RIP Whisper

Hi,

Besides my Penny Black At Allsorts DT cards, i'm not sure if i'm going to be able to make a card until September -

Last night we had to make the difficult decision to let Whisper go to Doggy Heaven ( she didn't want her breakfast, then around 5pm last night i noticed Whisper's back legs had swollen to double the size) - the vet offered to take her into the hospital, but we decided she would only get stressed and we always said we wouldn't let her die alone - so after 11 years and 1 month (she was a rescue dog), we said our goodbyes - it are all feeling incredibly numb at the moment and of course every time i log on, it will remind me of her.

11 years is a long time, she came with us, when Alan and I moved into this house, so this is the first time there has been no Whisper and the house seems so empty and doesn't feel like a home at the moment - we are going away in a couple of weeks to Alaska, so that will help.





RIP My Baby Girl Whisper x

Oh Sam I share your pain and know that there are no words that I can say right now to make you feel better except you did the absolute right thing. When you love them SO much you have to let them go surrounded by the people they love and trust around them. We did it with Mog and when Suzy Loo's time comes will do the same. I shall shed a few quiet tears for you all and will be thinking of you xx

Sue said...

Oh Sam, I am so sorry, I am full of tears for you and your family. It is almost a year to the day since we said good bye to our beloved boy 'Ty Dog' who was our first pointer. I understand how difficult these days will be for you... You gave Whisper such a lovely life and at the end stayed with her on her journey to the Rainbow Bridge - no doggy Momma can do more...
Thinking of you and sending hugs...
(The only thing that mended our broken hearts was finding another pointer to adopt and now we have not one but two four legged minxs ruling the house)!
