Brandy my beloved pet...member of our family

Brandy was laid to rest last Friday, Oct. 30th. It was one of the hardest decisions and days in my life. She had a tumor in/near her nasal cavity that was making it difficult for her to breath. My husband, Lon & I had every intention of dropping her off at the Vet and letting them take care of it. However, I couldn't bring myself to leave her alone and scared. I ended up holding, comforting her until the end. We are picking up her ashes today. I'm hoping having her home again will help. Cara

Cara I think it is one of the hardest things that you have to do for your pet and friend but I'm sure you have no regrets being with her - it hurts and I'm sorry for your loss. Know that we are thinking of you.

My heart goes out to you. I know this pain well!!! Please know that we are all thinking of you and asking God to comfort you in this time of grief over your precious Brandy!!

Yes, Cara, you will never regret staying with her until the end. I stayed with my little Nimpkee right to the end. Hardest thing I probably did in my life and will ever have to do in my life but well worth it. If I had to do it over again, I would do it the same way all over again. Sorry to hear you have lost your little Brandy though. My girlfriend lost her little girl about a month ago and she uses our little Snickers as her therapy dog now. It is so cute to see her with him. Know we are thinking of you and praying for you during this difficult time. Hugs from Canada

It's never easy to do...but you will always be glad you stayed.

I share your sorrow in losing your beloved pet. Brandy is surely frolicking now in pet heaven. I have had a few dear pets that had to be put down because they were so sick, and I still remember them so fondly. They were all individual creatures that have brought so much joy and comfort in our lives. We have a corner in our backyard where our cats have been buried, and there are days when I feel their presence. I try to plant a perennial at the site every year, and that helps ease up the loss.

So sorry to hear of the loss of your pet. It will take time for your loss to ease, but it will. About 9 years ago I had to make the same decision for my beautiful calico cat her kidneys had failed. I now have 3 cats who help to fill the hole she left.

What you did was a blessing for your pet. She felt loved and that is the important part. It is soooo hard, we've had to do it twice and we both wind up sobbing. We had to put a puppy down (she had Parvo when we got her from the shelter but no one knew) that we had only had for a few days and I still regret not being there when they put her down. It is awful at first but it does get better over time. You always miss them though. Sandy

Hi Cara, I know we have already talked, but just know that there are many more people who hurt along with you than there are those who are heartless. (We both know who I am talking about!) What you did was the ultimate act of love. It said you loved Brandy enough to let her go to save her further suffering. She will always be with you and no one will ever be able to take away the years of memories. Love, Mary

Sorry for your loss. Until we got our dog I could not understand the connection people had with their pets. I know when Freckles time on this earth is over, it will be very hard on us too. I'm glad Brandy is not suffering any more. You have lots of great memories to carry you through, but for now the tears need to flow and that's okay.

Cara, I'm so sorry about your beloved friend. You did such a good thing, staying with her until the end so that she would know she was safe and loved. You put her feelings ahead of your own. Bless you--Joana
