I helped my sweet little girl across the bridge today. She had breathing problems for months, to the point of having gasping attacks. My vet and I tried everything to no avail. Antibiotics stopped working, and last night she had the longest, most severe breathing attack yet.
She was perfectly fine at the vet, which killed me and made me question my decision, but now I know she will never have to suffer through another panic breathing attack again.

I will love you forever and miss you more than words could ever say.

thank you, it's never an easy decision and it's hard to feel at peace with either choice.

It's always awful when they have 'good moments' that make you doubt your decision, but you made the right one for her, she would undoubtedly have had further fits, and you prevented her ever having to go through that again. She was very beautiful, I'm sorry for your loss. :(

Thank you everyone. I had to put one of my babies to sleep in July, but I am taking Rizzo extra hard. I think it's because we had so many nurturing bonding moments when she wasn't feeling well...I was supposed to take care of her and make everything better. And also her ending happened so quickly. With Blanch, she had a tumor growing for months so I knew it was coming. With Rizzo, we were playing the night before like everything was fine.

Tori, I'm so sorry to hear about your very sad loss:( . It's never an easy decision to make and we always question ourselves afterwards about whether or not it was the right thing or whether it was the right time, should I have waited.. These are very normal responses, but you did the responsible thing, the loving thing, and least selfish thing. Remember that when those questions play around your mind. Feeling for your loss :(
