goodbye



I've tried a few times to write something worthy of Tubbs and the 13 years we've spent together, but I can't seem to get it together long enough to do it. Tomorrow morning I will drive him for his final vet appointment. My emotions are swimming in my body and I'm trying my best to stay in the now. He is here now. He is sleeping just ten feet away. I'm trying not to think about tomorrow. Because after tomorrow the world will be a totally different place.

I'm so sorry! We know how much you guys love him! He knows how much you love him too! It will be a hard ride to the vet's to take. He will really always be with you in your heart and in your wonderful memories! Give him a hug for me! Love you!

I'm facing the same decision with Zoe (16 yrs old now). The worst thing about owning a dog is that they live such wonderful, loving, short lives. I'll be thinking of you guys today.

I'll be keeping Tubbs in my thoughts today, wishing him a peaceful passing back to the joys of puppyhood. Have J give you a big fat hug for me! xoxoxoxo

thanks everyone. It was hard, but it was time.

Wow, Jason. Zoe is 16!? It's so tough to watch them get old. Hope the boys are keeping her young... though I think it was the kind of opposite for Tubbs :)

Ha-Ha, she went deaf a couple of years ago... which was probably a blessing. She doesn't run anymore, but if they boys are laying down she gets next to them for some pets.

If you don't mind, & when your ready, shoot me an e-mail about how you went through your decision. I'm struggling to try to decide how i'll know when "its time".
