing right by her.

Enjoy your time together and build some more happy memories with your sweet girl.

The right decisions are often the hardest to make and the hardest to take. You are doing the right thing for her. You are doing it the right way, leaving yourselves with happy memories of a wonderful, beautiful member of the family to whom you gave everything you could and who loves you for caring for her - and for making this decision she can't make.

My heart is breaking for you & your family!!! I will have to make the same hard choice soon, and when I do I will tell my Tyler to find Brandy when he crosses. You have been in my thoughts all wek, and you will be in my prayers tonight. Be comfortable n your choice, you are doing the right thing! Please give Brandy a hug from me.
