Sleep tight Meg

Post by Brenda and Ruby » 03 Apr 2008, 19:48

Sadly we had to have our 15 year old Border collie cross put to ssleep last night. We have had Meg since she was 6 weeks old. She has been a lovely dog and mellowed over the years. She accepted our Ruby but did try to keep her in her place. Some of you will have met Meg on our Doodle walks.
Meg has had several strokes over the last 4 weeks but the one last night told us that she had had enough. To her last day, she had 2 short walks and was eating well, but last night we knew it was time to do the kinder thing for her. She died very peacefully within 3 seconds of the vet giving her the injection
Till we meet again at Rainbow Bridge

Brenda, We are so sorry to hear of the Passing of Meg. It is a very brave decision to make, we have had to do the same in the past. My comfort was lighting a candle for all my babies, it helped so much. Our thoughts are with you and your family, and William and Walter send big sloppy kisses to Ruby. Love, Jill and Gary x

Thinking of you all in this very sad time and our thoughts are with you all.
Our dear sweet border collie had three strokes last year she was thirteen years old we also had to make this very hard choice,it was not easy.
Take care and we are thinking of you all.
My Colsy and you lovely Meg are free running in the hills together both at peace,and free as the birds.

Oh Brenda, I'm sorry to hear about Meg. She was such a little sweetheart. I remember when we brought her up the road in the car for you at Clumber Park, she plodded along slowly with us, and got in so agreeably with us. You will miss her loads, and so will Ruby I'm sure.
It helps to think of them at Rainbow Bridge, my Bracken is there too, she was a border collie too.
Night night Meg. x

Oh Brenda I'm so sorry. It's awful isn't it that one day you know you will probably have to make 'that' decision. I honestly think they let you know when they have had enough and I think it's the final kindness that you can do for them. I can only imagine what you are going through so sending all our love and best wishes to you and Reg and Ruby.

Puppies should be warm clean and well, walk away if they are not.
