Oh Jen ifer, I am a blubbering mess right now. That was so kind of you to dhare thst. And to jnow the Vet gave you a copy when it was time for Milos's transition...lovely. This is the same boy Milo accompanied on his trip to college, right? Milo and "his boy"?? Your son is a very special Soul...just like his Mom.

I know Kellye will find that helpful.

Kellye, we are all holding you tightly with our collective cyber hugs.. We are with you. We are surrounding you with our strength and our love.

Peace to you

Thank you everyone for your support and sharing. Jenifer thanks for sharing your story and especially how you explained it to your son. 

Rosie started on steroids last week and she feels better the next day.  She can get up on her own and go outside if she needs to.  I've been second guessing tomorrow's appointment all week.  Tonight on my way home I thought about postponing for a few weeks.  Then I had a vivid daydream of her dying at home alone and scared while I am working.  Despite not being ready I am going to go through with it tomorrow.  She won't get better and she's suffering.  

So tonight I lay in bed with her head on my shoulder for our last night together.  She's licking my tears.  I've tried to be so strong and not let her see my sadness.  I just can't tonight.  God I love this dog.  

Mom Kellye and Rosie the Wonder Tripawd. ❤

I'll be thinking of you and Rosie tonight and tomorrow.

When I made the appointment for Maggie I knew it was right.  My mom and dad came over for a visit and Mag perked up and even played with my dad a little.  I thought about calling the vet to cancel.  But we had had two terrible nights in a row, her tumor was growing, and no matter what we did she wasn't going to get better.  My vet and I discussed trying some meds, experimenting to see if we could make her comfortable for some more time.  But I knew in my heart that trying to extend her time wasn't right. 

Just as you know in your heart.  Treasure each and every second and know that tomorrow you will be giving Rosie an unselfish gift.  Too many of us have walked this part of the journey and we are here to help carry your burden.

I am thinking of you today. I wish that I could say something that would give you any kind of solace.

I understand your tears so well and Rosie doesn't mind, trust me, she loves you unconditionally and will only try to be there for you, not judge you on this. -and this goes for today as well as tomorrow, in the here and in the beyond.

The greatest gift of all: your love and compassion.

Sally said it so well: We are with you. We are surrounding you with our strength and our love.

Hugs

We cry with you today. As hard as it is though, you are doing the right thing for Rosie. It will not get any better! And I know Rosie is so grateful that you are releasing her before it does get any worse. Like Karen, I had to remind myself that it would only get worse for my Happy Hannah. I just could not take the risk of an extra few days or even a week or two knowing that it would only get worse. Oftentimes dogs do seem to have a better day or two before they are transition. I think it's because their soul knows they are about to be free from pain and will experience joy and happiness as they return back home to their Spirit energy. Rosie is giving you the memory of her feeling better. that is a far better memory then watching them struggle in pain and suffering. you are definitely doing the right thing at the right time. there is nothing else to be done.

Come back to us when you can and as soon as you can. It's going to be unbreakable and devastatingly sad for you for a while and we want to be here to support you as best we can. We understand.

When Rosie gets to the bridge she will be greeted with wheel barrels full of steak and ice cream and chocolate and treats and pizza and cupcakes and she won't even get sick when she eats all of them in one sitting! All the bridge occupants will show her around and take her out into the field so she can run and take her to the pristine clear lake so she can drink some cool water. then she will sit under a Shady Tree and brag to them about the best time she had with you. She will tell them that she would not have traded one thing, not one thing, because she got to be with you. And then when she settles down some, she will make her presence known to you. You will know that she is always with you. Rosie knows that and that's why she was ready to go to the bridge. She knows her connection with you can never be broken.

We are with you. Feel our strength and our love. It is there.

Surrounding you with Rosie's eternal grace

You and Rosie are in our thoughts.   I am heartbroken for you.   Just remind yourself that this is for Rosie- and that you are assisting her into pain free, fun days ahead.

Thursday was the day Miss Rosie crossed the bridge.  It was so hard beforehand. Knowing that I wouldn't see her smiling face any longer.  I am still too raw to write much, but I wanted to share a bit and say thank you for your love and support.  This community means the world and I am so grateful to have family such as Tripawds.  

Her transition was at home and very peaceful.  

Yeaterday I decided to take Braden to their favorite park. It's several acres and trails in old growth forests.  They loved running like the wind through the woods.  We haven't been in almost a year.  As we pulled up yesterday there was a big rainbow 🌈 and I knew that Rosie was there waiting for us.  

Thanks again. Kellye and Braden and angel Rosie.

Wow! That's incredible, Kellye. Beautiful, poignant and profoundly moving. It was brave of you to go to the park. I know how hard, how bittersweet, it can be to return to those favourite places. That rainbow was definitely a sign, a tail-wag from your beautiful Rosie.

I'm so pleased that the transition was peaceful. 

Sending love and a massive hug,

{{{{hugs}}}}}

We stand with you and share your heartache Kellye. Our deepest condolences go out to your pack.

That last day is very hard, no doubt. As you try to get your head around it, remember that you gave her a peaceful farewell that any dog could hope for...and even us humans as well. The rainbow was definitely a sign that her spirit was soaring high and free, spreading her beautiful love all over the universe. Some day, you will meet again at that rainbow.

Write when you feel strong enough, we're always here for you.

It's better to hop on three legs than to limp on four.™

I am so very sorry that Rosie's time here with you and Braden was at an end, Kellye, but glad for you all that her transition was gentle and peaceful and that you and Braden had a sign that all was well with her with a rainbow at the park.  Wishing her peace and gentle, restful ease.

On October 27, 2016, nearly 6 months after amputation, and 18 months since his cancer likely started, we lost Pofi to a recurrence of Soft Tissue Sarcoma in his spine quite suddenly.  His Daddy and I miss him terribly along with his canine sister, Mia, and two feline siblings, Lucia and Cliff.

I'm so glad her transition was peaceful Kellye. That's the best we can hope for our furbabies at the end.

That park sounds gorgeous - it's wonderful that Rosie chose it to send you & Braden a sign.

Thinking of you allheart
