My Tillie

Tillie - there are no words, poems, that can express my thoughts at this moment, that we as a family have aching hearts.

Our Tillie, our Bichon, just passed away March 9. 2010. She was going to be 15 years old in August. She was the best life-long companion.

Her health was failing, cataracts, loss of hearing, atrophied back legs, and she was recently diagnosed with diabetes. We had to make the decision on what to do and the quality of life she would be having.

In her eyes, I saw a very tired Tillie, which broke my heart, but I knew what we needed to do. My husband and I stayed with her and I laid on her until she passed away.

This was probably the hardest thing I have ever had to do, but I know she is at peace, and will be waiting for me at the end.

Tillie you are my love, and that love will stay forever in my heart. Rest in peace, my lovely Tillie.

Bless you for staying with your Tillie until the end. That was such an unselfish act. I don't know if I could be brave enough to do that.

My sympathies for your huge loss. I know how deeply it hurts. I lost my little doxie on Dec 13 2008. He died in my arms.

What comfort I can bring to you is to know that all our pets cross the rainbow bridge. They will be there to greet us when it is our time. You will get all those great sweet kisses you have missed.

I know god loves our pets too or why else would we fall in love with them like we do. It's such a wholesome sweet unselfish love they give us.

A fellow pet lover, Linda
