And so she's gone.....

My lovely white faced furry baby left this world today. She and I knew it was time for her to go but we let the other humans in the house keep us going on with the medication and the episodic seizures. Last night she couldn't catch her breath and after the seizure she looked up at me and I knew I should get a good night's sleep for the decision I had made.

We have a vet who came to the house, housecalls, what a concept. Anyway, we love Barb. I called her this morning to ask if she could meet me at one of the clinics she subs for vets on vacation and sure enough she was working at one 2 minutes from here.

Willow said her goodbyes to the grands, to SM and Shelley and she and I had our last car ride together.

Thanks for all your support during our "thinking" time.

She is now running and playing with her brother Murphy, just waiting for us to join them. I am at peace with letting her go but will grieve deeply for a life cut way too short by and unseen and unexpected something.

Rest in peace my Fat Elvis, my Large Marge, my mena, mena, Willowmena, my bestest and sweetest. I will miss your sweet face and gentle manner......the whole family will.


  1. So to sorry to hear about your baby. Many of us who have made that same decision to help our family pets move on to the next plane of existence know how horribly you feel right now. You did the right thing, Linda, and I know you hurting so much, but I do believe when our time arrives they will be waiting with wags and licks and ready to play again

    Love ya, lady,

  2. So sorry for your loss...we do love our 'missed' ones...

  3. Big hug, so sorry you are going through this.
    We do so love our fur babies, my DH always says that the only grief our dogs give us is when they leave us.

  4. To all of you who so lovingly commented....thank you. I welcome the lovely thoughts. (((hugs))))

  5. I'm so very sorry to hear about the loss of your beloved furbaby. I have buried 3 of my boxer babies over the years and it never gets easy does it? I've made an angel garden in my backyard with stones with their names on it, it soothes my soul to have a visual reminder of a beautiful place to sit and remember them. Blessings to you and your family.

  6. So sorry about your sweetie. But you were brave and loving bringing peace to her. She'll be there in bright light.

    Kisses from us.


You are always welcome to comment on my thoughts and I love them all......
