My old faithful

My old faithful

Morning guys

Hope u all are as good has can be. The sun is shining today, but I feel like I have been run over by a bus.

On Saturday we had to have our old dog put to sleep she was 14 and not been well infact she was only At the vets on Monday.

But unfortunately she was no better she had a tummer on her bladder and she had not weed all week right,was just hoping maybe more pain killers but vet said if it was her dog she would do the last kind act that she could, so we agreed.

I sat with here while she went to sleep kissed her good night.

So please say a little prayer for my old faithful Stella.

We are down to one dog now from 3 she is only 18 months old a little lost but we are not getting another one two keep her company that's how we ended up with her got her to keep Stella comany.

Thanks guys

  • Sorry you had to make this very difficult decision our compaignon left us a few years ago but still miss her. We were lucky in that she died on the way to the vets and had been active until 2-3 hours before.

    Also all the best for your PIP although I might wish this on my enemies for a day to three ;-)

  • I am happy to hear you were with her at the end. So many don't have the ones they love with them. I know that must have been a comfort to her. I am sorry for your loss of a loved one. I know how bad that hurts. Just please take comfort that she is out of pain now. Remember the good times you had with her. Let that be your memory of her the good times. I have no doubt she will still watch over you. Very big hugs

  • It's such a sad time isn't it, only people who love dogs will understand the heartache, but you know she is in a better place now out of all the pain, think of all the wonderful times you had together over those years, RIP Stella.

  • ah so sorry to hear your sad news. We have three doggies and love them to bits. We've had a few ups and down with our Billy this year and he needed a big op on his back. I was in a right state . they are like part of the family. Good luck with your PIP, I have mine tomorrow and feel sick with nerves.

  • Ho you have yours tomorrow please let me know what happens at it.

    On my letter it tells you to park on hospital car park, but I am a person that likes to know where I am going Evan though I won't be driving because I won't be fit to I also will be to nervous.

    So we had a run on Friday to see where it was and how to get to it.

    Well my husband found it easy, and low and behold there's a car park right out side the door,hum think they give you the other car park instructions just to see if you can get there from it.

    Wednesday at 9am I can't wait till it's over but already decided I will loose my car because I watch a video of someone who could only walk with a framework and use a wheel chair when that gets to much and she lost I have no chance I only use a stick or sometimes I can't get out of bed but apparently that's to be over 6 months of the year.

    Any way I will still be alive.

    Will look out for your post.

  • I had to change my venue as it was on third floor! So now in different building but ground floor. Hubby coming with me but getting taxi as too far to walk from car park. I don't hold much hope either. I have ME and fibromyalgia and arthritis. On a good day I can walk my garden which is 39 metres with my stick but on bad day can't do it. I've just got esa support group. I rarely drive anymore as neck too painful to move. Oh well what will be eh. Good luck with yours. Let me know how you get on.

  • Ho well you most tell them about the bad days mostly I do know if you varie with your symptoms you have to have them over 6 months of the year. Which boils down to 4 days a week.

    Good Luck .

  • So sorry to hear about your loss my friend. I am thinking of you.

    Soft and warm hugs,

    Elizabeth x

  • Thank you so much. I feel the hug I need it. 😢

  • That is just heart breaking xx

  • Yes it is but I am trying to think of the good life we gave her she was a rescue dog in the first place, she had a good 13 years with us.

  • We had our Border Collie from a young pup and yes you do cling on to the happy life they had xx

  • Poor you it hurts so much even when you know it's the best thing to do, sat here weeping at your loss

  • Ha thank you so much I send a tissue to wipe away the tears.

    We had to take her to a diffarant vets ours were shut. We went to pets a home in colne they were lovely offered me a cup of tea or coffee.

    Never been offered one of thoughts at our vets.

  • I am so genuinely sorry for your loss. We had to make this very hard decision last October when our dear Charlie dog suddenly got ill and within 2 days he was gone. I felt guilty about getting another dog couldnt bear the house without one so we looked around and like fate saw an ad for our dear Eddie (picture of him shown). He is a very different character to Charlie but still loving and very intelligent. I dont regret getting him one little bit even though I still miss our Charlie dog terribly. My heart goes out to you. Gentle hugs Joolz.x

  • Ho we done that for years first it was when I meet my now husband many years ago.

    He had holly and I had Stella. Then holly died so we got sooty to keep Stella company, then they told us Stella won't last much longer so we got Goldie to keep sooty company.this time before Stella died anyway sooty a cocker from a pup got what they called this ragge and started biting every one that came into the house. So eight months went by and Stella is still with us.

    AnywY we got grandchildren so we had to re home sooty in fear of her biting one of them.

    She went to a good home no kid or other dogs infact the manager of the south lakes zoo assistants so she got a full tour of zoo and settle down.

    Mean while Stella still going. 7 months later so a totally of 18 months.

    Now we just got Goldie and that's the way it's stopping now.

    She is only 18 months old and we are in our sixties .

  • I am so genuinely sorry to read that you have lost your friend, and I would like to offer you my deepest condolences. At least you were there at the end which I am sure was greatly comforting for both of you.

    I would also like to wish you all the best for your PIP assessment on Wednesday.

    All my hopes and dreams for you

  • Thanks Ken but I have given in to that now,let them do there worse I have resigned my self to loosing the car but will fight for any thing else I loose.

    Only did 6000 miles in three years.

    So what a car us a car I can't make them understand I think,it all depends on who you get.
