    Saying "Good-Bye" to a wonderful friend!

    Oh my! This is going to be hard for me to type-but I gotta do it!

    Tomorrow my wonderful pal will be leaving me At 4:20 we made Oreo an appointment to be put to sleep. I really wish I didn't have to do this. To me it seems odd to call up and book your pet to be killed. It's just not right- but obviously it is needed in some cases. When I sit here and think about it, it makes me more and more mad and sad. I really don't want her to leave me! I don't! I don't! I don't! I just hope she has fun up in Ratty Heaven- she can play with Skittles, and her tumor will fall off of her, and she will be free of that !@#*%^&#$%^#&$(@#$%@#% tumor. She can eat all the cucumbers, carrots, apples, baby food, noodles, corn pops, seeds, meat, dandelion leaves (etc) that she wants, and she will never get fat. She won't be confined to a cage, but won't have to worry about predators.

    I mainly would like to say:


    "Thank you Oreo for being a wonderful wonderful pal! I love you so much, I hope you have lots of fun- til we meet again. I am sorry you had to suffer, I sure do love you honey! I will never forget you! XOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOX, by the way- when we go up to the cottage, it is going to be lonely up there with out you!"

    Awwwwwwww!! Poor Oreo! That must have been weird to call up a person and schedule a time for your pet to die. I'm so sorry!! Up there he can meet all of my gerbils, hamsters, and piggies, and he will have a jam! Maybe he will join that Rainbow Bridge Pet Talk our pets have made up! I bet you gave Oreo the best last-day of his life ever! Bye Oreo! I'll miss you!

    I'm so sorry to read this message. I know that you've been thinking about this for a while, but it won't make it any easier for you tomorrow. We will all be thinking of you and Oreo.

    Poor Oreo! I'm so sorry and I know that words will not help heal your sorrow. You did the best for Oreo throughout his life. He would die anyway in the state that he is in, and since it is hard to find a cure for this, I hope you are doing what's best to end his suffering. Give him lots and lots of last day treats, hugs, love, and best wishes on his journey back to God, on his very last day. I'm so sorry!!!!!

    This is going to be tougher on you than it is on Oreo. I'm just so sorry that you're having to go through it. It is never, never easy, but I just know that Oreo has had a good life with you, and you are doing what is best for him. That is the most unselfish thing we can do as pet lovers.
