Have you got a friend who will understand who can come with you and then spend some time with you afterwards?  :hearts: xx
Even the darkest night will end and the sun will rise.

No but I prefer to go on my own, thought Iíve had offers to go with me from a close friend and her husband, and my friend Alice is going to phone me later , my neighbour offered to accompany me but I donít know her that well though it was a kind gesture. I canít explain it but itís something I want to do on my own. Weíre going there for 4 now and the reception lady was so kind on the phone. Sheís moved the appointment as it means we wonít be sitting waiting too long . She spent ages talking to me on the phone, she was very kind and reassuring, I can pick his ashes up next Tuesday, they will organise the individual cremation and box etc. Iím going to send the lady at Felt finesse some ashes and a picture so she can make the heart and sculpture and Iím going to ask for a lock of his hair

Strangely enough I feel quite calm at the moment, I think Iíve reconciled myself to the decision, I canít vouch for the state Iíll be in later but I know itís the right decision and it would be unfair to keep him in the state hes in. Heíll be at peace.

 :hug: i hope he continues to improve - In his last year or so mine didnt want to go out for walks but i am fortunate to have a garden so he would quite hapilly amble round there at his own pace.Parting with them is really hard i still miss him two years on,he was my reason to get up after my husband died -i havnt got another i dont think i will now - but i have other peoples dogs when theyre on holiday -so not entirely pooch free.

Came back from the vets after having Harry put to sleep, one of the hardest things Iíve ever had to do, will miss him so much but heís at peace now and I have lots of happy memories to look back on and treasure, Iím picking up his ashes next Tuesday

Sorry to hear about Harry but you have done the right thing for both of you as you were getting upset seeing him poorly, I am totally useless at vets on these occasions and Ruth was always the brave one to actually be there in the end, our vet used to let people either pay early or later so they could go home quicker. take care of yourself and always remember he will be with you always. I have the ashes for 3 dogs and a cat plus Ruth and her mum and sister all in a spare bedroom as it gives me somewhere to place flowers.....I know it sounds daft but i chat to them all while me and Rory are sorting the washing out etc .....some people think I'm a bit weird having them all here but they are here where they belong.

Thanks for the kind comments, no I donít think thatís weird at all, ( talking to them etc and keeping them). Iíve opted for Harry to have an individual cremation and Iíve chosen a sweet little urn, pewter with silver coloured paw print 🐾, heís being collected from the vets today ( Tuesday and theyíre going to phone me next Tuesday to let me know when I can pick up his ashes to bring them home) Iíve also got his collar and some hair from his ears, front paw and his back to put with the ashes xxx
It was very quick the way he went and the vet was so kind, I couldnít have asked for a more peaceful passing for him. Iíll miss him but I know I did the kindest thing for him xxx. They let me pay for the euthanasia and the cremation/ urn while I was in the room with him and then let me out via the back entrance so I wouldnít have to go back through the shop, they were so kind xx

Thatís ok karena, Iíve done similar myself, he did seem to pick up a little but in the past week or so his back legs were bad and he was hardly eating or drinking much, especially in the past couple of days. Itís horrible without him but I somehow have to get myself together and try to move forward. He was suffering, and it was heartbreaking to see him in that state.

I donít know if I can bear coming home to an empty house 😢😢😢 I know I said I wouldnít get another dog, ever but I hate the emptiness, I know itís too soon yet but I can see myself with another dog before too long
