I can't do this without you........

This wasn't supposed to happen..... Not yet, Wednesday Harley was outside playing and running around being his goofy self, Thursday morning, I noticed he seemed aliitle off. Just acting weird. He took his morning treat before I left for work. I checked in on him thru out the day and the girls said he wouldn't go out and he had been laying on the bathroom floor for like two hours. When I got home and he did not get up to say hi, I knew something was wrong. Thought maybe he ate something or his arthritis was acting up. Took him to the vet that evening, an xray showed an enlarged spleen, bloodwork showed on the line of anemia, and some of his red cell counts were high. The vet said he was concerned and suggested I take him to the ER vet which had specialists. Once there, they did an ultrasound and I couldn't breath anymore. He had a mass on his spleen that was bleeding. Must of started the night before. They said they could stop the bleeding but it could start back up as soon as we walked out the door. Made the hardest decision of my life to not let him suffer, I said goodbye to my heart and soul. He laid on my lap with his head in my arms as I kept telling him I loved him so much and he was my best friend and gave him as many kisses as I could. Im numb and in shock. Its not fair. I can't go anywhere without seeing him or hearing him. I don't know what to do without him. The pain is unbearable. I miss you so much baby............

I'm so very sorry for your loss. It is never easy and for it to happen so sudden makes it twice as hard. He will live on in your heart in the memories and love you have for him and then one day at the Rainbow Bridge you will reunite. Hugs.
