    Teddy

    Original Thread

    At our appointment on Saturday we made the decision to have Teddy put to sleep. While at the vets office alone (about an hour) he had several seizures. They weren't bad but in the past week or so his seizures went from 1 or 2 a day to about 2 an hour. We knew a diffrent medicine wouldn't help, it never really helped. We felt it was best for him if we allowed him to go. It was so hard; I can't describe the pain it was holding his head while they put him to sleep. Several times I wanted to ask them to stop but I tried to be strong for him. I'm sorry it took so long to post, it has just broken my heart, I didn't know what to say. I still don't know what to say. How can I describe the 12 years of love, devotion and happiness he brought into my life?

    Teddy's favorite place was the my grandparent's house. They called it "the farm" and he knew what it meant. If you asked him (when he could hear) "Teddy you want to go to the farm?" he would jump around and bark. Even when he was old, almost blind and deaf if you took him up there he would run around like a puppy. We paid to have him cremated by a company, his ashes should arrive the end of this week. Next week we are making a trip to Pennsylvania to my grandparentís farm where we will spread Teddy's ashes so he may forever play like a puppy.

    I just miss him so much, what am I going to do without my sheltie boy?

    I'm so sorry Ash Teddy was a beautiful boy. He was one of my favorite PT pups.

    I can't imagine the pain you're going through. Just know that he was a very lucky dog to have such a loving mum like you.

    I am SO sorry, Ash. Losing a long time friend is the hardest part of life. Be comforted by knowing that what you did you did with love AND Teddy will always be with you.

    {{{Hugs}}} I am so sorry for the loss of your special pup. I understand how hard that decision is. I (and Teddy) know that the decision was made with love and an honest desire to do what is best for him. Play hard at the farm sweet Teddy.

    Oh, dear, so sorry. Rest in peace, Teddy - I am sure there are plenty of critters that need herding up there at the Rainbow Bridge.

    Ashley, you know he will always be with you, really, curled up in a corner of your heart to send you a smile when you most need it. And I think laying him to rest at the farm is perfect.

    Hugs and prayers being sent your way.
