Goodbye

Thursday, almost two weeks ago, I had to say goodbye to my precius friend
and dog ,Cleopatra.
I feel lucky to have had her for 14 years.
She was a really good dog and her limitations were only made by me.
I will miss her so much and it really hurt to have to make the decision
to put her down.
But I didn't want her to be in anymore pain and go through
treatments just so I could get a few more weeks with her , maybe months.
It would be very selfish and I loved her too much to do that.
So I had to make the decision a couple of weeks ago to put her down.
It was a very wierd feeling knowing that I was just about to let
somebody "kill" my dog.
I know that sounds brutal but that's how it felt at the time.

I was after all Cleo's mummy...

After she got her first injection that would make her go to sleep she
was just stood there looking at me and probably wondering why
I was crying and cuddling her like never before..
So she got a bit closer and licked away my tears .

The next second she couldn't stand up anymore and layed
down in front of me.
She rested her head on my hands and slowly went to sleep there..

After it was all over I really didn't want to leave her there.. all alone ..
on the floor. It really broke my heart to do it..
But I have to remind myself that I did it out of love for a faithful friend.
She gave me 14 years of friendship so I think I owed it to her
to let her go peacefully when the time was right before she got really
ill and in alot of pain



And I'm glad that I'm the last person she was with, along with my husband.

  3. Hi you.. Just want to say that I know how you feel. It was almost similar with my dog.. Which is almost two years ago now. It doesn`t go away, but it gets better, I promise.
    At least she had a long and great life, right. And she was an amazing little creature:)

    Hug...

  8. Wow, så mange teite kommentarer du har fått... noen leser virkelig ikke teksten, og tenker bare på seg selv..

    Godt noen iallefall ga en kommentar for å støtte deg...
    Jeg sitter med tårer i øynene og prøver å se for meg hele situasjonen.. dEt er helt forferdelig det der, å miste en sånn liten tass som ahr vært med en så lenge.. jeg gruer meg for den dagen vi også må gjøre det..
    Jeg ser at Tequila henger i en tynn tråd hver gang david ikke får puste pga henne, og dét er også vondt.. det henger en trussel i lufta lixom.. Men vi skal prøve å ha henne som utekatt først..

    Tenker på deg hver dag jenta... beklager at jeg er så fraværende om dagen... klems..

  9. Åh Anette, så utrolig trist :( Det er så vondt å måtte ta farvel med en så god venn. Man blir så utrolig knyttet til dem!
    Håper det går bra med dere, og at dere tar godt vare på hverandre, og trøster hverandre. Dere har heldigvis mange små, som kjemper om oppmerksomhet ;) Det hjelper sikkert godt til med å få tankene over på noe annet. De nydelige små menneskene! :)

    Klemmer fra meg, som tenker på dere <3

  10. Så utrolig trist... Tårene renner nedover kinnene mine. Det må ha vært en veldig vanskelig avgjørelse. Kjærlig, men grusomt vond. Man blir så fryktelig glad i sånne små venner.

    Føler sååå med deg.
    KLEMMMM
