Rest In Peace, Chrissy Girl!

My mom called me yesterday to tell me that she had to let her little Chrissy girl go yesterday. It was sad, but it was also time. She had been working so hard for so long and yesterday her kidneys were to a point where there was really no recovering.


She was my mom's heart dog, so it's been hard for her (even though she's had some time to acclimate herself to the idea that it would probably happen soon, as she was fifteen, that doesn't make actually letting her go any easier. My mom said that she sat with her until she went, and she couldn't have imagined a better way for her to go than that.

Even though Chrissy struggled for the last couple of years, she never really lost the pep in her step until the very end. She was a lizard-hunter and loved getting chin rubs.

Rest in peace sweet girl! We'll see you again soon! And I promise, you're going to get a gazillion chin rubs and lizard hunts when we see each other again!

Your mother sounds like a strong decent human being. Taking one's dog to the very end of the road is so tough but such a fitting gesture for a companion so worthy.

15 years, doesn't make it any easier but what a nice run.

RIP Chrissy girl!

It is so sad to lose a much loved pet.

I can relate to your moms experience with this. I decided to be there when my 12 year old labrador got cancer and had to eventually be put down. I still to this day get teary eyed thinking about it and probably always will. She was an amazing dog.

I wasn't going to go in (because it was so hard to accept) but then my sister made me realize something.. she said "she was loyal to you, and so you should be there for her and be loyal. Do you want her to be scared and uncomfortable with a stranger - do you want the doctor to be the last person she sees?" and that REALLY opened my eyes. I was there for her and I will never regret it - no matter how hard it was to see her go.

I am happy that I was the last person she seen and I hope that she remembers me!! I am sure both of our dogs will remember us and the good times we had, and when we eventually cross the rainbow bridge, they will recognize us because we were loyal to them too!
