Getting Ready to say Goodbye

The Time Has Come

Well, we made an appointment with the Vet to come here on Friday at Noon. Abby's legs crumbled last night when she went to pee, and then she really didn't want to go back up the two small steps into the house. We haven't seen " the look in the eyes", that people talked about, but Dawn ( Abby's Mom) says she knows it's time. We can see the tumor breaking through her front leg, it's obviously very weak, and we definitely don't want her to cross the Bridge with a broken leg .
We've had a wonderful extra nine months that the Vet is just amazed about. It seems so crazy that we're crying so much before she's even gone. She's so alert and playful. The Vet said that we can change our mind, right up to the last minute. This is so tough a decision to make. I wonder if there are pet owners who feel that this is a decision they shouldn't make and they just let nature take it's course, despite the pain? For us, we are sure that we don't want her to suffer, and we're sure that this will be an act of supreme love. We just keep wanting "Just One More Day".

My moms says that she may be trying to tell you it is time. Please stay with Abby when she passes. Don't make the mistake that my Mom did with one of her babies, and did not stay. She has always regretted that she left her with strangers to die. Let Abby die with dignity and not when she is so pathetic she can't even walk and most of all celebrate the life she had with you.
Wags and prayers!
