I am brand new to the boards, but I would be very grateful for any prayers for my sweet Patches.  She has been having some kidney issues for some time now, along with thyroid problems.  And to make matters worse, she has been diagnosed with cancer.  She is so sick and weak right now, and it just breaks my heart to see her like this.  She has been my baby for 4 years (she was a rescue), and our vet believes she only has six months to live.  I'm not ready to lose her.

Sixlets;
Consider it done and you will soon see how many others will be there for you as well. I have only been here a short time. Helped my dog Peaches on her journey to the bridge last week. I have had many caring people help me with my difficult time and rest assured they will be there for you as well. This site as I have said many times before was God send to me. You know you are not alone during this trying time. God Bless you and your sweet Patches.

It's always incredibly difficult to have our furchildren make their transitions to the next world, and the anxiety when you know when that will be seems to make it that much worse.  My heart breaks for you!

No doubt, the Creator sent her to you because He knew where she'd find love and care; she's had 4 good years because of *you*, and so you are hers forever.

My beloved Merlin was diagnosed with CRF in January 2001, and I knew the end was coming, so I've been where you are, and I know the anxiety of the wait.  Take this time to be certain that you say everything to Patches that you want her to know - and be sure to tell her that in her new home, she will be completely healthy and utterly happy - and that you'll be joining her shortly.  It may not - probably won't - be a short time for you, stuck with all of us in Earthly time, but at the Bridge, there *is* no time, so it will be no more than the blink of an eye to Patches, and you'll be there!  She'll be met by friends, surrounded by love.  And she will take your love with her, a love that will last for all Eternity.

Please keep coming here and let us know what's happening.  And be assured that Patches will be in my prayers.

I just wanted to thank you all so much for the prayers and kind words.  After speaking with the vet's office and my husband after I posted, we have made the decision to let her go.  I have lost pets before, but this is the first time that I've had to do this.  I feel like I've let her down in some way-like there was something I could have done for her. 

 When we went to the shelter Easter weekend 2004, my husband almost stepped on a blanket in the middle of the floor.  Thankfully, before he put his foot down, he lifted the blanket, and there she was-Patches.  She instantly went to him, and eventually made her way over to me.  She immediately jumped in my lap, climbed on my shoulder, and buried her little nose in my hair.  It's almost like she adopted me. 

She has been my side day by day for the past four years, and now I have to get the courage to let her go...

My thoughts and prayers are with you and Patches! My baby Fifi had kidney problems and I know how hard that can be to deal with. Everyone is here to support you as you go through this difficult time. Keep us posted with how Patches is doing.

Dear sixlets,

My heart goes out to you, and I have you and your beloved little girl, Patches in my prayers.  I'm so sorry you have to go through this, very sorry that she is so ill.  Your love for her will guide you.

Today is the day we have to say goodbye to our baby, our sweet pea, our Patches.  I have the most tremendous amount of guilt and sadness, but I know we have to do what is best for her.  I now have to gather the strength to get through this day.  She has a 'friend' waiting for her-my parents Peek-a-poo, Peppy who crossed in October 2006.  She will be missed so much.

Our Sweet Pea has now crossed to the bridge.  While our decision was the hardest we ever had to make, we know it was best for her. 

After getting settled into our room at the office, we took Patches out of her carrier and instead of her normal routine of walking and rubbing everything, she laid down on my lap and just curled up.  She passed very peacefully while we petted her gently.  We were able to stay with her for a bit, and when we left, the sun was starting to set, and it was just a beautiful Baltimore evening.  My husband & I both commented at the same time that we could not describe the feeling we had, but each other knew.  It was like a huge calm had come over both of us-I think it was Patches's way of saying 'thank you' and that she was finally ok. 

She's not by herself, which makes me feel better.  She has so many old friends-Peppy (my parents Peek-a-poo), Gizmo (my beagle/doxie), Pookie (my very first cat), and many others.  She can watch over us along with her sister Penny and brother Shadow (he lives with my parents) and Sneakers (my parents-in-law cat). 

I miss her more than anything, and I can only hope and pray that the pain will get easier to bear.  My only wish is that she is at peace and she has comfort in knowing how much she is loved.

I am so sorry that you had to make that awful decision to PTS your little Patches.  My sincere condolences to both you and your husband.
It is so awful I know.  The first day I get through better as it all seems so unreal, as you say, almost peaceful.  Especially when they have been failing for a while, I didnt realise how much strain it is knowing that their time on earth is coming to an end, until they have finally left.  I am so sorry.  Thinking of you, Di xxx

 I love you and miss you wee Bas.  xxx
