My heart breaks -- I've been through this same thing too many times. I think we can take comfort in knowing that we are doing all we can for them while we still have some time left to share. Cherish the time you have left.

Yes, I think the NOLA funeral parade is great. I'd like to have some ritual at Wilma's death, but I think I'll wait til the vet has left, out of respect for him. I may bury some tokens with her in the grave, to represent things she can take to the next place.

I was reminded today by NCIS the more beautiful way of looking at death. If you are an avid fan like I am you will know that Abby is a southern goth. One of the things she does for any death is a Louisiana funeral music which at first is sad before the funeral, a time to morn. Afterwards, they play a beautiful upbeat, but still humble jazz. It is about moving on by not wallowing anymore because they had such a wonderful life and you can remember them as they were.

I hope this is not more upsetting. I just think it is a good reminder that while it is sad they move on, they were alive!

Crazy people don't really loose their mind, it just becomes something more entertaining!

Truth is a mass appeal to something.

Its hard to put into words how you should be prepared, its not like some article of clothing you can easily give away or a book. This is your heart that is at stake, you will suffer, there is no easy way to say it. Your saying farewell to part of your heart you have had for so long. But remember there will be a time again were you both will be reunited and will be happy once more. But right now you will cry, you will feel an empty void. This may sound harsh but I have been here before. it hurts like the whole world has forsaken you happiness. Just remember the good old days, make a collage of pictures about her that will help you laugh and cry about all you have accomplished together. Also remember we are here for you into this road of saying farewell. She understands, don't underestimate your friend, she knows whats a head for her and your trying to reassure her and she is comforted by this and just wants your love and hugs and kiss. I am sorry you have to deal with this, I wish life didn't take those we care about away but God will restore her and he will make her free from pain. She one day will be like you, Born and renewed in the light of God.
*hugs* I wish you the best of luck. I am here for you if you need someone to talk to, we all are. try to take one day at a time and don't think of her heath and wonder when the day will come when she goes to God and the Rainbow Bridge. Just comfort one another.

I'm fearing the same thing to come. My pony got a cough a year or two ago and now its become more of a hack. I've been trying to figure out how to prepare myself too. emoticon In the end though I think what matters most was that we gave them a good home.

Oh my goodness. It seems like you're doing everything you can to make her summer wonderful. It won't be much of a comfort, I'm sure, but knowing that you've done everything you can to ease her transition must give some comfort.

We're here for you. emoticon

My 30-year-old Appaloosa mare, Wilma, and I are spending our last summer together. She has arthritis pretty bad in her shoulders, and I am not working her at all. Our last winter had much drama, with her getting cast in snow pits and not being able to get up. Now she gets to hang out with her donkey and just enjoy the summer weather. A lot of it she chooses to spend in her nice, screened stall. I hug and talk to her every day about her impending journey across The Rainbow Bridge, our 17 years together, etc., but I know she doesn't understand. I have talked to both the vet and my neighbor with a backhoe, and I have 3 bags of lime in the barn. I am getting prepared, but how to prepare my heart...
