Run free, Eddie

Postby emmas_mom » Fri Apr 10, 2015 9:15 pm

As I said in another thread a few days ago, I made the difficult decision to have Eddie euthanized on Monday after it became clear his quality of life was severely compromised by seizures, an adverse reaction to seizure meds, and a heart condition. It has taken me a while to pull myself together enough to write my tribute to him - his death came only four days after Shiloh passed away. Here is the link to the post I put on my blog today, celebrating Eddie's life: http://mylifewiththecritters.blogspot.c ... ridge.html

Hugs to you, Jean. I can only imagine how you feel. Both Eddie and Shiloh had good, safe, and loving care with you in their last years.

What a wonderful tribute to Eddie! He may not have been the easiest dog to love, but you gave him an amazing life, Jean. I'm so sorry for how much loss you're dealing with right now.

I'm terribly sorry, Jean. I can't even imagine.
My thoughts are with you.

Dear Eddie: You've undoubtedly found a whole pack of ODO dogs to welcome you.

Thanks - my friends have returned home and the house is so quiet and empty. Mitzi is more like a cat - doesn't care if you are nearby or not (mostly sleeps in a room in the back of the house) as long as she gets one little walk a day and her dinner. I feel like I'm rattling around with nothing to do - went over to the SPCA this morning for a doggy fix. They talked to me about a 15 year old lab they have in foster care and may need a home for, but it's much too soon. I'll give myself a couple of months before I start looking. There are things I'm looking forward to do that I couldn't do with three old dogs - spend some time exploring, visiting etc. It's just hard to make the adjustment from houseful of needy dogs to house-almost-empty. :(

I'm sorry, Jean, that has to be hard. Your tributes to each of the dogs were beautiful. :( I know how much quieter my house is just missing one and even with the others right with me at my every move. :(

I'm so sorry. That would be such a big adjustment. Too big an adjustment all at once. :(

So sorry, Jean, you had to part from this happy, lovely boy so soon after sweet Shiloh. Hope you are having lovely dreams, Eddie.
