Hi everyone. Thank you all so much for the paw mail and rosettes. They made me feel so loved. I went to the Rainbow Bridge today. When I passed at 12:43am this morning, my loved ones were with me. My Mommy was hugging me and holding my paws as I took my last breaths. Kilo's Mommy (Megan) even came back home to see me.
As you all know, I was having a really hard time yesterday. Around 2:00pm I fell down and couldn't pick myself back up. My Mommy tried so hard to help me, even bringing me food and water. After about 2 hours, I seemed to settle down and Mommy thought I was taking a snooze. Mommy called her daughter Megan (Kilo's Mommy) and asked if she would mind coming home to help me get around. When Megan got here, my eyes were only partly open, but I could hear her and smell her. She got down onto the floor and layed with me and petted me. I wagged my tail because I knew that she had come to see me.
I think I must have had a stroke earlier that day because I really couldn't move--couldn't even pick my head up or open my eyes. Megan carried me into my bed and put my blankie on me too. I was breathing so heavily, and my lungs sounded so congested (probably the congestive heart failure from the earlier heart attack). My Mommy and Megan kept telling me how much they loved me and what a wonderful doggy I was. They slept in the living room with me--my bed in the middle, Mommy in her chair, and Megan on the couch. Something made Megan wake up about 12:30 am and she just stayed awake watching me. Then she woke Mommy up and told her that she thought this was it. They both hugged me and loved me as I passed on to the Rainbow Bridge 13 minutes later.
I feel so wonderful not having any pain. I know it broke my Mommy's heart that I had to go, but I promised her that I would be there waiting for her in Heaven, watching over her. I truly loved being her best friend.
