At this time, I can truly say I feel your pain. And I do, you see I just put my beloved french bulldog Buster Brown down last week.For him it was he
went off his food,something he's never done in his 19 years on this planet.I fixed him food from my pantry,got him canned ID from the vet,got all the
meds and gave them to him.He would eat for one day,then not the next.Finally after two days of not eating he got up and sat in the floor,he was
shaking and rocking back on his haunches in pain.His eyes were squinting as the pain came and went,and then I knew. I could not let him suffer,he
didn't deserve that after all those years of being such a kind gentle sweet natured dog.Always said he would have been the perfect little girls
dog.You could put clothes, glasses, hats, etc on him and he would just sit there and wait to see what you wanted next. I'd wrap him in a blanket and
carry him around like a baby playing and he would just lay in my arms.If I rocked him in a chair with him on his back he would fall to sleep.
And now he's gone.The house feels so empty,even the dog and cat feel it and are sad.I stare at the ortho bed in front of my fireplace where he layed
before he went and cry.But I regret nothing.I gave him the supportive care he needed to see if he would recuperate and get back to eating.I gave him
the time he needed but it was for nothing.It was his time,I saw the pain and it had to end.It is my place to suffer now and deal with it.As his mommy
I knew when I took him that this day would come.And it would be the last loving act I could do for him.
The price for love is loss.We have to live with it.I know that one day when I go I'll get to see him again.He will be healthy and happy and his old
self.If heaven is where you have the things and people you love then all my companions will be there for me.Bless you Buster Brown, and thank you for
sharing your life with me.when the pain has gone down a bit I will honor your kindness with saving anothers life like I did yours.You came off the
streets running for your life,then shared it with me.You made me a better person for it.I can do no less than to give another kind soul a chance at
life when I can deal with the grief of losing you.
"Hugs" to you my friend,your pain is from doing the right thing.Remember the joy your baby brought to you.In time give that joy to another.There are
so many animals out there waiting for someone to love them and care for them like you did to your baby.Feel the pain but don't let it consume
you.Animals forgive,they let go of past hurts.We have to do the same.Bless you,may you find peace during this time of grief.
