Ah, Irish - you and Jake are doubly blessed to be able to spend this time together. I remember this part from when my Gonzo was losing his fight with HIV. He kept me from having to make a final decision by drifting away in his sleep early on Easter morning - before he was in any pain. I would never, ever have let him go on past the time when life was a burden to him, but I am forever grateful to him for sparing me that decision. I only hope that you and Jake can part ways in this life as gently as Gonzo and I did. Maybe Gonzo will greet Jake on the other side of the Bridge . . .

Thank you Renee and may Gonzo be at peace at the bridge. I had a good talk with Jake this morning. I thanked her for helping me raise my kids and I told her it was okay for her to go, that though I will miss her, my memories of her will keep me warm. I just know that she is worried about me, and I wanted her to know it was okay for her to let go. I am so grateful to have this time with her, she slept with me last night and I kept waking up feeling her warm little body snuggled up to me. I will not let her suffer of course, and if a trip back to the vet is warranted, I will be there to hold her as she passes over to the bridge. I would have it no other way. I'm glad your Gonzo got to drift away in his sleep, that makes it so much easier for us left behind. My Jake is leaving my life at the same time that my grand daughter came into it. Isn't that the way life is.

It is Sunday morning and Jake grows weaker by the minute, she is no longer eating. I was just laying on the couch with her, I had my hand laying right by her, I was thinking of how much I was going to miss her when I felt her paw. She had layed it ever so gently on top of my hand.
