Our Sweet Lily
01/26/2002 - 06/07/2012
With a little help and her head cradled in Momma's lap Lily crossed over the Rainbow Bridge this morning. Free of pain and sporting four fully functional legs she met up with her buddy, Edgrrr, who introduced her to her new friends Wysti, Echo, Emily and Tyson. Run free my sweet baby............
Last Thursday at the holistic vet was so promising we didn't expect the turn she took on Monday night, heavy panting, diarrhea, lack of appetite and restlessness. The Husband took her to her regular vet Tuesday. She had picked up a gastrointestinal bug, apparently it was going around. Though she fought off the infection in her stump and the infection in her bladder this one proved to be too much for her. Or perhaps she was just tired of it all, perhaps it was just her time.
I can't tell you how much we miss her, but I'm sure all of you know, probably having been in our shoes once or twice if you own a pet. It hurts, you second guess all the decisions you have made along the road that lead to this. But it changes nothing she is gone, as we knew someday she would be and it hurts. Deeply.
This is the first time in almost 30 years that we have not had a dog. And it hurts. Deeply.
