We had to say good bye to my 16 year old border collie mix this morning.  He had a rough night of coughing and panting.  We went to take him to the vet this morning and he apparently had a heart attack and starting coughing up blood.  I couldn't even express our wishes verbally.  The doctor had to ask us yes or no questions.  He offered aggressive therapy, but did not recommend it.  It was unbelievably hard to let him go.  I wanted them to fight for him, but that would have been selfish.  I only wish we could have gotten him there sooner this morning and saved him that last bit of suffering.  It was so difficult to go home this morning with out him.  I miss him terribly.

I am so sorry for your loss.

I am so incredibly sorry.  Words cannot express...it is so hard when it is so sudden.  *hug*

Just know you did the right thing...the ultimate act of love is to let them go when we are hurting so much inside.

I am sorry to hear of your loss. We lost our Hoover in a similar matter.  I hope you can remember all of the good times your had together.  You were, undoubtedly, his whole, wonderful world.

I'm so sorry to hear about your loss. Its never easy losing a pup and even harder when it is so unexpected. You are in my thoughts. Corgi  hugs to you.

Oh Sandy, I'm so very sorry....what a horrible experience but sometimes there are only so many things you can do and letting go is the hardest.

That is very unfortunate. I hope you have found solace in knowing that you extinguished his suffering, at least.

I am so sorry.  It is so very difficult to loose our furry loved ones!  Sending out corgi hugs and kisses.  ^,,^
