Thanks everyone, all your suggestions and stories and support are so helpful at this time. Im soaking it all in!  We will certainly keep on loving on her today and I like the idea of going into another room when we really need to cry. 

As for her house full of stuff, we will deal with that when the time feels right. 

I think I need to go stock up on Kleenex

Kleenex won't do at a time like this....just grab and old sweatshirt and a few vlankets....And that still may not be enough.

We love you dearlyheartheartheart

I am so sorry to hear this.   We all celebrate Kylie's life.  She is a true warrior and friend!  We'll be thinking about you today.  It's great to be able to let her go at home where she is the most comfortable.  You have done everything humanly possible and she knows that. As hard as it will be,  when she lets you know at some point in the next few days she is ok, that will lighten your heart a teeny bit.

Those are beautiful pictures that you can cherish forever.

My heart hurts for you, Kevin and Kylie knowing that the decision is here. I'm SO sorry! This is such a hard day on a pet parent, it's the worst thing to give the best gift we can isn't it? My heart goes out to you both. Never forget that you are helping Kylie transition out of pain and into an eternal spirit that will never get sick or ache, will never fade and will always guide you in your own life journey. She gave so much to you as an earth-bound dog and now she will be with you forever.

The pictures are so beautiful, it's obvious how much you love sweet Kylie. What treasured keepsakes.

Grieving is individual yet I can tell you what worked for us. We called it the "remember when?" game. After Jerry left, each time we felt like falling apart, we prompted one another to think of a better time. Like, the times we hiked together, or when he swam and chased sticks, anything to replace the painful memories of saying goodbye. And we would say "Remember when Jerry did (name your memory!)". It helped after a while. Because in time you learn that the last few painful weeks you had together are a smidgen in time of the big beautiful lifetime you had with your beloved hero. You will get there, but don't feel you need to rush or get rid of her things right away. Do what feels right but allow yourself to feel it. You can't avoid the hurt but once you get through it there is light at the other side.

I'm so sorry. You are both in our hearts today and always.

Those photos are beautiful.  You can tell how much the three of you love each other.

Thinking about you on this, the most difficult of difficult days.  You know you are doing this for Kylie, because you love her.

Thank u everyone. Our sweet Kylie girl is gone. It was about 4:07pm.  We are absolutely devastated. She had a nice passing though. Our Vet came to the house with a tech and they were wonderful. There were tons of tears but we were OK to let her go. She had gotten even worse since Sat. So although we never want to lose her, the Vet appt couldn't come soon enough. She could barely walk. Vet said she could feel the tumour had grown even bigger since last week. 😥

We got our share of cuddles and kisses galore from her. We told her how much we loved her and she was a good girl for being so brave but it was OK for her to sleep now. She won't hurt anymore. I held her head in my hands while Kevin held her paw (this was always their thing!) 

So get this....... of course after talking to u guys, we encouraged Kylie in the last few hours to PLEASE give signs when she's gone so we know she's still around. We hear of this once they pass over to rainbow bridge & are hopeful to hear from her & know she's OK 

well after  some grieving at home we decided we needed to get out of this empty quiet house so we decided to go for a long drive.  We found ourselves at Kylie's cottage where she used to swim in the lake and on the way back I was crying and talking about her and the memories then all of a sudden BAM we saw the most beautiful brightest biggest rainbow right in front of us that came out of nowhere. 😲 I kid you not!! 

It down poured rain like a wall right in front of us yet It was sunny all around us in every other direction so the rain and rainbow did not make sense unless it was from Kylie.  I immediately snapped a photo and started bawling.  We pulled  The car over and had a good cry and said thank you to Kylie for saying hello from rainbow bridge.  It was only about four hours since she passed at that point so she did not waste anytime 😉

 Even from the other side Kylie continues to fill our hearts with love. ❤️ Even though our hearts are broken tonight they're a little less broken after getting that sign from her.  I am greedy and I really hope there's more to come

 We are exhausted and after two glasses of wine I'm hoping I sleep tonight thank you all again for everything xo

So glad you're here with us tonight....here with your family and with Kykie's Fan Club. And boy oh boy, we were all members of SUPERKYLIE'S FAN CLUB! We adored that sweet girl and her gentle Spirit.

And yes, she got to the Bridge swiftly and without hesitation because she was sooooo ready!!! She could leave knowing you woukd be okay (eventually) and knowing she had your permission to go.

