Dixie's Mom, I'm so sorry for your loss.  You did the right thing and ended her suffering.  Dixie definitely forgives you.  You saved her and mended her and gave her a loving, caring home and in the end her life ended peacefully.  She knows that and she is still with you in spirit.  You may not feel her now but when your grief is not so intense she will give you a sign.  You were her angel here on earth and now she is your Dixie Angel watching you from above and around you.  Hugs and blessings to you.

May I Go Now?
by Susan A. Jackson

 

May I go now?
Do you think the time is right?
May I say good-bye to pain-filled days
and endless lonely nights?

I've lived my life and done my best,
an example tried to be.
So can I take that step beyond
and set my spirit free?

I didn't want to go at first,
I fought with all my might.
But something seems to draw me now
to a warm and loving light.

I want to go. I really do.
It's difficult to stay.
But I will try as best I can
to live just one more day,

To give you time to care for me
and share your love and fears.
I know you're sad and so afraid,
because I see your tears.

I'll not be far, I promise that,
and hope you'll always know
that my spirit will be close to you,
wherever you may go.

Thank you so for loving me.
You know I love you too.
That's why it's hard to say good-bye
and end this life with you.

So hold me now, just one more time
and let me hear you say,
because you care so much for me,
you'll let me go today.

Today is day three, I am told by family.  I could not even remember what day it is.  I thank you all for your sympathy.  You are keeping me on my feet right now.  I don't even know what to say.  Today, I am angry.  I only have to look out my door to see other furbabies that would likely be happier at the Rainbows Bridge than where they are now.  Yet, my baby fought so hard to stay and she's gone.  I see far too many that someone just feeds occasionally, never snuggling them close and whispering, "I love you's."  Yet, my arms are empty.  I'm just so dang mad.  I don't want to forget my baby.  I want to close my eyes and be able to feel her soft coat.  I want to smell her scent that was all her own.  I want to feel that tiny tongue licking my arm and telling me she loves me, too.  I am so afraid to lose those things and I am so mad.  Please pray for me.

Dear Sharon,

You will never lose any of those things.  I can still remember all the purrs and soft touches, the sandpaper kisses and the meows that I have known over the years.  They live within our hearts forever, never more than a whisper away from us.

I understand your anger, but I hope Dixie will send you signs to let you know she is right there with you always.  Maybe a dream, a scent you'll catch on the air, or butterfly, bird, or rabbit that lingers close to you longer than usual.  When something like that happens, the anger begins to subside, and the feelings of love and gratitude are rekindled.

You're so right about the ones that don't know what it means to be loved and appreciated.  How I wish I could hold them all and tell them how precious they are.  Every animal deserves to know love.

Keep the faith, and know that we are all here for you as you find your footing on this sad journey.

I am so very sorry to hear about your loss.  It is so very hard to let go.  It's been three months since I had to say goodbye to my Misty, almost 18 years old, but she had been throwing up her food and blood for a couple of weeks.  I thought it was time, but she didn't want to go.  I am still blaming myself for pulling the plug, what I would give to have just two more hours

I'm getting a bit stronger.  A couple of days ago, my husband and I shared a memory and actually laughed!
She would go outside to potty.  If it was a sunny day, she would just sit down in the yard.  I would say, "Dixie, come here."  She would ignore me and turn her head the other way so she didn't have to look at me.  Well, I would head after her.  She would let me get about two feet from her then she'd get up and move just out of my reach and sit back down.  She'd glance over her shoulder and watch me.  Then when I'd get close, she'd move a little further and sit down.  Sometimes we'd cross our yard and the neighbor's, too!  My husband's favorite time was when it had been snowing then the sun came out.  I was wearing my nightgown and boots.  It was like she was laughing at me. 
Gosh, I miss her so much.

She certainly had her own little personality, didn't she?  And it is so funny when they do something like that because they KNOW exactly what they are doing!  They are so cute, funny, & precious.  I'm so glad you were able to laugh at a funny memory.  For a while, I know, you don't feel like you'll ever smile again.  At some point, the smiles outweigh the tears even though we don't ever stop missing them, I don't think.  My thoughts are with you as your heart continues to heal.

I have felt the same way. I had to make the hardest decision of my life on July 29, 2010 when I had to put my beloved Jewel down. She is at peace I know, but I couldn't hold her or look at her the last few moments of her life, it would to hard on me if she had lost everything. I just hope that she knew that I was there and that I wanted to be with her but it was just so hard. I hope that she knows that I love her and that she can forgive me for not being there for at the very end like she was there for me. My mother held her the entire time.
