Oh RC, I was so sorry to read this, and i know how devastated you must be. I just wanted to say that you are the most wonderful and loving dogmama. Go in peace sweet Sable.

I'm so sorry about Sable. It's such a tough decision to make when our animal friends suffer and there's nothing doctors can do.

I'm so sorry, lots of love to you and Sable. I was only faced with the "choice" of putting a dog down once, but she ended up "deciding" for us by passing away the night before we would have put her down. I wish you had more support IRL, but know that all of your ppk friends are behind you.

My thoughts and love to Sable and you and your family. You will all have a Sable-shaped hole in your heart forever, but try hard to fill that hole with good memories. Feel and honor the grief, of course, but remember all the love Sable had for you.

Euthanasia, saying goodbye, is the hardest, bravest thing we do as loving guardians for our companions. It is the final responsibility we bear, and you are bearing it well. You were lucky to have each other.

Hugs.

Breathe.

Thank you all. I really do appreciate all your kind thoughts. I told Sable so many people loved her even though they never met her. It was so so difficult, but it was time. She couldn't even hold her head up anymore. I was there twice today and there was a marked deterioration between when we left the hospital at 3 and when we came back at around 6:15. I got to say goodbye to her and tell her how much I loved her and sing to her a little. The actual passing was so swift and peaceful. The vet I liked best there was the one who did it and I was glad for that. She was very kind and even teared up a little herself. I stayed with Sable for a little while after she had passed, talking with my mom about all the memories of her. I miss her more than words can say and it is so hard to look at her bed and toys and know she isn't coming back. But at least she is not sick anymore.

Oh, raspberries, I keep tearing up over this. I feel so terrible for you. It sucks that she wasn't well enough to enjoy her last days with you. It sucks that you had to spend so much money and lose the battle. I was looking at pictures of Sable in our animal friends thread and a floofier more well-loved girl there could not be. Sable on the shore looking contemplatively out on the water, her vacations, her Halloween costumes. Playdates! Friends! So much doggy-smiling. So much love, the love shines through every shot. She had a wonderful, wonderful life and you gave her that. No matter how much it hurts, you created all this beauty and wonder for her and gave her a full, rich life that was all love and kindness and no pet could ask for more. <3 <3 <3...

So glad you got to be there with Sable and sing to her, and that the vet you liked could be there for you. I will remember Sable's birthday pictures and her eating her cake! Your story has really hit me extra hard because I have a Sheltie and that little face in your icon looks so much like him! If it means anything, being "with you" as you have gone through all this has been a reminder to me to cherish every precious moment with my dogs, to give them extra hugs and love, to overlook all the barking, and to remind myself to continue to appreciate them as many moments as we have together. In a way I hope this honors Sable's memory. <3

I'm crying. I'm so so sorry for your loss. She will be deeply missed, and please take care of yourself. It's ok to cry all you want.

I've been crying on and off all day thinking of you guys. I'm so so sorry this happened, RC. But I'm so happy Sable had you and you had her. And that we all got the chance to know and love her, too, through your pictures and stories. You're in my heart tonight.

I'm really happy that I took her on vacations and celebrated her birthday and things like that. I so wish I had more time to spend with her, but I'm thankful I have almost 11 years of memories (and photos, and video) of her. I bought a scrapbook and I am going to ask all my friends and coworkers and Sable's physical therapists and anyone who loved her to write down a memory of her in the book.

I know that this isn't something I need to think about right now, but I keep wondering if I'll get another dog. I haven't been without a dog since I was 6 years old and I feel bereft without one. But the thought of another dog sleeping in Sable's crate or playing with her toys feels really wrong to me. I know I have a lot of time to think about it though.

I think you will know when the right dog comes along.

I've been checking this thread every day, and I'm so sorry that this happened. From everything you've written, she was clearly very lucky to have you.
