    Sometimes what seems like the most selfish thing...is the most unselfish thing you can do and you did just that for Mully.

    Time will heal the pain sweetie and time will emphasise the good times you have had together. Whenever you feel that tug at your heart...give Bailey a cuddle...knowing that Mully was her Mum and is a part of her
    This brought tears to my eyes. What a lovely post.

    Thank you so much...Im crying again.

    Bailey has not left my side since I came home from the vets yesterday. She normally sleeps in the lounge but even moved her "floppy" (her comfort toy) next to my bed and dragged the blankets from her bed down the hallway and next to my bed. She was next to me all night. Its like she understood that I needed her more than ever.

    We took Tyson with us to the vets to make it a bit more "routine" for Mully and he kept the vet nurses occupied in the waiting room...he kept "inhaling" the treats they fed him in 2 seconds flat.

    The vet gave me my privacy and left the room once her heart had stopped beating. I laid on the floor and cried and cried and couldn't let her go. Mum was with me for support and just laid with me crying, hugging me and stroking mully. I took all the time I needed. I walked out and Tyson started crying instantly as though he knew that she was gone. I took his lead and started walking out. He wouldn't come, he wanted his "mate". I finally got him in the car and laid in the back seat with him and cuddled the whole drive home.

    Mully didn't fight it at all. She has always hated needles and I warned the vet when he took her out the back to put the tube in her leg, that she might resist and to hold her head away. He took 20 minutes to find a vein and said Mully was fine.

    The biggest comfort for me is that I truly believe she understood and welcomed it. She was calm and cuddly. The kiss on the cheek was her goodbye. She didn't cry or get agitated at all like she normally does at the vet.

    She is at peace with herself now.

    Hope you are ok. Cleasanta said it perfectly. You know deep down that you have made the right decision for her. Just try to think of the good times
    My thoughts are with you as I know how hard it is to say goodbye to a friend

    Enjoy Tyson and Bailey today Judge, and don't be harsh on yourself. It's ok to be a bit relieved when it's all over. I felt the same with Holly, devastated but thankful it was over.

    to all of you.

    Judge,

    Sometimes they just know. You can read books, attend lectures, take classes and all that but I don't think we shall ever truly comprehend how insightful these creatures are.

    Oh Judge, I am so sorry. I have been crying for days, but this has started me again. Please give Tyson a BIG cuddle for me!
