She passed away on Friday around noon. at 16 1/2 half years her health began to take a turn for the worst a week before. I knew she would go soon. The past ten days where hard she went from becoming a very finicky eater to not eating at all two days before leaving me. I'm happy we shared a pizza on tuesday but by weds and thursday I was having to force feed her with a spoon. I felt guilty forcing food that she did not want. I canceled everything this week to be by her side. But on Friday I had to make a trip to the office. I went early as she was sleeping so I could come back as soon as possible. I was out for three hours. I rushed right back, as I entered my home it seems she had expired minutes before. both my other dogs where near her. she died in the same position as I had left her. Her body was warm, I picked her up and she spilled the last remains in her bladder. I know she was 16 and she had to move on, she had become ill at the end and it was not fair that she should suffer. I prayed the last night and gave her permission to leave, we slept together the whole night , I could hear her breathing go from heavy to faint and then relaxed. I know all of this but I still feel pain. She was the offspring of my previous dogs Sophia and Fonfon.I helped her be born,.. she was the best dog ever with such a wonderful disposition she inherited all the good traits from her parents. Never gave me any trouble, my kitchen companion when I cooked, she cleaned every plate , floor and anything else that fell on the ground, always by my side she gave the sweetest kisses ever. I know she's running with her best friend pipoca which I lost five years ago and with her mom and dad and little sis, they are all running healthy in a heavenly pasture happy and full of energy, but right now I just feel sad. I miss her, I miss my entire cocker clan. she was the last of that clan, now they are all gone.  I love you Billie Noir Blue !!!

Dear Billie's Mom,

I'm so sorry to her about your loss.  What a lucky girl Billie was to have lived her entire life with you.  I was so touched by your account of caring for her and giving her permission to go just the night before.  She knew what was in your heart.  I believe, deep within, that she chose to leave right before you returned, knowing that if she were to wait until you were back, she might not have the strength to go on her own.  Your other angel dogs were there to escort her on that final journey, and they will help her to get acquainted with her new realm now.  Soon, she will visit you or send you  sign to let you know that her health and youth have been restored forever.

You, your surviving dogs, and your beautiful angel Billie Blu are in my thoughts and prayers.

My heart is battered and bruised, but I will not let it break. It holds such precious cargo, I must protect it now. (Susie Squillions)

In one of the stars, I shall be living.
In one of them, I shall be laughing.
And so it will be as if all the stars were laughing when you look at the sky at night.
