Special thoughts of you as you spend your last hours with Molly Dog, I have been through the same over the years with my dog and cats and it is always such a wrench, but it's the price we pay for having the pleasure and company of our pets and is the last caring thing we can do for them.

Remember the good times and smile

Brave decision Carol.

Best wishes x

Not an easy decision but she has obviously had a good life with you. Thinking of you as you part with her.

it's just gut wrenching isn't it - and for weeks after too - been there and done it many times - so hard to deal with - in some respects more treasured than some members of one's family - only have cats now, my present one is absolutely adorable, he's ten, a rescue cat, but the thought of being without him is unimagineable

Am so sorry, Carol, I know just how you feel <3

Ah how sad. When we can see they have no quality of life any more its a sad decision to give them some help to pass peacefully. Much better though for them than lingering and maybe having pain .

I remember only too well .as I sure others will too the pain of knowing that's what needs to be done but dreading the time for the vet to help them.

I am sure you will always remember her with love and be grateful she was part of the family.

Bless you Molly Dog . <3

Molly will always be at your side now and forever X

Seems to me that you have successfully filled Molly Dog's life as full of love as is possible. She only needs that final act of love now.

I am very sorry to hear that.
Some do not realise the pain involved in losing a loved pet, especially a dog.

Never easy Carol, but remembering the good times is healing and Molly has had a good life and well loved by those around her.

For us to say farewell to Molly Dog, she was 14 last November , has had many age related health problems, sleeping most of the time but perked up for a few hours each day, even chased cats out of HER garden.

For the last couple of days she has hardly moved off of her cushion on the sofa, lost her appetite & her zest for life. We had hoped that she would just go naturally in her sleep, but as she has not done so will leave us to cross Rainbow Bridge with a little help tomorrow morning & join other dearly loved pets in our wood.

So today I will be spending some time just watching her sleep, remembering her in her younger days, her funny ways & the pleasure & love she has given us.
