kh, sora, take flight

My Molly is gone.

The blood work was done this morning, and she had kidney failure. She could have been kept alive for a while longer, but it would have involved so much misery for her and for me that I chose not to do it, and my vet said that was the right choice for Molly. She went very quickly and quietly - she was gone before all the injection was even in her vein - so she was tired, I guess.

This all happened so fast. Thursday she was normal. But that's kidneys for you, and since I work for (human) kidney doctors, I know that.

God, I am going to miss my girl. Being an indoor dog, with such a sweet personality, she was around me all the time I was home - even now, sitting at the computer, I miss her laying at my feet as she usually did.

Anyway, I am not dealing with this very well, so if I drop out of sight for a few days, that's why. I can't even take this in. I keep thinking I see her, and I can't talk to anyone without starting to sob.

Goodbye, sweet Molly. You're in a better place now, one without fleas, where treats are hidden in every corner for you to snuffle out.

*HUGSHUGSHUGS* I can't think of anything reassuring to say when it's still less than a year from having to put down a cat here, but all you can do is cuddle whatever animals are still around, and they make things easier.
I wish that I could find the words to make you feel better, Kat, but I know that there is little I can do to ease your pain. I am so sorry for your loss and I'm thinking of you.
I'm so sorry, Kat. Take all the time you need, people will understand. *hugs*
I'm really really sorry, Kat. I think most dogs go to heaven, if it's any consolation.

You take care, alright?
So, so sorry for your loss, Kat. :( This happens to you entirely too much! But all of your animal friends have had better lives because you belonged to them. Molly is no different. *hugs!* :( :(
*HUG* I'm so sorry, Kat. She's okay now, but I know that doesn't make you miss her any less. I hope you feel better soon.
*HUGSHUGSHUGS* Kat. I'm so sorry. As yet another person who has lost a pet to kidney failure, I know how you feel. It's so sudden. People are right about the other animals making it a little bit easier though...

You know where to find me if you need anything.
Oh, Lord, Kat... Cats, horses ... and now your dog. What a rough year....

Take however long you need. You know we're not going anywhere, and we'll be here when you get back -- or whenever you need us....

*hugs -- huge hugs*
Aww I so sorry Kat. *Hugs*
I just saw this, as I haven't been keeping up with reading my f'list very well this week. God, Kat, I'm so sorry to hear this. I remember when you got Molly; I hope it comforts you a little to know that you gave her a good life, a much better one than she'd had before. *many hugs and much love*
Oh, no. DragonGirl, I am so sorry. I'm coming in on this late (you can check my own LJ for WHY)...and am so so so sorry. What a devastating blow. The kidneys are cruel.

She is at peace and in no pain. And you gave her the most wonderful life any pup could hope to have. No regrets.

love and hugs,
HareBall
