God speed Kaos, been sick to my stomach most of the week. Wishing you the best Candice and family. You have done what God and the rest of us knows was the best.

I just wanted to thank you all again....for helping me walk through the first part of this terribly painful journey. It truly helped me get out my tears through writing and reading everything that you all were kind enough to post.

I hope it helps others in the same situation.....just having an outlet to read and get your tears flowing sometimes helps...or at least it did me.

I mentioned before, but it is worth mentioning again. I truly didn't understand when people said there is no way to prepare yourself. I understand now....there isn't. You just have to make the best of each day you are blessed to have with them. When the end is near it will take every fiber of your being to just keep going. It truly felt like someone was sitting on my chest and twisting my stomach...it still does, just not as much. Love them every day...take lots of pictures, every time they nudge you for a pet...don't be too busy..you'll wish you had all those moments back. My oldest son said it sadly best...he said "I don't ever want to play video games again....every time I was doing that or something else I could have been playing with Kaos" Broke my heart.....I assured him he was the best boy Kaos could have asked for...but sometimes it takes a kid to remind us of the obvious. Cherish every moment.

You and your pet are in my thoughts. I cried reading this looking at my two pups . I am so sorry that you are going through this..death is a hard thing and it is even harder when death has to be based off of our own decision. If only they could speak to us with words... their eyes and bodies never seem to give enough information. and those eyes..keep us hanging on.


You will meet again on the other side.

they are all so incredibly special. want to share something my dh says...

he says, "when one goes it allows us to know another one" (since we can't just have an unlimited number of dogs at once). i hope that someday when the time is right that will be true for you.

take care, many blessings.

I am so sorry for your loss. I do feel your pain. Since losing my dog last week to Bone Cancer, every day is a roller coaster of emotions. I even cried in class today...it was not good. Some days are better than others.
Just know , you have helped others.
