We helped Profit to the bridge tonight. She was in constant pain and didn't seem to ever be resting comfortably. Her breathing seemed to be raspy as well. I have been reading a lot of posts about knowing when the time was right. Someone said 'it's better to be a moment early than a moment too late'. I was watching her deteriorate so fast and didn't want to make her suffer. Someone else said to think of their three favorite things and when they could no longer do two of them it was time. The only thing that made Profit happy lately was food. She didn't have the energy to carry her stuffies and she even lost the desire to search for yard brownies. I know that she is pain free now and waiting for us at the bridge. She finally let me get a picture without giving me the raspberries earlier today.

I'm so sorry for your loss.

You did the right thing, and Profit will be waiting for you at the bridge - giving you raspberries as you cross over to meet her... :)

Profit, God Bless you, sweetie. How we will miss you, sweetie! How you blessed us all.




Oh Mommy, Please don’t cry

You know of course this isn’t good bye.


This may be the last time you touch my fur,

But you’ll feel me close again for sure.

Mommy, I do not ach any more,

I run and jump and am not sore.


Close your eyes Mommy, and go to bed,

And to the rainbow bridge you’ll be led.

Mommy, oh Mommy, there I’ll be,

And for a bit you’ll be with me.


But by morning you have to wake,

Do not worry, it was not fake.

Oh Mommy just close your eyes,

You’ll see my face and hear my cries.


Mommy I will wait here for you,

You know of course I miss you too.

But Mommy Please don’t cry,

You know of course this isn’t good bye.

I am so sorry for your loss......It sounds like it was the right time for her. It is never the right time for us and being able to give that idea up and be completely for the dog is so difficult.

Oh Sue, my heart skipped a beat when I read your topic. I am so very, very sorry for your loss of your dear sweet Profit. Heaven has one more beautiful bright star tonight. May you and your family find comfort in knowing that you gave your beautiful baby the best home and all the love one greyhound could handle.

I am so sorry for your loss. The house must seem empty, and your heart must be breaking. I hope that the wondeful memories that you made with Profit will bring you comfort in the days ahead. They are never with us long enough.
