My sympathies are with you. We had to go through the same pain with our late Heinz 57 - Jimmy - back in July. The day Jimmy had 'the injection' was horrible & will stick in my mind (& that of my wife) forever. But, amazingly, life goes on & little more than a month after Jimmy died our beautiful doodle puppy, Sooty, came into our lives.

Our thoughts are with you tomorrow. Be brave.

So sorry :( . It's a great age, but I know that doesn't help - it just means it's that much harder to say goodbye.

we took milly to vets this morning ,and they have put her on a drip to help her kidneys ,but i think at 18 and 5 months old they are just prolonging the outcome ,they will phone me later today and then i will now the verdict,but she is blind and death a swell ,she copes ok but as i said to vet i don't want her suffering if in any pain ,i will know more later.

The vet phoned me today and said ,they had done an x ray and they saw something on lungs ,they said it could be fluid or cancer ,and her breathing wasn't good .They said they could give her another drug and see if any better tomorrow but at her age wouldn't be good ,so i decided to have her put too sleep ,i saw her and she had a drip on front paw and one on back and she seemed very uncomfortable i stayed with her a little and gave her last kiss ,but as i move her it hurt so i do wish i had done it yesterday and not put her through it.My little granddaughter gave her a kiss a swell and then john took her out when they put cat to sleep she was very good and said milly going to Jesus .I brought her home and buried her in the flower bed ,going to miss her so much,i even let dexter see her for him to say goodbye.RIP my little milly mo.

A sad time
They bring so much love and joy into our lives they leave a huge void when we have to say goodbye
It takes time to heal and be able to remember all the good times
Wish you strength

Don't have any regrets, Elaine... You gave Milly a long and happy life with your family. And you did the best for her at the end. It's a dreadful decision to have to make - we always hope that our much-loved companions will simply drift peacefully away in their sleep - often, this is not to be... You made the right choice at the right time - it's just that grief sometimes makes us question ourselves.

Our pets have things to teach us, and your little granddaughter, in being able to say Goodbye to Milly has learned about loss and death; about how it is sad but also natural and therefore not something to be feared - bless her, although she will miss Milly (as will you all) she will be comforted too.

It was a very good thought to let Dexter see Milly, now he won't be wondering what happened to her as he might have done if she had simply left the house and not returned... Sleep well, little Milly, safe in the garden of your family.

Sending hugs,
Anne, Ianto & Wyre x
