I want to thank and let all of you who care so much. Merlin had to pass on to the rainbow bridge this morning. His heart ,cancer and the stress the last few weeks were just to much . The vet and I felt it was better to let him go on a fairly good day, we sat on a nice grassy part of the vets lawn and I held him. He should be back home in a week I plan to find a nice container for him and make a shadow box with his papers and favorite toy and pic.
Here is one of the last ones of him .
It was taken with his gift swap from Robilee.

loved to see him off on his journey. Rest In Peace Merlin.

Kay Its strange but of the 2 big kids left Dogan is the one watching the car ,like wating for him to get out. He has been glued to my side when ever I go out . I guess Tims big boy has made himself mine.

Thank you all . I have been saving his fur for a year now knowing this day would arrive . I still have to figure out what I'm going to make from it. But that will be a while.
I know this is shocking for you all as I haven't talked much about how sick he has been . Just the way I am all of you asking for somany prayers with things that could be cured and his couldn't be I just felt like it would have been a burden for you all . I do thank you for all the kind things now as I send the next while cring off and on. You are all great. Thanks.
Robilee your gift made the last couple of days wonderful for Merlin he ate all the treats and snuggled with all the stuffies. Thanks for making his last week so pleasant. you will never know how much it helped.

Corinna, I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Having had to make the decision last week to let Oreo go, I know what you are feeling. It is so sad to let them go. Oreo was having a good day they day we put her down after a very bad day the day before. In my heart, I know it was the right thing for her but it didn't make it any easier for us. If you need anything pm me.

RIP Merlin! Run with Oreo and all the other Rainbow Bridge pets!

RIP Sweet Merlin :( That picture of Merlin is just preciious.

Rest easy sweet Merlin

05-14-2005, 09:34 PM
Oh no! I am so saddened by this news. I keep thinking this can't be. I just saw pics of Merlin with my gift package. Ohhh, I'm so sorry Corinna. I'm so thankful that I got my package to Merlin in time. I only wish I had gotten it there sooner. I just don't know what to say:(

Merlin is in God's hands now and I know he is running and playing at the Rainbow Bridge. Now he is in no pain. Play hard at the bridge sweet Merlin and please say hello to my Chloe.

Hugs for you Corinna. I am so sorry for the loss of your Merlin.

Thanks all of you knowing ,helps so much.
Kay thanks for the cross posting. Merlin had nbeen ill most of his 8 1/2 years, I bought him knowing he had heart problems. I was blessed to have him as long as I did, He had an illregular heart beat that after about 4 years no med. lasted more than 4 months regulating. So we decided to just let it be. After his getting in to my 1lb chocholte bar. It messed up his edrenale system so I just treated him with natrual things to make him comfy . But the move upset him so that he started to chew at his tummy . On Thursday I knew it was time as he woke up, and had chewed a open wound on the penal sheath. The vet and I set the Beauul Sat afternoon as his day. It was sunny and peaceful , He was listing to the birds sing and watching the horses fun . ( Country vet with great lawn and trees.)
I really this morning know how much I depended on him , I had an diabetic episode and luckly hubby was here to notice, usually Merlin alerted me to it before it happened. It's going to be hard to make sure I test more often.
Thanks for all the lovely thoughts.

05-15-2005, 05:40 PM
Oh my gosh. There's been so much sadness around lately. :(

I'm so sorry, Corinna. He was lucky to have you.

R.I.P. Merlin. :(

Corrina, I'm sorry to hear that you had to help Merlin to the bridge but it really sounds like you did what you had to do.
Please know that you will be in my thoughts and prayers &
I'm sure Angus is at the bridge showing him around right now.

05-16-2005, 07:39 AM
I guess I don't have to worry about him getting Picked on . With 2 rotties (Dana and Angus) beside him. :)
Thanks I'm slowly being able to think of him and not have a total malfunction. Lots of LES though.

05-16-2005, 07:43 AM
I bet Angus has a big red ball up there and he's showing Merlin how to destroy it properly. Gosh, we've lost so many beloved PT pups recently.. so many. :( I feel like i've lost one of my oen each time, too.

Corinna, hugs to you and everyone else... I'm just a PM away.

05-16-2005, 10:10 AM

Corinna, I am so very sorry that I missed this thread. What an awful shock and a heartbreaking loss :(. I loved your sweet Merlin boy :(. I know what a heartwrenching time this had to have been for you.

Merlin, I bet by now you have met all the RB angels, and you romp and play to your heart's content beside all your new friends. Please watch over your Momma from above, oh how she misses her boy :(. You'll meet again someday, never fear. Momma will never forget you, and holds you dear to her heart for all time. Play hard at the bridge dear Merlin, until you meet with your beloved Momma again someday and can take your place at her side once again.
