My baby girl went to the Bridge yesterday about 4:30.  It was very peaceful for her!  I know I did the right thing but right now I feel so guilty and lost.  Thanks everyone for your prayers and support.  It will be awhile before I get over this but your care will help a lot.  I was able to spend the day with her and tell her how very much I loved her and how much her love meant to me.  She seemed to know that she would be whole again and even wagged her tail which she hadn't done in 4 days.  It will be so lonely without her but now she is whole and playing with Nacoma again, chasing butterflies and eating all she wants.

Dear Wolfgirl,


I am very sorry for the loss of Cassie.  This was truly a beautiful thing you did for your precious Cassie girl.  Euthanasia is a very difficult decision to make.  I did the same thing last May.  It haunted me for weeks, even though I know I did the right thing.  It is normal to feel the way you do, but please try to not let this guilt take over your thoughts.


You did everything you could for Cassie.  She didn't have any quality of life with her legs not working and you helped her to die with dignity.  It is wonderful that you were able to spend the last day with her.  I couldn't spend much of the last day with my Maggie Rose because my sister was in surgery that day.


I wept as I read how Cassie wagged her tail, I am sure in anticipation of being whole and free from any pain and discomfort.


Your life will change without Cassie and yet the many beautiful memories of her will serve to comfort you in the days ahead.


My thoughts and prayers are with you.




Rhoda (Maggie Rose's Mommy)

When I first held you in my hands and looked into the eyes of love
My heart filled with wonder that someone so small could fill my life with so much
Love and happiness. I watched you grow from an adorable furry puppy to a regal Queen
We bonded in the twinkle of a glowing star and that bond will always join us by a silver thread
My hands and arms had to let you go for now, but you are forever held in my heart
I see you sunning yourself in the warmth of the sun and you feel the kisses I send
On the rays of the sun. Until we are one again I give you my heart to hold, and soul to touch
With these hands I will reach out to you and gather you close and never let you go,
Until then I send you hugs on the colours of the Rainbow. Love always your Mama

I am so sorry that you had to go thru that.  It is good that Cassie is no longer in pain.  You told me a few nights ago that she was not happy about her situation.  You did the best thing for her. 
 I know that doesn't make your pain any less, but you have no reason to feel guilt.  Should you feel guilt for stopping Cassie's pain?  No, you shouldn't.
 I admire the hard decision you've made; I pray that you will find peace with yourself.

You are in my thoughts and prayers.

I was so very sorry to read the news of your dear Cassie. I guess I feel so close because last month I was making the very same decision for my beloved boy Otis whose illness left him in the same condition as Cassie. It is little comfort I know, but at least she was able to pass peacefully to the bridge with you by her side, feeling the love and comfort that you continued to give her. You always had her well being at heart, even above your own feelings. It is so difficult to make a decision like that for our pets, even when we know it is the best for them. I hope you will find some peace as you remember the love that you shared with Cassie on this earth.


I know that both Otis and Cassie are bounding around, knocking other dogs over, across the bridge.
