Panda

Panda is gone. It was the right time. I had so many doubts but when I went to put her leash on yesterday she tried to bite me and flipped all over as if she didn't know who I was and had never been on a leash. Her mind really failed over the weekend. She became so confused and scared of everything. She's not scared anymore.

My eyes are puffy and I look a mess. But there is a sense of relief that I did the right thing.

So sad indeed, but you did do the right thing for her and she is in doggie heaven romping around like her old self.

Big hugs for you is all I can do.

I'm so sorry. I know its hard but you have to think of them and ifs its a quality life for them. We want them to live on so much but we need to think of them. You did the right thing and it will hurt because you loved panda so much but think of all the joy you've had too. I have lost several cats thru the years by having to make that decision. My heart goes out to you.

I am so sorry. Thank you for sharing with us. There was a comment left on FB this morning by Jennifer Shaw regarding the passing of her brother-in-law, but it applies to you too. "When someone you love becomes a memory, the memory becomes a treasure. ~Author Unknown" I am glad that you have lots of treasures of Panda.

Always remember the good times! We keep our passed away dogs (ashes) on our dresser with their collars and pictures. We see them every day and I bet we talk about them every day. It will get easier. You did the right thing.

Such sad news. I share your pain. Animals suffer and we suffer along with them.Panda is happy now running through green pastures with other dogs. She is free healthy and happy.
You did the right thing because the end was coming anyway. You just shortened the pain and suffering for her.
She looks wonderful in the picture and you can take comfort from knowing she had a great life with you.

:( :( :( Oh Patty,I'm so sorry.

I'm never ready to let any of my 'kids' go, but I think it's such a blessing that we have the choice of kindness to end their suffering. It's the last thing we can do for them.

What a sweetheart she was.

My ♥ goes out to your and your family as well as the other dogs left behind.

I'm so sorry I'm just hearing about Panda. I've been in a little funk since Max went to doggie heaven and just saw the post that you left on my blog.

My prayers and hugs are certainly with you and I know that this is a very sad time for you and your family. Although we trust in the Lord, it hurts.

Love you
