So sorry, Carol Ann and Dionne. Thankful for Sweetie that it was so sudden but for you its heart breaking. No time to come to acceptance. Take care of yourselves.


so sorry to hear of the loss of 3 sweet souls today, may they rest in peace


Such a sad sad day, they travel the path to the bridge together. Carol Ann, Dionne (((hugs))) sweetie was so happy with you guys what a truly wonderful home she had to finish her time here.

Carol Ann

Thank you all. I am heartbroken. She has been a perfect little lady since the day I got her in December 2010. This was so sudden just earlier today I was chasing her outside to bring her in cause it started raining--she loved that game of playing hard to get. She was happy and seemed well and then just collapsed around 7 and was gone at 8. The only good thing is she didn't suffer very much--mostly just fear cause she couldn't get up. I held her and kissed her beautiful little face as she passed on. It was a privledge to have her and to love her and care for her in her last months of life. But we will really miss her. Be happy and run in heaven my little doll.


I'm so very sorry Carol Ann and Dionne -Sweetie was very lucky to have you in her life! The sadness never ends this week, it seems!


so so sorry for the loss of sweetie but she was a huge winner when you took her home to be a part of your family. hugs and kisses and a great big thankyou for loving her.


Shit again! Big hugs to you Carol Anne and Dionne. That picture of Sweetie in her purple coat makes me smile...she was such a lady...thank you for giving her the love and home she so deserved.


thinking of you Carol Anne and Dionne. Sweetie found her forever home with you and she really came into her own with your love ... she felt valued, happy, loved, and from the stories you shared with me, powerful. There is nothing more you could have given her, it was her time and she left feeling like she ended her life well with you. Thank you and hugs***
