This morning when I woke up, the first thing I did was look for my dog, Princeton. (I have written several posts about him). When I found him, he was out in the middle of my yard in a daze. I called for him and he recognized me and came over to the steps. Once I got him into the house, he wouldn't/couldn't move and was breathing hard.
He has been doing so very well. In fact, I cut down on his dog food, he started losing some weight and has been able to get around much easier. I felt like we had gotten over the hill. Until this morning.
I immediately made an appointment with the veternarian and my friend and I were able to get him into my car.
There was only one thing the vet could do for him and that was to relieve him of suffering. Sadly, he couldn't relieve me of mine.
My heart is broken. This morning, Princeton went over the Rainbow Bridge and is now running through the beautiful green fields.
I will miss my dear loyal friend.

Thank you Erin. I appreciate your kind words. True. It is so hard to lose a pet. He was an “old” boy, but he had been doing good until last night.
Every time I read the sorrow of someone else who has lost “a dog,” I see Daisy, our human-like pet/dog that fell victim to brain cancer a few months ago. I am sorry for your loss.

My condolences, PJ. They are important members of our family, don’t you find? And they leave just as much of a gap when they’ve gone. Big hugs for you.
Thank you Tony. Yes, he was certainly a “family member” and was with me for 12 years. He was about 2 years old when I adopted him. So he was an old boy, but it was still very painful to lose him.
My heart aches for you.
Thank you. Just as mine aches for you for your loss.
Thank you Cat. I know that you have been grieving over the loss of your beloved pets too.
Am so sorry to learn this. Your description of Princeton’s last moments were very touching and remind me of our own 15 year old fellow who breathed his last on my brother’s lap after he managed to give him a spoonful of milk. RIP Princeton.
Thank you so much for your kind words. I know you personally know how hard it is. Again, thank you.
