I am so terribly sorry for your loss. I'm just in tears, poor sweet boy. You absolutely did the right thing and can be sure he didn't suffer needlessly.
What a lovely gesture from the hospital - that in itself made me cry all over again. Ares was a fortunate boy that he had so many people who loved him.
Rest In Peace darling Ares. Look after your Mummy from your special place over the Rainbow Bridge.
*hugs* I didnt mean to make so many people cry. But he touched so many..even at work..everyone thought he was so special and all they did was hear stories about him. I had not yet brought him in to meet everyone.
The hospital staff had never met him before either, until that day
but they to loved him. Before they took him to the back..for treatment when we got there he put his paw to my nose. I know now that was his way of saying goobye mummy. and i will be waiting.
such a sweet precious.
I know we did the right thing. Its just so hard on those of us left behind. Steve asked me, "why do we do this? why do we attach ourselves, and why do we keep opening our hearts to another..when we know someday..what will happen"
I told him because without them, without their presence we wouldnt have those tiny joyus moments that will carry us through without them. and we wouldnt be who we are today. I will forever have my moments with Ares to cherish. when we would sit in bed together watching late night tv eating a popcicle, when he stole my crisper so now i only have one in the fridge. he greeted me every morning, and followed me when I was home. No one can take those from me.
Here i got writting a novel again.....
