Godspeed, Allie Mae


This morning, Allie Mae went to Heaven. Two weeks ago (or so), I noticed loss of muscle/fat mass behind both shoulders. I increased her food (she was back to eating everything!) yet she kept losing weight. She was not in pain nor distress until this morning (though she peed in the house for two days - totally not like her). I made a drop off appt yesterday for today when she didn't want her supper; this morning, however, she had lost neuro function of her hind legs, her front legs were splaying and extended and, most important to me, she looked scared. So, I pulled her up on my lap for a last cuddle, put her in the car with a favored blanket and took her to LaCroix and Monica. Her head rested in my hand as Monica injected her - she did not fight, she just relaxed and was gone.  She had fought to live earlier after her lipoma surgery; this time, she knew it was time to go Home. I take comfort in knowing I will see her again and certainly was blessed by the year and a half she was at Silverwalk thanks to R. and our local humane society.

  6. My ♥ is aching for your aching ♥. The part I absolutely hate about loving my animals so much is having to say good-bye when they complete their Circle of Life.
