Blog Take-Over

Hi bloggers,
Dana here Quincy's mom. I am taking over his blog for the day. As some of you may know I had to help my families Pomeranian cross over the bridge yesterday. As is to be expected today has been pretty hard for me. I went with my dad yesterday to take Peaches, our families 19 yr old Pomeranian to cross over the bridge. She was a fraile old girl she was blind, death, could no longer hold her bowls, and spent the entire night before whimpering in pain just to name a few things. So we all knew it was well past time to help her on her way, me especially. It wasn't something that any pet owner likes to do or looks forward to. Yet I knew it my heart it had to be done. It came to a point where I had to tell my mom (Peaches was "her" dog) that she was doing Peaches a huge injustice by making her go on. It didn't take long for her to agree and understand what I meant. It has only less than two years that me myself got the same speech about my first Husky Nanook. Like I was told in some strange way there is some comfort in knowing that your beloved pet if free from their pain and suffering. Which as hard as it is to swallow and even accept is true. I like I said went with my dad and I was with her till the very end, I held her close as the doctor helped her on her way. I kissed her and told her to sleep that all her pain and suffering would be over soon. She went very peacefully and actually looked at me as if she was happy. Happy that she could once again be young and pain free and that she could play frisbee and roll those big yard balls around on her nose. Man did she love doing both of those things. I miss her so much and even those she wasn't actually "my dog" I feel as tho I have lost one of my own. She has been around and a huge part of my life since I was 7 years old. I am going to be 26 so she had a great life but it never seems long enough. I know it had to be done and she is now happy and is watching over us. Playing with all the fur babies that went before her... Yet my heart still feels a miss and I am sad. Extremely sad that she isn't here anymore. Am I selfish for wishing she could be here with us still?. . Maybe but I did what I knew had to be done to help her and free her pain. May she watch over my family and know we all miss her so much and she will forever live in our hearts. God speed my dear sweet Peaches . . .

Very sad to hear about Peaches. It sounds like she had a wonderful life and you did what was best for her.
