AS some of you may know I lost my girl on Monday due to glaucoma and being 15 they didn t want to put her through the pain of yet another surgery..She was the true meaning of unconditional love to the very last minute ..she wanted to get better and have the pain go away mom always managed that before only six months ago she had a mass removed from behind her ear and it took two months to recover ..it took a lot oout of her she couldn t jump up on the couch any more..
Her poor eye developed this glaucoma at with all the drops and pills it was still up so vet said it was more than likely a mass behind of eye keeping the pressure in the 90 range which was all to much for mee..
to llook at that face every time I put those drops in she cried ..so it was time which still and always will stick in my throat.. its been only 48 hrs without her but feels like months maybe she had left in pieces ..I know I am in pieces..missing her so much..i need to get another pet maybe that would help with the grief but it will take awhile for the emptiness to leave first..I love you patches ...........keep the bridge warm for moma..

And you gave her the ultimate gift in return, by putting her needs first :hp

I know she is smiling down upon you from the bridge. Peace, Patches

It always amazes me that a pup of about 20 or so pounds can leave such a large, gaping, painful hole. You did all you could until the very end. Your decision was kind and unselfish and she left your arms knowing she was loved. I am sorry for your loss.

Mary,
It is hard to watch our little solemates hurt and go through these issues. We deal with each issue one at a time, but it seems that when they get older, those health issues spill over into the next.
You were blessed to have each other and she certain knew how much you loved her.
[Hugs]

I know what you mean. I can remember leaving a square of muddy paw prints in the corner of the kitchen because I couldn't get rid of them all. I would be sleeping and swear the dog jumped onto the bed. Personally I believe they are still with us. Get yourself a copy of Dog Heaven. It's a child's book but it will touch your heart. Then....when you feel ready, get two "adult" books; A Dog's Purpose and A Dog's Journey - if you haven't read them yet. I think you'll enjoy them too.
