    Default Drover has his wings now.

    He's gone now. I feel so ashamed as i couldn't stay with him.
    They bought him out to the waiting room to say goodbye.
    He had a little blue bandage on and walking his wonky steps
    and a big smile on his face, "there's my mum" .
    And then they took him to the surgery rooms.
    I didn't have the courage to be with him.
    I'm sorry little guy.

    R.I.P. Dear Drover.

    Run free and enjoy being pain free !


    'Rambo'smum' - Please do not beat up on yourself. Each of us do and deal with things very differently – so there will be no-one on this forum that will think less of you because of it.

    You were with Drover in so many ways and you were there at the end. The last thing he will remember is your face – which was evidenced by his smile when he saw you !

    So enough of this being ashamed and not having enough courage ! All I have to do is read through your posts about Drover to know just how much courage you do have and have shown.

    Be kind to yourself, take care and when you are ready, I would love to see some more photos of Drover.

    Oh "Rambo'smum" I am so sorry for your loss.

    It is very traumatic to lose our beloved pets. Drover was so happy to see you, remember that smiley face ... if he'd gone for an operation he would have gone away to the other room with the nurse too, please don't beat yourself up.

    Please take time to grieve, after all the buckets of tears, smile and think of all the fun times you had, he is at peace now and pain free, you loved him without limits. He's always and forever in your heart ...

    So sorry R.M.
    He had a lovely smile , and now he's free of pain i bet its even bigger and better. Its going to be tough for you over the next few days but i'm sure hes watching over you and wants you to remember the good times....not the sad times.

    R.I.P Drover old mate....

    Rambo's mum

    You did the best you could. I'm not sure I'd be in there either. Last time my mum needed to PTS the old family dog - I made my brother go with her.

    Grieving is its own thing, whatever way it happens for you is the right way to do it. From feeling guilty and ashamed, to sad, and relieved, and angry and sad again and laughing about the good times.

    It's what you did while he was alive that really counts ... including having the courage to know when enough was enough. Play free with my mate Jack!

    I teared up reading your post. Please don't beat up on yourself, you did the right thing by him right to the end.

    RIP Drover Boy

    Peace to you rambo's mum.
    this has been one courageous journey you have shared with him, right till the last smile.
    grieve freely, you have lost a 'arm', or so it feels for a while.

    Thank you everyone.
    I didn't think he got under my skin as much as he has........
    very empty back yard today.
    I still have Rambo, so he's helping to grieve.
