Dear Janet

I know what it is like to lose a family member with four legs.

When our last, and final, family dog (Jess) had a lump that was "iffy", we decided that at the age of 14 an operation was probably too much for her (A border collie). It was about 8 months later that it kicked in and affected her brain, and Mum and I took Jess to the vet, both of us crying. He (the vet) came to the house later that day, and our dear girl went quietly.

What you are describing sounds like the other dog, that Mum & Dad inherited when my cousin died, aged 30.

Todd was a Norfolk terrier crossed with another that I can't remember (we used to call him The Ginger Whinger, as he begged for food, something terrible), and he lived to 17 yrs old.

He spent his last months sleeping, getting out of bed and piddling on the carpet, but come 6pm, he was stood at the door, waiting to go to the pub!

I just wanna give you and your family a great big hug, coz I know exactly what you are going through.

xxxxxx Jane xxxxx

((((((Hugs)))))), Janet. :(

I hope M feels much better soon and that H doesn't catch it, Del. :)

Glad to hear you're feeling better, Chris.

Wow! I can't believe how much I've missed on here! Sorry everyone. I must seem so heartless by not commenting before. I've just not had much chance to indulge in the forum in recent weeks. :( :oops:

My cat Dotty died in my arms this morning. She was about 22. I had her from CPL when she was 6 months. This year was hard for her, going blind, getting weaker and frailer, so for her a blessing in disguise is about right. I'm devastated.

Oh honey, I'm so sorry. At least she had a long life, and was much loved.

So sorry to hear. It's never easy to lose a pet. :(

I'm so sorry for your loss :( It must have been a comfort for her to be with you at the end.

I feel so sorry for you, Mongo. Please take comfort in the fact that Dotty died in your arms, knowing she was loved.
Janet, I feel for you too. Most of us know how painful it is to lose a pet, and how raw you feel afterwards. Image
