De laatste maanden hebben we nog met speciale voeding en medicatie geprobeerd om haar leven draaglijker te maken. Even leek het of de medicatie haar werk deed. En we dachten haar volgende week nog te verhuizen naar mijn zus. Maar deze week ging het plots slecht met Jones. Ze kon niet goed meer eten, wandelen of gewoon zitten en liggen.

  1. I’m so sorry for your loss. A decision like that is never easy even when you know it’s the best thing for your furry loved one.

    • I just read your post about Hunter. So sorry for your loss. My thoughts are with you and your family. Cherish the beautiful memories deep in your heart.

      • Thank you so much for your kind words – they are appreciated very much. Hunter has left a paw print on my heart that will remain there forever and always.

  2. So sorry about Jones and long life ahead in animal heaven, I believe! I lost a shared dog, Toby, about a month ago, first 7 years I was more in charge of walks but once divorced, I had an animal free apt. that was more in my price range so ex sent me a note saying Sir Tobias passed away in his sleep. He was a lab/german shepherd mix aged 14! I share some of your pain… Take care, Robin

  3. Sorry about your loss. We lost our orange and white boy Fiscal 2 years ago this October. He was our first kitty. My husband and I had only had dogs before then. I lost one dog after having him share my childhood and young adult hood with me. i had him for 17 years. Our kitty Fiscal for only 8 short years. To this day it still feels weird that he is not here. But it will get better for your as it has for us. Take care.
