Sophie Update

My precious little Sophie girl is in the final stages of kidney failure.
The vet wanted to let her go today...! I was in shock...figured they'd just fix her again, like they did the last time, but they said her little body just isn't working.
I'm just heartbroken beyond belief...
They're giving her fluids and then she's going to come home, so we can love on her for a few more days, then it will be time...
I'm just sick...like someone is ripping my heart out.
She's been the best girl...ever! ...and I love her so....

Sweetie, my heart is breaking for you. :( This must be unimaginably painful. Please know my best thoughts are with you, and with your dear Sophie as she passes on from this life. My son believes that all of our pets are an amalgamation of those that came before. I don't know if this is true, but perhaps your dear Sophie will find her way to you again...

We had the same thing happen with our 16-year-old cat, Chico (short for Chicago White Sox), who we had since he was a kitten. He had a urinary tract problem for many years and we faithfully gave him pills ground up in his food twice a day.

Plus he had a pinched nerve in his back that got worse and worse so he could no longer squat to pee.

When we finally took him to the vet to be put to sleep, we cried and cried and sobbed and cried some more.

It is very hard to make that kind of decision for fur-kids, but at the end of the day, it is more humane for them.

I'm sorry you're having to make that decision. It's very hard.

Oh, I'm so sorry to hear this news. But I'm glad you will have some final good-bye time with Sophie. Her little body has worn out, but her spirit and love for you will always go on. Hugs to all at this difficult time.

One of the hardest things I have had to do is put a pet down.Hope you and Sophie can part in a more comforting way.

Oh no, I am so very sorry to hear this. Nature only made one mistake and that was giving dogs short lifespans. This has to be an awful time for you but like Debra said, at least you will get some time to love on her and say good bye.
My heart goes out to you.

Thank you all, so very much, for your kind words.

Ashling said...

Oh no...I'm so sorry. They wiggle and love their way into our hearts for so very short a time. Know that she loves you as much as you do her, and you've given her a wonderful life.
