My lovely white faced furry baby left this world today. She and I knew it was time for her to go but we let the other humans in the house keep us going on with the medication and the episodic seizures. Last night she couldn't catch her breath and after the seizure she looked up at me and I knew I should get a good night's sleep for the decision I had made.
We have a vet who came to the house, housecalls, what a concept. Anyway, we love Barb. I called her this morning to ask if she could meet me at one of the clinics she subs for vets on vacation and sure enough she was working at one 2 minutes from here.
Willow said her goodbyes to the grands, to SM and Shelley and she and I had our last car ride together.
Thanks for all your support during our "thinking" time.
She is now running and playing with her brother Murphy, just waiting for us to join them. I am at peace with letting her go but will grieve deeply for a life cut way too short by and unseen and unexpected something.
Rest in peace my Fat Elvis, my Large Marge, my mena, mena, Willowmena, my bestest and sweetest.
I will miss your sweet face and gentle manner......the whole family will.
