Wednesday when I picked Abi up, the vet and I talked. He told me that the most humane thing for her would be for him to come to my apartment and give Abi a shot. We didn’t want her to suffer.
Having her at home, she wouldn’t be getting the IV fluids and vitamins. He told me there was nothing else we could do for her.
So we decided that he would come over yesterday so I could keep her at home with me.
Just before noon he called and said he was on his way with one of the girls from their office to assist.
Abi had not left my bed all morning. I moved her to the couch to their soft dog bed. Charlie and I were next to her when he gave her the shot.
I tried to be as calm as I could for Abi’s sake. I just kept talking to her and telling her that I loved her.
Watching the light leave my baby’s eyes was one of the hardest things I’ve ever experienced.
They took Abi to be cremated. At least I will have her ashes.
Charlie and I are comforting one another as best we can.
I thank all of you so much for your kind words, comments and emails. It means a lot to me.
