Just an update guys, four weeks ago I made the decision to let my girl go to sleep. Her dementia got too much and her legs got worse. I'm still so lost and broken but wanted to update you as you were kind enough to offer me advice. Her last day was so special, I took her for a nice "walk" in her buggy, she ate so much steak, myself, my partner and good friend who watched Suki while I was at work all had a sleepover on the floor before the vet visited the next day. I fed her steak as she gazed into my eyes and slipped away while looking at a smiling daddy and eating her favourite food. It was the hardest things I've ever done, and I know it'll get easier, but I just can't see that yet.
She was my life, a lap dog who was at my side for 13 years, she could never be left alone, and for her last year or so, needed a lot of care, so it's such a shock to the system. I've lost many family members, but never felt grief like this, and I never knew it involved physical pain. I ache for her so much and think of her every minute of every day, but I do know I done the right thing. Again, I appreciated the advice you all gave me, it did help with the final decision. xx
