Default Today Zeke will run free again.......

Oh boy the day is here. We are trying so hard to act "normal" for Zeke. I don't want him upset. He is so in tune with my husband its scarry. My husband had liver problems Zeke got liver problems, my husband had a ruptured disk and lost feeling in his legs and got CES. And Zeke 1 month later did the exact same thing. My husband feels bad he feels bad and vice versa. Those 2 have a bond that just cant be broken even in death. Zeke loves to go for rides so he will enjoy the ride to the vet and he even likes the vet believe it or not. But everyone who ever meet our Zeke just loved him.
Anyway we know we are doing the right thing we will stay with him until his last breath. And then have him cremated and bring him home with us until one day we pass and he'll go with us.
My goal today is not to let Zeke see my crying I will be ok for him and my husband.

I'm soo sorry that you have to go through this. It never is easy, I had to do the same not too long ago and it was one of the hardest things I've had to do.
Just take comfort that you will be there with Zeke and he will no longer be in pain.
Rest in peace sweet Zeke.

I am so sorry. It bwas 6 months since we let Daisy go. It was the right thing as she would have tried to go on for us and that would not have been fair. I think that zeke will still be w/ you both in memeory and spirit. Daisy was my husbands pride and joy and she was her daddy's girl. My thoughts are w/ you and your husband take care.

I was thinking about you and wishing you strength for today.

When I took my cocker spaniel in we went through the back right away and she inserted the catheter and gave him a light sedative. I hugged him for several minutes then nodded at the vet and she gave him the last injection. He snuggled his head in the crook of my arm and just sighed and that was it.

There was no struggle and no pain, Alex was in a lot of pain at the time so knowing it would end was a big comfort.

I'm sorry. It's the one final thing you can do for him: Take on the burden of grief to spare him from pain.

Prayers your way.

Wishing you strength; it is the toughest act of love. I had to do it too many times and I know it breaks your heart.
