They tear my heart


It's ten pm and I'm off to bed soon. I'm working tomorrow,
the dog walker and Trendy Carol are on hand tomorrow !!
The steroids and other meds kicked in and Winnie rallied again this afternoon
She's had more comebacks than Lazarus
I have a feeling it will be her last.
At 8 pm she finished a second small bowl of chicken and rice and peed like a horse on my lovely new garden lawn.
She then climbed heavily onto the couch and promptly fell asleep with a  sharp fart
But not before she shlepped over to me in my armchair
Where she stood , and raised her head for a kiss goodnight

These dogs tear my heart

    I hope both you and Winnie sleep well. She's a sweetie and you're a wonderful doggie daddy. Every bit of extra time together is a bit of grace.

    Hoping for even better news in the morning.

    Hugs!

  10. If it is Winnie's time to scamper across that Rainbow Bridge ... so be it! Hopefully ... easily in her sleep. Until that happens, we shall all be rooting for the old girl and for you to bear with it for as long as she keeps doing her Lazarus bit!

  16. Of course they do. And your heart would be smaller, colder and lonelier without them.

  17. Your heart ... and ours.

    There comes a time when all a person can hope for is that they do not suffer. It sounds like she's not suffering at all at the moment, which is good. But I know your relief is tempered with a heavy place in your heart.

    What a lovely character she is.

  22. It is so hard to let go. We had to take our Border Collie to the crossing. It was just heart breaking.

  25. She's having a wonderful life, and that's the most important thing to her. When their time eventually comes it's usually a relief for them; but a nightmare for us.

  26. If,, as sounds likely, she really is in the 'sunset' of her days, she couldn't be in a nicer, more comfortable household, surrounded by love and 'friends' every which way she turns, bless her.

  27. Awww, just look at that lovely fat face and those deep podgy wrinkles ... nice to see Winnie too ;-)

    Seriously I am so pleased she is feeling better. xx

  28. Cro's got it right. We do our best by our animal family but it's unbearable when they leave us. Hope she rallies for a good deal longer.

  29. And that goodnight kiss was a big thank you to you. They fill your heart and they tear your heart... but they FILL your heart and you fill theirs.

  30. They do tear out hearts. My life would be so much less without mine.

  31. Tears streaming as i read this. Those daily little things that they do suddenly take on so profound a feeling. She might be dying, but she is not going to let a thing like that stand in the way of her beloved bedtime routine with her faithful human.
