My baby girl

My beautiful baby girl has gone today. It was so sudden. She was fine yesterday morning, then in the afternoon she was listless and her breathing was laboured. The vet thought she had had a seizure and would improve but she got worse as the night wore on. This morning we went to the vet again. She had fluid around her heart. When they drained it they found a tumour on her heart. There was nothing they could do, so we took that awful decision to have her put to sleep. It was very quick and very peaceful. I miss her so much. She slept on our bed (I know!), she liked to be with her pack. She was funny, quirky, stubborn. I loved her so much. My heart is breaking. My children are grown up and not at home, but they are devastated. I want to be with them. I know it will get better, but I can't see how it will. I know it was the right thing to do, but it hurts so much, I want to see her again.

I'm so sorry for your loss, what a shock for you. It sounds a good way for her to have gone (quickly without suffering) but horrendous for you when you had to make that choice sad

I cried for days when we had to have our elderly lab PTS a few years ago. Her ashes are in our house as I can't bear to bury them and say that final goodbye. It's the very worst part of being a dog owner. Be kind to yourself and let it out..... she's part of your family that's now gone flowers

It's so sad, whether a quick or a prolonged ending, when they are family ours a painful loss. We also sleep as a pack here, no apologies. When one goes it's so hard. Sending you big hugs op.

You must be devastated and in shock.

She will know how much you loved her.

I hope you have many happy memories of her. flowers
