Ben and Soots
March 11th 2014 is a day I won't forget in a very long time. It's the day I had to put to sleep my 2 loyal and loving dogs, Ben and Sooty. They just turned 12.
Ben's hip dysplasia just got worse, and he was dragging his hind legs. I could see he was now struggling. His sister Sooty was unwell during the weekend. She had a fluid buildup in her belly and couldn't walk.
The vet said the kindest thing I could do was have them put to sleep, so today was the dreaded day. I sat with them both, holding them close, while the vet did the injection and was all over in seconds.
They were very loyal and much loved. I miss them both so much. It was the worst day of my life today. The house feels empty without them here. I keep expecting them to come walking in to see. me I can still see their faces looking at me before they went to sleep.
I kissed them both and told them I loved them and I was so sorry to be doing this. My heart is broken. I hope they forgive me.
Rest in peace, my babies, until we meet again at the rainbow bridge. Forever in my heart, always and forever.
Love always, Mum xxxxx
