Twinkles

Post by Shisa on Mon May 26, 2014 12:47 pm

Today I took my OldLady and gave her, her rest.
Over the last week she's gone downhill at an alarming rate. She won't eat, won't drink and doesn't get up for toilet.
If I get some food in her she vomits most up again.

Yesterday she was standing in a bit of sun and gave me this look... it said I am tired now.

Rest in peace little Old Lady. I wish we had found each other earlier so I could have saved you more hardship.

Treacherous heart beats strong
While the body withers
And the spirit grows tired.

You will be missed.

Oh, Theresa, I'm so sorry. Words are inadequate, but you know you gave her peace, love and purpose in her twilight years.

RIP Twinkles, run free sweet angel.

Doesn't make it easier. It's amazing how big a gap such a small dog can leave.

It sounds like she was an amazing dog. I know there's probably nothing anybody could say that would help in this situation, but my thoughts are with you. If you ever need to talk/vent, please do.

So sorry for your loss Theresa. Such a difficult thing to go through even though you know it's right.

Thank you everyone.
I today realised I had her exactly 15months, almost to the hour.
Tomorrow I will wash and pack up all her things and put them away for the next little old lady or man that needs a warm, comfy spot for their last days.

I think that every time you loose a pet it's sadder as you cry for all you've lost. You cope better and deal with it better but you feel the loss more.

She is better off and has made friends with all my babies waiting at Rainbow bridge.

It's nice that those 15 months were the best of her life. You did an amazing thing by taking her in and should be very proud of yourself!

I am SO sorry Shisa. Even when you know you've given her the best 15 months of her life, and eased her passing into the next world, you will still grieve - we are all here in virtual support as you come to terms with your loss  hug   hug   hug 

Rest in peace Twinkles xxxx
