Goodbye my little baby girl.
I come on here now and again for a read but i don't post too often.
I just had to say goodbye to my 14 year old yorkie Heidi last week.
She had cancer which was diagnosed 18 months ago.
The vet warned us it could spread to her lungs, she coughed now and again but monday last week i noticed the cough sounded more severe, the next day i noticed her breathing had become more rapid and she was off her food. I took her to my vet and she was not happy with her at all, she gave her a steroid injection, an anti-inflammatory injection and some anti-biotics.
She got her appetite back a little tuesday night and managed to eat a little of my dinner while sitting on my lap.
She was very restless all Tuesday night and wouldn't lie down to sleep even though by now she was exhausted and her breathing had got worse, I had her in bed with me all night but i didn't sleep much.
By 6am the wednesday morning i knew that it didn't look good...
I phoned the vet and got my 2.30pm appointment brought forward to as soon as they opened.
The vet listened to her breathing and suggested we could try diuretics to try and get rid of the fluid on her lungs and through my tears i told her no, and that i thought the time had come to finally let her get the sleep so she desperately needed, my vet agreed with me.
It was the hardest thing i have ever had to do. The vet was wonderful and coped very well considering myself and my husband were almost hysterical by this time.
She took her away for a minute to give her a sedative and when she put her back in my arms she was very peaceful.
It was very quick and she left us to say our last goodbyes.
I wasn't prepared for how bad i felt...i knew it would be tough as she had been a huge part of my life for 14 years, i was only 19 when i brought her home at 8 weeks (i'm now 33) I felt physical pain and my chest felt heavy for days. Its been 8 days now and i can manage to talk about her without crying so it must be getting a little easier...but i will never forget my little baby and life will never be the same for me again.
RIP Heidi...mummys little angel x

I'm so deeply sorry for your loss. I know how much you must have loved Heidi. Remember all the good memories she gave you. She is now at peace, she is in no more pain. I know this pain is the worst and your right, it does get a little easier with time.
Maybe one day when you feel your ready, you can love another baby.
Bless you and hugs and prayers to you and your husband.
RIP Heidi Please give Kloey a kiss for me!

I'm sorry Kezza for your loss. I'm losing my ten year old Yorkie to Cancer. He was diagnosed a few months ago with a rare tumor in his foot pad. I'm dreading when the day comes that I have to make that decision.

I'm so sorry for your loss. I had to put down my 15 year old toy poodle a few years ago. I had gotten him when I was only 18 and out of my parents' home for the first time. There's something very special about that first pet you have all to yourself, isn't there? He was always considered our first-born and was very special to me, my husband and children who were born years after I got him. The pain is very deep, I know, but hold on to the memories. You'll find lots of friends here who will help you cope.

My heart is with you, and understand your feelings. My 13 yo. Sophie was pts on January 23, 2007 and I sobbed for weeks. Not an easy decision, but the right one when they are suffering. It sounds like your baby was at the end of her life and needed your help to pass over the Rainbow Bridge.
Bless you. - Warmly, Deborah
Peace and Light, Deborah
