|My Sonny is gone. Around 9:00 this morning. I'm lost without
him and my heart is broken. He went downhill yesterday, and his quality
of life was gone. He still loved to eat and had a big special breakfast
this morning. The vet thinks the bone cancer had spread to other organs,
and we did see a huge change over the weekend. He could barely walk, and
he started to cry a bit, which is not at all like him. John and I made
the decision late last night that this morning, barring any miracles, would
be the time to give him our last kindness and act of love. I held him in
my arms as he slipped peacefullyinto his deep forever sleep. He was so
special to me. In the 14 years since he was born we have never been apart
except when I was in the hospital. He was so smart and kind and beautiful
and special. Today is hard and I need a bit of time to accept that he's
really gone. I'm only glad he has his wings now and the diabetes is gone,
the osteosarcoma is gone, diabetic cataracts, hypothyroidism - all gone.
He will always hold such a very special place in my heart. He'll be with
me forever now, no matter where I am as I carry him in my heart. He knew
how much he was loved.. and he still is.
