My heart aches for my baby. I had to put him down after I realized he was suffering, and was so uncomfortable. Our last goodbye was one that will forever be etched in my memory. He looked up at me with those big brown eyes, as if to say it's okay. I have to go now. His heart couldn't take anymore. I'm glad that he was able to see his brother and sister before he went. He was the type of dog that would dance when you came home from work, and always show you love and affection. I knew something was wrong when I came home, and he wasn't at the door greeting me. Now i have to accept that this was the best thing for him. No one should suffer. He will always be my "Pops".

my sister lost her 20 year old tabby named Amber (born 1989) on May 2. She found her less than a year after she got married. Amber was approximately 8 to 12 week kitten at the time she was found. She was buried in the family yard after she was put to sleep at the vet. She was preceded in death by two cats and one dog, and survived by her human family members and two other cats.

We also had to make the same decision on April 22, 2008 for our beloved 15 year old chihuahua Ginger. It was the hardest decision that my husband and I have ever had to make.
Ginger took sick only a few days before, and after a coulple of trips to the vet, we were told that she was suffering from kidney failure. That was like a stab in the heart. She had been up the night before crying and barking in pain, and the pain medication was no longer working for her.
We loved her so much, and could not stand the thought of not having her here with us, but we also could not see her suffering as she had been in the previous days. There was nothing that could be done for her, and we knew that she was in severe pain.
We questioned whether we were doing the right thing, and I still do question it, but deep down I guess I do know that it was the right thing for her. It has been very hard to deal with, but I know that she is no longer in pain.
We both did the right thing for our beloved babies, they are no longer suffering in pain.....we are, because they are gone and our hearts are broken.
