We had to put Sandy to sleep today. It is one of the hardest things I've ever done. We all agreed it was time, though. Daily activities were just getting impossible for her, and we didn't want to see her suffer. She was a trooper right until the end. She never failed to greet me and try to follow me around the house, even when it was so difficult for her. She has been my constant companion through good and bad for 14 years, and always offered unconditional love. I miss her terribly. Gus misses her, too. He is moping around-he's never been an only dog. I know we did the right thing at the right time, but it hurts. I am thankful I got to be with her at the very end and speak words of love to her-I hope that's the last thing she remembers.

I am very sorry. She is watching over you, still being your great companion, not that far away. She is running freely with no aches or pains, and met some new friends, I bet. I got teary eyed when I read your blog, but I'm so glad she is in no pain. She will be waiting for you when that time comes.

I, too, am so sorry for your loss. I just found out about Sandy through reading a discussion and I started crying. I came to your page to find out what you decided to do. It must have been very hard. Blessings on you for doing the courageous act of setting your dog free of suffering. Take care, Joy

I'm so sorry for your loss. There is a special bond between humans and dogs. Who really knows why. But it is there, nonetheless. And we are better for it. The unconditional love and acceptance that greets us at the door makes each day worth living. Patti and I offer our prayers and healing, comforting energy to you all, with a special pat on the head for Gus. May you find peace for your soul in this difficult time.

Very sorry for your loss. I'm sure Sandy felt your love every day of her life and especially when you were there with her till the end.

Wynne, we're so sad for you and share your grief ~ it is so painful to lose such a faithful companion. I hope your memories of Sandy will bring you lots of comfort in the coming days, how wonderful it was to share life with her for the time she was given. I'm sure the decision was so hard to make, but you had her best interests at heart, and that is a mark of true love!

She will be waiting for you over the bridge.
