Cosmo passed away peacefully with the help of Dr. Hensley at approximately 11:00am Pacific time this morning.
A couple of day's ago, we made the difficult and heartbreaking decision to end Cosmo's suffering. Even though we had the option of having the procedure performed in our home, which we would have liked, we thought it was best to bring him in because of Quincy and the kitties. Besides, Cosmo always loved going to see the vet.
Cosmo was somewhat excited to be there and even greeted the technician with a bark, and he hadn't barked in weeks. We were allowed as much time as we wanted with him and were fortunate enough to have had the procedure performed in the "family" room vs. a regular exam room. His Dad and I stayed in the room through the entire procedure and watched Cosmo go quickly and peacefully.
The last couple of weeks were the worse for Cosmo. He had a desire to eat and drink but it was a struggle for him because of the mouth tumor. In the past few days, he could barely stand without assistance. We used a harness for his upper body as well as a hip harness, but you could tell he was frustrated and confused no matter how positive and patient we were.
The tumor in Cosmo's mouth was bleeding more and he was starting to cough, most likely from the lung nodules. He was tired, and we just knew he was suffering and that what he had was a terminal illness.
I will probably write some more about Cosmo in days to come, but I will not be on the computer very much until then, which I'm sure you will understand.
We want to thank our friends for their love and support. Always.
Momma and I are so very sorry about Cosmo's passing. He was a sweetheart and he will be missed. We're thinking of you with lots of love. Rest in Peace, Sweet boy, Cosmo...
Our thoughts are with Cosmo and his loving family. Sending love and tailwags.
Sophie, the kitties, and family
Cosmo you will always be one of my favorite Dogster Friends.
Rest In Peace
Hugs all around to your whole family. I know they are missing you so much.
I'm so sorry that you've come to the bridge, Cosmo. Autumn and I will show you around, and we can help you sprinkle some angel dust down to your family.
That's what we ask,
The truth is,
we may never
be able to know
for sure why.
But we do know
that there is no single
"should have done"
or "could have done"
or "did" or "didn't do"
that would have
changed that why.
All that love could do
Holding you close in our hearts,
Remo the Red and the rest of
The Chicago Crew of Angels

IMy vet didn't have a living room set up, so I waited and paid the extra money to go to the newly remodeled emergency clinic. It was peaceful and I was able to hold Ava, my kitty, thru it all. I'm glad you were there for Cosmo. He is a beautiful boy.
