Run Free, Sweet Girl

I had to let Darla go this morning, she was no longer enjoying life, she was in pain and could barely walk, the lymphoma was affecting everything, everywhere....she went peacefully, I held her and told her what a good dog she is, how much I loved her, and that she will now be free of pain, free to run. I hope I had the timing right.....she will be missed, what a good, good dog she was....

You were her best friend. You gave her the gift of being free from pain and suffering. She always knew how much you loved her.

I am so very sorry for your loss.

My blog about grief The reality is that you will grieve forever. You will not get over the loss of a loved one; you will learn to live with it. You will rebuild yourself around the loss you have suffered. You will be whole again but you will never be the same. Nor should you be the same, nor would you want to. Elisabeth Kübler-Ross

You answered her prayer...she crossed over as a pet that was enveloped in love and will never be forgotten. She will be with you always. It is not the end because "love is as strong as death....Many waters cannot quench love, nor can the floods drown it. If a man would give for love all the wealth of his house, It would be utterly despised." Song of Solomon 8:6-7

:f_red I am sorry she had to leave.

 

God speed to you little girl, knowing how very much you are loved and will be greatly missed.

You fought a battle with dignity and with grace, so rest well

So sad when we have to let them go, but a blessing that there is the peaceful euthanasia option when they need it. None of us who truly love our dogs will ever actually let them go at anything other than the right time. As my vet said to me when it was near Angel's time: "Only you could possibly know your dog well enough to be able to decide."

Maybe your girl will get to meet my Angel, Mona, Misha and Kerry there at the Bridge. Hopefully the natural healing process that is 'Grieving when you don't hold anything back' will soon return happy memories of your girl to be the first things that come to mind when you think of her; and maybe too you can teach future dogs all the things you enjoyed learning about together.

There's a bittersweet little poem called "The Legacy" on my Angel's photo gallery at PBase.
