I am so sorry for the pain your family is going through tonight. Take care of yourself as you move through this difficult time.

I'm so sorry for your family. This has been such an ordeal for all of you, I just want to send some prayers and hugs your way.

At least this x-ray made the decision clear so that he wouldn't have to go on for weeks like this with ultimately the same outcome.

Every time I think of tomorrow morning I cry. Is it horrible of me to think of not going to see him? I hate to think that the last time he saw us was 10 days ago, but I'm a mess and I won't be able to not cry. Will he pick up on that? Would it be easier on him if I didn't see him?

I have no idea. This is the first time I've had to do this. I don't like it at all.

I hope you went. I just saw this now or I would have said that last night. When I was in this situation, I went, and I hated it at the time, but after Chance was gone, I was really glad I went.

It's done. No, I did not go to the vet. I might regret that later, but I couldn't get myself to go. The boys went with DH. They brought him home and are now done burying him in the back yard.

It finally hit the boys while they were digging the hole. They both cried. We buried him with his favorite toy.

So sorry for your loss

If you were going to be very upset (which I don't know how you couldn't have been) when it was going to be done, I can completely understand not going, especially when others in your family went so he wasn't alone. Clive could have picked up on that energy and been upset.

I'm so sorry. Thankful though that he had such a great family to take care of him the best they could. Thankful also that your dh and boys were able to be there. I don't blame you at all for not going. You have so much on your plate as it is. Clive knew he was loved and in the end....that's what matters!

Oh Kleine, I'm so sorry. I know how much you loved Clive, and Clive knew how much you and your family loved him. You gave him a great life and you did what you could. Much love and peace.
