  1. My Polly She is my heart but it beats without her She is my constant though is never there She is my memories as they lessen and fade She is my shadow when only daylight appears She is my reason through confusion and pain She is my gone girl until we meet again!
  2. I too am sorry for your loss and understand the pain their departure leaves behind - so many little mementos...but from what you write she had a brilliant, full life so you couldn't have done any better Sheena...
  3. thanks Kazm and Tikira for showing me that what I'm feeling is 'normal'. I don't want to forget her - she was too important to me..I guess i'll be like you both...in years to come still with my Polly in my thoughts...won't stop me from loving other dogs..but she was/is special. R
  4. I just wanted to do a follow-up. My darling Polly has been gone several weeks now and in the eyes of the world, my 'grieving' should be about finished. And yes, on some outer level I am back to being business as usual. In day to day activities I am as light and fluffy as a middle-aged woman can be! But when no one's around - when I get home at night and my husband is at work..well, I see the urns on the table..one for Pol and one for her dear brother, Bazil...and my heart breaks as much as it did on the first day. It's almost like I'm enjoying this private moment of grief - for my daughte
  5. what A lovely little dog Jasper was - I am so very sorry...
  6. I know you all understand- that is so special to me - Rebecca
  7. It’s been two days since Polly went - euthanised and the pain is exquisite. We were a family of four - our boy let us last year and Thursday morning Polly went. The house feels like an empty place - I keep expecting to see her - no barks when other dogs pass the gate - no cutesy face when I’m near the treat cupboard - no derrière in my sight for a quick scratch. I miss her so incredibly- they say that dogs aren’t your children - but she was and always will be my beautiful girl - mummy’s girl. sorry for this intrusion I just had to write my feelings somewhere where people will understand..
  8. Thanks Barb/Tassie Old age certainly does hit us all! But at least Polly has kept her looks and delightful mane....more than can be said for me I take on board what you've said..we are due to go back to vets in two weeks' time so will do as you suggest ref blood... but it's the balance between subjecting them to things that don't achieve anything versus the desire to leave her in peace...soooo tricky! PW
  9. Thanks Persephone...when I first came on this site years ago..I had two healthy young delights...our boy went last year and now Polly...never having kids and still having parents, I've never experienced grief like it and now...I feel that I am looking at a little dog who doesn't know what is about to befall her..I guess that's a good thing..but I KNOW!! and that makes it so hard... a world without both of them is going to be very empty.... Sorry..getting maudlin Thanks again PW
  10. Thanks everso Mackiemad...you're right we don't know for sure it's diabetes. Also, the vet didn't elaborate on the impact on Polly's health with the diabetes..but now you've detailed it, I can see what we're dealing with... Appreciate this..of course, if I had my way, she wouldn' t have anything wrong with her..vet said I might be in denial!!! Appreciate your words P
  11. I knew this would be the one site where I would get a clean, sensible response..so here goes... Polly, my pomeranian, is 12 1/2. Recently she was rushed to an emergency vets (weekend) and diagnosed with HGE. During her ultrasound the vets found a Transition Cell Carcinoma - not confirmed, but location on the bladder etc...every vet since then (three weeks ago) advises that she has 6/8 months at best before ..... Anyway, we took her to our normal vets on Saturday for a check up on the HGE/Pancreatitis and a vet we have not seen for years advised that she may also have diabetes. He
  12. I think I will look into this...thanks for the suggestion
  13. I think at the heart of this is my own anxiety/sadness..I just don't want Polly to die...unrealistic, but when emotions are involved....
  14. Hello...I haven't been on here for ages..change of circumstances...but my girl, Polly (8 years) has been diagnosed with congenital heart failure - about 10 months ago now - been given a max of 2 years. The vet at the time prescribed Vetmedin - which Polly has been taking morning and evening. I went to make my usual phone call to the vet at lunchtime to order another bottle and the vet nurse tells me that it is legislation that I bring Polly in ever six months when she is being treated for a chronic illness. Now, Polly literally cries when she goes to the vets so I said I didn't want to put
