    Thank you

    As I said before, she wouldn't eat. No matter what I put in front of her she turned her head. I even ran out yesterday in the middle of dinner to buy her some meclizine (dramamine) hoping that it would stimulate her appetite (that's one of the side effects) but it didn't. I syringed some pureed turkey and sweet potato into her mouth but she threw it back up. Last night she was laying on the couch and she would groan when I touched her. That's when we knew for sure that it was time.

    She had never seen a Christmas tree before so I put ours up for her. She barked and growled at it for a little while then fell asleep. Her breathing had changed too, over the course of the night it got more and more labored. She was suffocating.

    Making the decision was the easy part. Following through with it was not.

    Abby left us surrounded by the staff and doctors at Rutherford Animal Hospital. Everyone there came in to say goodbye, all of us were crying.

    I still haven't been able to breath. It feels like there is a hole in my heart and all the air is getting sucked out of it. I know that I did the right thing for her. I find myself wondering if she still had one miracle left in her. But she looked so old and tired.

    I loved that little girl with everything that I had. My life will never be the same.

    For me, her name was Abby

    Oh man there you go making me cry again. She's In a better place now, and not suffering. You made the right decision and what was bet for her, even if it was hard. You made the right decision because you loved her, and I'm sure she felt that. So sorry you're going through this.

    Oh, Twice, I'm am so, so sorry for the loss of your little sweet Abby. I haven't been here long enough to follow your entire journey with her, but I have followed the most recent portion and have been praying for you and her. You will miss her so much, I'm sure. She is pain free now and without restrictions. I now will pray for you, that you will soon have peace in the memories of the time you shared with your beloved girl.

    You did the right thing. Letting go is never easy, but you did what was right for Abby. You looked after her even to the very end.

    Bev you did what was best for Abby, as you have always done, you are an inspiration to us all, and may be all be strong enough when we come to that same decision.

    I don't know if you are on facebook or not but Abby was also loved there too, here is the post we put up earlier when we found out. Abby was loved by so many!

    A 'SPECIAL PLACE'

    You have a special place Dear Lord that I know you'll always keep A special place reserved for dogs when they quietly fall asleep With large and airy kennels and a yard for hiding bones With maybe a little babbling creek that chatters over stones. With wide green fields and flowers for those who never knew about running freely under Your sky of perfect blue. Lord,I know You keep this Special Place And so to you I Pray, For one Special Bulldog Who quietly died today She was full of strength & love and so very, very wise. The puppy look she once had Had long since left her eyes. She is dearly missed my Lord By a very good friend of mine. She went to join her ancestors To Your land that is Devine So, speak to Abby softly please And give her a warm hello. She's a Special gift to you Dear Lord From Bev, who loved her so. R.I.P Sweet Angel I am so so sorry Bev,. She had the best life because of YOU.

    No..your life will never be the same. It will be better because you had Abby to love. Not today..or tomorrow or next month...but you will feel it. This I know from experience. Breathe Bev...breathe.
