My baby girl Pebbles will be 10 on Sept 6. She will not see that birthday. I have known for several days that she is dying and I can't do anything but cry. I helped Pebbles come into this world, and that was an amazing moment. I have loved Pebbles every single second of every day since then. Now that time is short, I realize that I haven't always been the best mommy to her that i should have been. I worked long hours, and got frustrated with her when all she wanted was a pat on the head. I am dying inside watching her everyday. I have been sobbing uncrontrollably for days. I don't know what would be worse, knowing in advance, or it just happening. Knowing in advance is just killing me more everyday. Looking in her beautiful face and knowing that soon I won't be able to look into her eyes anymore is just too much to bear. I love my little girl soo very much, and my heart is absolutely in a million pieces. How do people get through this???? I haven't experienced loss in my life since I was a child and lost my grandparents. I don't ever remeber feeling like this. This is the most painful thing I have ever experienced and it gets worse by the day..... I love pebbles sooo very much, and I don't know how I am going to say goodbye...........

Hi Pebbles mommy,
I'm sorry to hear about Pebbles. Please know that through it all, your love will be with Pebbles and you, and nothing can take that away. You are suffering from anticipatory grief and have begun the grieving process. Anticipatory grief can be very intense as you know that you know this is the end of this part of Pebble's life and your life together on earth. But know that she will be starting a whole new journey soon, where she will be safe and healthy and where you will join her one day. And, she will be with all of our fur kids and welcomed with open paws. If you open your heart, you will find comfort and receive peace in knowing she will no longer be in pain in her earthly body. And you may even receive signs from her! I will keep Pebbles and you in my prayers. kittiekat

I am so sorry for you and pebbles. All I can say at this moment, is cherish every single second you have left with her. Love her sooooooo much. Give her a thousand kisses and hugs everyday. Talk to her and tell her how wonderful she is. Hold her and cuddle her. Let her sleep with you every night. Spend every extra second with her. Take her outside and just sit with her in your arms. My Bella passed away within one week of being diagnosed with diabetes and pancreatitus. I only got to see her 3 out of 6 days of being in the hospital. She got so upset and stressed when she saw me the vet thought it was best to not see her. The last day I saw her (thank god) was the day she passed away. I cherished every moment with her while she was here with me...please do the same.

Spend all the time you can with your little one. She knows you love her, just reinforce at every opportunity. Waiting is hard. Saying good-bye is one of the most difficult things we will ever do in this life. Be comforted with the realisation that she will be at the Bridge waiting for you. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your loved one at this, the most difficult of times. May you find the strength to cope.

thank you all for your thoughts and prayers and hugs.... my baby girl passed away in my arms at 3:28 pm on July 13. She was loved every second of her life and I tried very hard to make sure she knew it.
When she was in my arms, she was fighting. I told her how much she was loved and that she would always and forever be in my heart and my thoughts. I told her that is was ok, mommy would be ok. I told her to go to the rainbow bridge and have a wonderful time. I promised her that I would see her again someday, and until then, to have a wonderful time and she would be free from suffering. She picked her head up, layed it on my chest and took her final breath. That was the most painful and amazing thing I have ever experienced in my life. My baby girl is at peace now and she does not hurt anymore. She is missed more than I will ever be able to express. She was my best friend, my baby girl, and my most faithful and loyal companion. She will never ever be replaced nor forgotten.

So very sorry for your loss. I know this is the hardest thing you have had to experience. She understood what you had said to her, there is no doubt. You were giving her the most precious gift we can give in return for their unconditional love and devotion and in her last breath she loved you very much for letting her go. When she went she left, as they all do, a piece of her in your heart, where she will always be. There are many here who will help you get through this most difficult time. Again I am so sorry for your loss. God Bless You.-----Jerry in Oklahoma. PEBBLES YOU KNOW YOUR MOMMY LOVED YOU SO VERY MUCH, THAT IS WHY SHE GAVE YOU PERMISSION TO MAKE YOUR JOURNEY TO THE RAINBOW BRIDGE. ENJOY YOUR NEW FRIENDS AND NEW YOUTHFUL BODY. KEEP WATCH OVER YOUR MOM AS YOUR OTHER COMPANIONS DO TO THEIR EARTH BOUND FAMILIES. THE DAY WILL COME THAT YOU WILL MEET HER AT THE BRIDGE AND YOU WILL BE TOGETHER FOR ETERNITY.