Crying through every word you wrote....until I got to the part about the Rinbow..KYLIE'S RAINBOW!!! 🙂 🙂 And make nooooo mistake about it...that was ABSOLUTELY a sign....a HUGE MAGNIFICENT SPECIFIC SIGN sent to you directly from Kylie!! 🙂 KYLIE'S RAINBOW was right in front of you. And it was surrounded by so much LIGHT!!! Did you see all that LIGHT? You were surrounded by Kulie's etrrnal light!!

That was just one more way Kylie reminded yi4u that her bright light can NEVER be dimmed!

Too many of us know how hard the upcoming days and weeks will be. This void will be unbearable for awhile. The break in routine will leave you walking around aimlessly. You'll feel somlost. Yiur world has stiprped. And we all understand.

We also know that, as Jerry said, you can help push the sadnes further in the background by bringing the happy memories to the forefront...and there are thousands and thousands of happy days with wonderful memories!

Can you imagine the pawty at the Bridge with all the newcomers recently?? Nothing but joy and wagging tails as Kylie was greeted with her own special "welcome wagon" full of peanut Butter Reese Cups, Milk Bones wrapped in liver, and lots and lots of ice cream!

Kylie probably spent the first hour swimming in pristine clear lakes the next hour eating all her wonderful junk food, then took a little bit of a nap in the most lush cool grasses you could ever imagine. After that she conjured up THE MOST BEAUTIFUL RAINBOW EVER CREATED made with her Spirit Energy and zapped it down right in front of you so you woukd know she was okay!! 🙂

Surrounding you with our love

That rainbow is extraordinary. So, so bright and brilliant and beautiful, and right there in front of you! Wow. It's like Kylie simply couldn't wait to send you a sign that she was okay, that she loves you and she will always be with you. Okay, so she had a little snack first (you'd expect nothing less of her, I'm sure), and as Sally says, maybe a little nap, but then she was like, 'Just hold on guys. I'll be ready to party in a moment, but there's something really, really important, I just need to go and do first...'

She will be with you always. Through many tomorrows. Love such as you shared cannot just disappear. Kylie will always be there in your heart, but the loss of her physical presence is just so unbearably hard. I am sorry and am sending you love and strength. I agree very much with what Jerry said. The pain of the loss never leaves you entirely, but in time there is a sort of rebalancing, and the many joyful times you shared start to come back to the surface. This, at least, has been my experience.

You are very much in my thoughts today and in the days ahead.

With love,

Meg, Clare and Elsie Pie (and Angel Billie, who went to the Bridge ten years ago today. She will, I am certain, have been a member of Kylie's welcoming committee) heartheartheartheart

What a fitting sign!  And so soon!  You will get more signs - you will :).  What a lucky pup, your Kylie.  As she was leaving, she was only thinking, "I love you so much! Thank you!  Thank you!  Thank you for loving me!  Thank you for doing everything you could for me. For giving me extra time.  And then, for freeing me from this earthly body that was causing me pain."

Kylie was a super special girl and you guys are super special, too.  We are so sorry for the pain you're in right now.

Thank you for sharing her with all of us.

Wishing you peace,

Tracy & Zatoichiheart

Bravo Kylie, the rainbow was really a very nice touch and your Mom and Dad definitely understood. What a wonderful way to know that your girl was ok. I'm so sorry that your hearts are hurting. You loved Kylie so much and she loved you right back. You were there for her when she needed you most and that is the greatest gift you can give. 

Take care of yourselves and allow yourself time to grieve and remember. Please continue to share all those fun and happy memories as they pop into your mind in the days to come - because they will come back and overshadow this hurt.

Please know that we are all here for you and are thinking of you and Kylie.

I'm sad to hear about Kylie, but the rainbow story is all sorts of awesome.

WOW. How beautiful! That was totally her letting you know that she's doing well at the bridge with her new friends. What a real and true sign from your forever angel.

Saying goodbye is the hardest part of being a pet parent. We're never ready for it and their lives are never long enough. But once you look back it's clear that the lessons they teach us last a lifetime, if we are open to them. Clearly, you and your hubby were Kylie's #s students and you graduated with flying colors. May your girl's spirit stay strong in your heart and light up your world forever.

With many, many condolences coming your way....xoxoxo

Enlarged spleen in September 2013 and had it removed and was diagnosed with Hemangiosarcoma and started chemotherapy. Became a Tripawd January 8th, 2014 and definitive Hemangiosarcoma diagnosis. Three major surgeries in 7 months and Shelby took them all like a champ only to lose her battle to cancer in her brain. We had 8 amazing extra months together and no regrets. #shelbystrong #loveofmylife
