I am extremely sad to say that the 15 wonderful years I got to spend with Minnie came to an end this afternoon. She has been sick recently and was suffering from congestive heart failure. As her condition worsened, we made an appointment with the vet this afternoon. She was comfortable and died on her own as me, my mother, and father were with her and said goodbye. I am now 21 years old, and got to enjoy a wonderful childhood with Minnie as we first met at the end of my first grade year. Although I miss her and have been crying all night, I know that she is no longer suffering and I know I will see her again someday. I was only 6 years old when we first met, but I clearly remember the car ride home in my dad's old two door Ford. She slept on my lap during the entire ride. With no other siblings, the relationship I built with Minnie soon strengthened beyond what words can describe. I am so blessed to have been able to have a wonderful dog like her, and will never forget the love we had for one another. Although today has been full of tears with no end in sight, I am so happy to have been able to be with her for her final breaths. Even though she was not conscious during these final moments, I am confident that she heard me talking to her and was able to pass peacefully. Our last morning together was full of love and I will always have a special place in my heart for my Minnie. I haven't been active on this forum for years, but I felt like this was a wonderful place to express my feelings and connect to others who understand what I'm going through. Thank you.

I am sorry for you loss.
We had to say goodbye to our dog that we had for almost 15 years this past November after 2 strokes, the 2nd one unable to recover from.

It is so sad and I still cry when I think about her.

Lots of hugs to you!

I recently watched some videos on youtube about pets passing. Psychics say that the spirits of our beloved pets are always around us. Thinking of them keeps them around I think. One that I saw even said that our pets pick us, and then they influence us on pets we pick after them. Maybe, maybe not, but I can see it being a possibility. The circumstances surrounding how I got my dog now, and the personality traits that she has, just fit with that belief.

I'm also sure that your Minnie knew you were there. I'm so glad you stayed with her. Too many people leave the room and I think that's so sad. The last thoughts and feeling our pets should have in that time is one of comfort and love and peace. We are the ones that can give that to them.

I'm sorry for your loss. RiP Minnie

Thank you for your kind words. This has been a very difficult time for me and my family, but we are all coping with it and thinking about the happy times we had with Minnie.
