Tonight we said goodbye to this little angel. She was a trooper throughout her entire life, but ultimately we lost her to brain and nasal cancer. We were still in the process of getting further testing back on her nasal cancer when the brain tumor began to show signs of a rapid health decline. She was experiencing seizures at night time and ultimately losing her ability to use her back legs. Once regaining strength, she would pace the house back and forth in the same pattern running into things and getting stuck in corners. It was time to say goodbye, even though it was the hardest decision I have ever made.

You were my first dog adopted at 12 weeks, my best friend, and my everything. I will miss you everyday, forever. Im not quite sure how to go on without you here. Your sister, Serena, also is unsure of how to cope. My heart breaks knowing I wont see you at the window as I come home. Not hearing your tags/collar jingle as you come trotting down the hallway. Not being able to cuddle every waking and sleeping moment together.

Please give me strength to continue on and celebrate your life.

RIP Audrie

Oh that sounds heartbreaking, it's bad enough to lose them but to watch them struggling is an extra kick in the gut. Sorry for your loss.

Losing a valued friend, one who has been at your side for many years, is so difficult...
but even more when you have to be the one to decide when to let go. I hate it and
I'm so sorry you have to go through this.
Grief, it's such an exhausting and painful thing to endure. You and
Serena will comfort and help each other get through this time of sorrow. Time to
remember, time to grieve, time to cry, time to heal....it's a roller coaster and I'm
right there with you in the front row!!!
Hugs

You are my Heart Dog and I miss you so much
we'll do High 5's when next we meet
