Rocky *CGC*- With the- angels.

Gone but never,- ever forgotten- xxx

Today, I made an appointment with the vet for Rocky to be put to sleep cry

I'm distraught but know that it is the right thing to do.

Over the past couple of days Rocky has really deteriorated. His tumour is now double the size of a tennis ball on the outside so I can only imagine how big it is inside, he is very uncomfortable when he tries to lie down so now he has just resorted to standing up and trying to fight sleep. He cries randomly, I think it's out of frustration than anything else, wakes me up through the night ( atleast 3 times a night) and tends to get very stressed. He pants in the middle of the night which I'm guessing is stress and he's just very restless in general.

When I look at him, he's not his normal self. He has given up.

There's no life in his eyes anymore and I know he is done.

A lot of people on here told me that Rocky would let me know when he has had enough and I didn't know how that was possible. Now I do.

I have no doubt that he has had enough.

I'm distraught but know it is the best thing for him.

My mum, dad and sister are going to come and stay when the time comes which I am so grateful for.

He has been my best friend and constant companion for 10 years and it is the hardest decision I have ever had to make but my vet is and has been amazing and even he thinks Rocky is done now...

He will go in peace in the house and that is keeping me strong. I just can't believe I have one week left with him.

Thanks for all the support everyone has shown and I know when the time comes, there are some special people on this site that will help me through it.

Thanks Savvy,

I forgot to add, I'm writing this from my iPad so excuse the spelling mistakes and whatnot, it's rather hard to fix mistakes on this thing.

hughughug I am sooo sorry. This is the suckiest time in our dog-loving souls. Trust you made the decision thinking of Rocky. Don't let anyone tell you how to grieve..or for how long, but do lean on others. There WILL come a day that you will smile, not weep, when you remember him. hughughug
