I am grateful for all he brought in my life, and extra grateful that he is no longer in pain and discomfort.
I know that if Gibson had the choice he would have like to have stayed healthy . Healthy and alive. He was very annoyed that he was ill. He complained because he was in pain .In the end I just wanted him to be OK, - and there was no cure- the only way was the thing I hate most, to go to the vet and put him to sleep.
Did you ever have to make this sort of decision? It's something that leaves you feeling very bad and awful, as surely everyone prefers life to no life.
I am also grateful for the embroidered and monogrammed linnen handkerchiefs my mum sent to the Modern Country Gentleman for his birthday.
Did you ever have to make this sort of decision that I had to make this week ?
And do you think we have the right to ? I still wish a merciful passing away for Gibson in his sleep would have been possible and achieved somehow .
I am , thought, very grateful and relieved he is no longer uncomfortable and in pain.And grateful for the great memories.The vet suggested to crack open the champagne and celebrate his life, as he lived to the old age of 16.
Not today.But tomorrow I may just do that.
