I just wanted to let everyone know that has been waiting on news that sadly we walked Rosie over Rainbow Bridge last night.
She had been slowly slipping from me over the past couple of weeks, and yesterday and Wednesday were awful... she would only eat for me, and lst night when her Poppy came home, her tail didn't wag, and that cut me to the bone. The decision was made when after her dinner she laid on her couch whimper-breathing, which she had never ever done before, even after her close call with bloat. I was finally accepting of her telling me 'enough', and so at 8:30pm, Robert the vet accepted us with open arms for the last time.
If I'm honest with myself, Rosie had been ready for quite some time, it was me refusing to listen to her signals, as well as her love, that kept her with us for so much longer than I think even I expected.
I miss my girl so keenly even my teeth hurt.
We're having her cremated, and will scatter her ashes at Pambula, a placed she never saw, but will be with my Dad, and he and Daisy will look after her.
