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.
