This morning, at 2:30 AM, my little Pom woke us up screaming.......
I grabbed a towel, wrapped her up and cuddled her, talking to her,
trying to calm her, and David grabbed my phone to call the Vet on his
emergency number, and bless that man forever, he called back within
a minute.....he could hear her screaming and said meet me at the office.
So here we went, he got there about 3 minutes after us....he asked if
we wanted to put her on IV and sedate, and I let him look at her, and
he thought as we did, that she had a stroke. I said no, I didn't want her
suffering, because she had had a seizure, right before we left the house
that was bad.....she passed over the Rainbow Bridge in my arms with
David's hand on her head.
I am thankful God let me keep her as long as He did, 15 years of being
my little shadow....every step I took she was right behind me. The past
few days, I had to carry her out to go potty because her hip hurt her, and
I am thankful that last night, when I fixed supper for us, she knew the smell
of spaghetti and she loved it, so I cooked her a half hamburger, and a pot of
spaghetti for her and SammyK. She had her favorite meal, and then cuddling
I don't think I will ever get the sound of her screaming out of my head.....
She knew she was so loved, and I am so sorry it ended like this, but to watch
her suffer, just to be selfish and try to keep her with me, was not the right
thing to do.
Sammie, we will miss you but I know Junior met you at the Rainbow Bridge, and
you are together again.
