  1. Dear old girl. Do you have a photo you wouldn't mind sharing?
  2. Hugs to all of you, never an easy time
  3. So sorry to read this scottsmum, he's such a beautiful boy. It is such a difficult decision, one that I made recently. For me I went with quality of life, there was no dementia involved, just a 'broken' body. I too was up 2-3 times a night in the final 6 weeks and it was exhausting. But we do what we have to do and what we are able to do. Please don't feel guilty, you are the ones experiencing this and you need to be able to manage both physically and financially. Hugs to you and I am sending you strength at this challenging time.
  4. I'm so sorry to hear this, may she rest in peace and may you feel comfort in knowing you gave her a passing with dignity.
  5. He sounded like a little character! Im sorry he has gone, I am very sorry for your loss
  6. Thankyou westiemum i miss her everyday. Catch up would be nice
  7. I'm sorry to hear about your Ernie. I lost my polly nearly a month ago, and I agree it hurts.
  8. Thank you, it has been hard particularly as I have a few other things going on at the moment also. It would be nice to come home to have that unconditional love and friendship waiting at the door! Maybe another foster soon and perhaps my own new companion in the not too distant future. I wish you all the best with your beautiful Zena
  9. Sorry to hear that Maddog, it seems it is an insidious disease
  10. I lost Harley my lab just over 12 months ago and polly my greyhound 11 days ago. When I first lost Harley I think polly did miss him. We fostered 2 greyhounds over the 12 month period, with the last one just 4 months before polly died. i think it gave polly something else to focus on.
  11. Thankyou it is still quite raw for me. I am pleased to hear zena is still enjoying her little outings. I hope her and molly are able to continue to enjoy each other for a long time to come
  12. Sorry to hear about your girl I am also sorry to say that I have just lost my 12.5 year old greyhound to a tumour in her spleen. She had an ultrasound and bloods but I decided in her case that surgery was not in her best interest. Her belly was also distended. I had her for just over 4 weeks after diagnosis. She was on antibiotics which made a big difference to her demeanour as she also had a temperature with her initial diagnosis. She ended up on prednisolone each day to help ease her discomfort. She seemed comfortable right up until the last weekend when I noticed her belly was a bit bigger. We spent quality time and yes she got whatever food she wanted/would eat. I made the heartbreaking decision to let her go when she could no longer get up and walk easily. I also lost my 14.5 year old lab just over 12 months ago to the same thing. Your last sentence reasonated with me as I thought/ hoped the same thing with both of my dogs. It sounds like Zena is still happy and comfortable so I wish you much more time together.
  13. What a beautiful old soul, may she rest in peace
  14. Great story, thanks for sharing. Oldies are hard work but oh so special.
  15. Your puppy is gorgeous!!
  16. I just wanted to say that I think you are doing a great job and you seem to be educating yourself very well!
  17. Rest in peace sweet amber, so sorry for your loss.
  18. Nice work Bart! So lovely to see and look at all of his toys! Lucky boy.
