A look at what interests me and keeps me sane in rural West Wales.
I'm so sorry Jenny. i thought he was really on the mend. You must be feeling numb. Sending a big hug to you.
Oh no. After all your devoted care and Tippy`s treatment by the kindest of vets. I am so sorry. Love to you and all your family.
Our pets become such dear companions--each one is missed, a little part of our daily life gone.
My heart goes out to you - all we can do as pet owners is our very best for them & you certainly did that (((hugs)))Much love, Willow xxx
I am so sorry. You and the vet worked so hard to make him well.
So sorry to hear that. They may be small animals but they leave big holes.I'm sending you a hug and a gentle word.Alistair.
It such a hard decision to make. Many condolences.--hart
So sorry Jennie, I'm sorry he didn't make it after all your efforts to save him. (((Hugs)))
what sad news to come home to. Poor Tippy, poor you, Leanne x
I am in tears for you, Jennie. I am so, so sorry.I will send healing, thoughts to you.Love and Hugs
So sorry - I am sure you will miss him. It is the downside of keeping pets - we get to love them too much.
So sorry, you did all you could.
Oh, my heart aches for you. Furpersons are such a special part of our lives and the ache they leave behind is a private pain.
I am so very sorry to hear this.((((HUGS)))
Thank you all. He was such a character and we had grown even more close during his illness. I just wish it could have come right, but the vet reckoned that there had been earlier damage causing problems and thought he might have had a knock from a car. I think it more likely he chased a squirrel and fell from a tree - he was gone about 5 weeks in the summer so anything could have happened during that time.I will miss him so much - his chirrups and head-stands where he rolled forward to have his tummy tickled and the way his long white-tipped tail bent forward over at the top, just like Alfalfa's daft question-mark hair in the children's film "Little Rascals".I look a proper wreck this morning - eyes all puffy from crying. It's like losing a child - but I'm sure none of you need me to say that, as you already know that heartache . . .
I'm so sorry to hear about poor Tippy,you did what was best for him & so did your wonderful vet.
I am so, so sorry.
(((((HUGS))))) Jennie, so sorry. :(
Oh I am so sorry to read this Jennie - poor you and poor Tippy. But you did the the right thing for him, which is all we ever can do at the very end. Sending you hugs xxx
Thank you all for your kind comments. Each one is like a hug. We did the best thing, but making that choice is never easy. It always feels like you are playing God. My children don't call me Softy Mummy for nothing . . .It's easier now he is gone and buried, because it was so difficult hoping he was going to get better, but all the signs stacking up to say that couldn't be. I tried everything possible, at least I can say that.
I am so sorry to hear about Tippy. I hoped he would get better. You did all you could - these things are so hard. So sorry.
