View Full Version : R.I.P Gizmo

15-Oct-10, 13:37
15 years of being part of our family but we had to let the little man go this morning. :(
The dog we couldn't afford as a puppy so swapped a car for him.

Collapsed trachea and congestive heart failure were just getting too much for a little Yorkie to cope with and we weren't prepared to watch him go through anymore.
Have to admit it was the hardest thing to do especially for my daughter, but after 15 years of loyalty it was the kindest thing we could finally do for him.

Run free Gizmo at Rainbow Bridge.

Oh I am so very, very sorry Porshiepoo.:~(

You have 15 wonderful years of memories to comfort you once the awful pain of losing your lovely Gizmo eases a bit.

He will definitely be waiting for you at Rainbow Bridge and be so thankful to you for ending his suffering.

Thinking of you. xx

Thanks for all of your kind comments.

Having a pet PTS never gets easier but it's the last kindness we can offer them.
Must admit that I feel like a hard nosed bitch though cos I never cry at these times (I never cry full stop. At all. Ever)
I shake and dread it but if I know it's for the right reasons then I am surprisingly matter of fact about it.
I am sad and upset that we've lost a fabulous pet that has never given us a days worry over 15 years but I'm happy for Gizmo because he's no longer in any pain.
He's running free now with all our other loved and lost pets.

So sorry for your loss. Its always hard to loose a much loved pet especially one thats been a part of the family for so long.

If it should be that I grow frail and weak
And pain should keep me from my sleep,
Then will you do what must be done,
For this -- the last battle -- can't be won.
You will be sad I understand,
But don't let grief then stay your hand,
For on this day, more than the rest,
Your love and friendship must stand the test.
We have had so many happy years,
You wouldn't want me to suffer so.
When the time comes, please, let me go.
Take me to where to my needs they'll tend,
Only, stay with me till the end
And hold me firm and speak to me
Until my eyes no longer see.
I know in time you will agree
It is a kindness you do to me.
Although my tail its last has waved,
From pain and suffering I have been saved.
Don't grieve that it must be you
Who has to decide this thing to do;
We've been so close -- we two -- these years,
Don't let your heart hold any tears.
