Remembering Jasmine

Jasmine,

I can't believe this will be our first Thanksgiving without you here in our lives.
Our first one in thirteen years. Tears will be shed as I quietly remember how you sat there ever so patiently while Daddy carved the turkey the night before, no matter how long it took.
Your eyes fixed on his every move. Your eyes never left him. Waiting for any morsel, any crumb to accidently fall for you to clean up.
I had to release you from your pain 09-04-09 created by the drug I gave you. For this I am truly sorry. Your eyes told me you could take no more. You were telling me 'it was time'.
I will forever miss you Jasmine.
I will never forget the memories you left me.
The void will always be there.
Rest in peace my sweet baby girl.
Free from pain.
Free to eat again.
Free to wonder thru the flower beds again.

 

To My Sweet Baby Girl

Dear Jasmine,
Today marks 30 days without you in our lives. I still weep for you. I still look at the backdoor to see if you are watching me as I work in the flower gardens. I have to stop myself from asking if you want to 'go' when we run an errand. I am still getting up at 5:30 AM to feed you and checking the clock to see if it's close to 2:00 PM yet. I still have not been able to go for our evening walk-it's just too hard to do this without you. I still look for you when we go to bed. I am keeping my promise that I made to you. Our letter to the FDA about the drug that killed you is ready to mail. Our letter to the DVM board is going then also. The guilt I still have for giving you that first dose of ProIn weighs heavy on my heart. I am so sorry I made you take it but I trusted the Vet and thought it was what you needed. I will never begin to forgive myself. I hope you have forgiven me for what I had to do Sept 4, 2009. You were just so sick. You looked so unhappy. You had not eaten anything for 3 days. Not chicken, not steak, nothing. You would not even drink water when I offered it to you. Hope it's OK that I gave your food and cookies to a 'no kill' shelter. I have kept your toys and favorite blanket. We just miss you so much Jas. You became my child when the other 2 legged children left home. Please take care my baby girl and I hope you have found Hambone, Shakes and Budley at The Rainbow Bridge. Play, eat, run and chase lizards for us. I also hope that you see the candle I light for you every Monday night.
We will always love you and miss you and you will be in my heart for eternity.
Love,
Mom

Yesterday, Sept 4, 2009 I had to say good bye to my family. My Mom and Dad tried so hard to help me but I was tired of being sick and tired. They are so very, very sad.

I so wanted to eat but just could not-I so wanted to run and chase lizards-I just could not. It was all I could do to follow my Mom around the house or even go outside with her.

She is on a campaign now to tell everyone she can about a medicine I took back in July that triggered everything to go bad inside of me. It was ProIn!

I will miss my family so much but I will be joining my cousins, Hambone, Shakes and Budley. Even though they were way bigger than me, they knew I was in charge!
