My beautiful Lacy is gone.

This morning, Lacy lost her battle with cancer. In the past 48hrs the tumor seemed to grow to a huge size and late Thursday night when I was doing the final wash for the day I notice these big mean looking absesses. They broke open late yesterday and a bloody fluid began oozing and then dripping out of her. I called the vet but there was no way I could get her there until this morning. I upped her pain meds to as much as I could and as I sat here last night with her, she was in so much discomfort. She looked at me with pleading eyes and I gave her anouther 25 mg of deramaxx. All I could do was hug her and tell her I'm sorry.

This morning we took her into the vet's office and she seemed more ready, she even took liver treats that I gave her out of the DR's goodie jar which she would never do before. I think she knew. I held her in my arms as the vet gave her the sedative and we told her about how much we loved her and how she would soon be with Tucker and Palla and that we would come there too in 'a little while'. DH told her about the fishing there and again how much we loved her. When the vet administered the second shot I felt her leave. I know she did because a part of my heart went with her.

We brought her home and she now rest under the tree beside Tucker her mate and Palla her favorite pup. God speed my wonderful Lacy, I'll miss you till the end of eternity, and I'll love you twice as long.

Oh Sandra, I'm so sorry to see this. Even knowing that day is coming, and probably soon - it really doesn't prepare you, does it?

I am so very sorry. If it is any consolation, you did the best you could. You were strong and put her welfare first before your own feelings. The last face she saw was your's. You released her from her pain. When the time came for my Chessie, the vet came to meet me, he told me "This is the last thing you can do for her". A Sioux Indian lady who always liked Chessie, told me that their belief is that when we have taken good care of our pets, when it comes our time to die, they are waiting for us to take lead us into heaven. I do take comfort from the "Rainbow Bridge" - especially the part where the dogs are healthy and young and enjoying life, but are waiting for us. That's where your Lacy is now, she is healthy and strong, and she is waiting for you.

So sorry about Lacy. She's probably romping with Poohbear and the others now. She'll be looking down at you with all the love you gave her during her time on this earth. I will keep you and your family in my prayers.

Rest peacefully Lacy.
