My Sweet Babygirl Godiva

Me and my angel

Me and my angel

We saved Godiva from living in a crate for the rest of her life because she was from a poodle breeder who could only show the perfect dogs.

Godiva had dwarfism (same as humans, just puppy form) and she had a hard time running around and with lots of activity. She used to scream in agony after she had done a lot of exercise. She had some sort of disease that forced us to give her steroids so that she'd gain a little weight.

Her life prognosis was about only 2 years but she is now 7 years old and just beginning to deteriorate. We took her to the vet because she can't use her back left leg at allllllll. We think we'll need to put her down.

I'm not sure what I'm going to do without my sweet angel sleeping next to me every night. I'm torn apart and can't believe it.

Hard to choose
by: Anonymous

I can understand the love you have for her and I would not want to be put into a position to choose her fate. With that said, you will have the time to make the decision and understand why it had to be the way it had to be.

Pain is pain and no one wants to live with it all the time. Knowing Godiva is no longer in pain might comfort you through the process. In any case, it hurts and you are not alone.

My, and many others', prayers will be with you.

I am so sorry for the heart-rending decision you must make. I had to make it too. I lost my Carley back in May. It was a very tough decision, but it was the last loving thing I could do for my baby.

I still cry about her every day, but I know she is OK in heaven with her brother and the previous pets I have owned. I favored her, and it was really tough to let go, but at the same time I didn't want her to suffer. May God bless you.
