A Day for Decisions

It's time to put the lid on today. It's just after midnight and I need to be up in six hours for church. After doing a lot of thinking and the discussions regarding Pip, I'm calling the vet for an appointment on Monday. It will be sad, and no doubt I will be doing a lot of crying, but it's what is best for Pip. In the meantime I'm going to enjoy the last weekend with her. I am under a hundred notifications, so I've made a lot of headway today. I hope you all had a good day today. Time to say goodnight and I will see you all back here later today. Thanks for reading. Pip and me on Christmas

That was a hard decision to make. I am glad you are doing what is best for your dog.

Yes, it's time. She's barely eating now, and has found a place to hide in my office, so I have no choice.

@just4him Sounds like she is looking for a place to die as I have heard animals (pets) will tend to try and go off to find a place to hide and die.

that is a sad thing to have to do - i send you hugs and prayers as you stand with Pip at her time of departing this ordinary earth to be with some wonderful heavenly angels . He can join my Shilo - whisper to her your undenying LOVE and as her to send Shilo my love and kisses as I miss her so - Be brave - the both of you

Pip and Shilo can meet my Labby as well. She left us two years ago. They can be friends and play together. Labby is a good buddy to play with, she's been with me all the time for my first two pregnancies. Sending my love to these three lovely dogs.

Thank you @Inlemay. It will be hard. I will be sure to tell Pip to say Hi to Shilo and my Rascal who departed this life six years ago just after I got Pip. Shilo was a beautiful dog.

@kaka135 Our pets are so much a part of us. It's good to know Pip will have some wonderful playmates when she crosses the rainbow bridge tomorrow.

Yesterday I was busy in the afternoon and I had no time for myLot, I am still going through notifications. I am so sorry about Pip, do not show her that you are sad, they feel our sentiments. You know that this is the best to do.

@TRBRocks420 No there isn't and this will be my second dog I'm putting down. I put Rascal down six years ago.

She has cancer, and the time has come to put her down. It's not an easy decision, but one that must be done.

@ridingbet She was a very good dog. Gentle, kind, non-aggressive, loved to smile, I wish I could have captured one of her smiles but she wouldn't smile at me when I was taking her pictures. She loved attention, and she knew when she was naughty, and did it on purpose - that was when she smiled at you in a 'gotcha' kind of way. I'm going to really miss her.
