Sad heart

It is with a very sad heart that l have to tell you that we had Digger put to sleep this morning, he was having difficulty breathing and was drinking a lot of water which my DIL said it meant his kidneys where failing and if we left him any longer then other organs would start to fail l have always said that l would not let him suffer so we took the final decission this morning and he went very peacfully with me holding him. I would like to say a big thank you for all your concern and kind messages regarding Digger it has meant a lot to me.When l feel ready l will show you some holiday pics , so untill then take care my dear freinds and have a good weekend big hugs Pat

Poor Digger and poor you Pat ... little comfort I know but you made the right decision .... not a nice one but the best for him. I had to do the same thing many years ago and it broke my heart at the time but I knew Jasper just couldn't carry on. Try to have a good weekend. x

Sending you a hug Pat - I thinks its a brave thing to do, but a blessing to be able to ease his distress.

So sorry to hear about Digger, at least he's not suffering now, bless him.
I had to have my 17 yr old Bunty put down a few years ago, and I know how it feels.
Big hugs to you, Pat xxxxxx

Hi Pat!

I am very sorry to hear about your doggy. I haven't been "out and about" in the blogging world so I hadn't read about him until now.

You seem to have such a lovely family; I am sure they are a very real comfort to you during this time.
