    Default Today we say goodbye :(

    In a few hours we say goodbye to my sweet Babie. I know I'm doing the right thing, but it doesn't make my heart ache any less. I took everyone's advice and took pictures and videos this last week. We went to the lake on Saturday and then to the Saguaro National Park on Monday. Two places she has always gone from the day we brought her home until a few years ago when I moved back to my home in Cincinnati. On one hand I wish I was still in Ohio, so I could take comfort in being with my family. On the other hand, I'm happy that B got to come back to her home in Arizona. We had one more summer of chasing lizards and lounging in the bright desert sun. She was able to see my ex a few times and get some love.This is the saddest day I have ever experienced, saying goodbye is never easy. I'm at peace with my decision, I can't stand to watch her suffer. I see the pain she is in and she's lost so much weight. I'm happy that I got Guinevere when I did, she will help me through this hard time. How can you not smile and laugh when there is a silly puppy to watch!

    @Tkelley...I'm very sorry to hear this news even as I've known it was coming
    from reading your previous posts.

    Loss is painful, so painful...no wonder we dread it so. Take some comfort in
    knowing Babie had a wonderful life in your care and that, even now...you've
    never failed her.

    My cat, CoCo...who came to me as a dying little kitten and at 4 months at a new
    Vet's office was told, she wouldn't have a long life...is 13 y/o and going strong.

    No one believes she's that age and other than getting all her shots & spayed,
    she's never been back to the Vet's...too healthy! Anyways, I'm knowing her days
    are shorter rather than longer and trying to prepare myself...but really...I don't
    think we can.

    Keeping you & yours & Babie in my thoughts & prayers.


    My 1st bully, Brutus
    RIP beloved boy.

    I’m so so sorry. The most unselfish decision we can make is the right decision when it comes time to let them go to Rainbow Bridge. My heart aches for you but I know at the same time he will be in really good company, my Ace & Orion are there too. to you!!!!

    So sorry for the loss of your Babie, but like you said, it is for the best and she will not suffer any longer, even though this does not make it any easier. Our heart goes out to you, and bless you for making the right decision for Babie. I know you and Guinevere will miss her dearly, so snuggle with Guinevere and you two can help each other get over the loos of your beautiful Babie. Just remember she will always be a part of you and forever in your memory. Sending hugs your way.
    Have a Great Bully Day.
