Hi Ann, somehow your story at least the end parrells our loss of Morgan just a few weeks ago. My beloved girl, spared us having to make the difficult decision of putting her down and passed quietly on her own in the night, she waited until after my birthday. Tumor that had opened, turned into surgery that was no big deal, it peeled right off but then her spleen had twisted and then she was ok and then not ok and then ok...and then she passed what a rollercoaster! She was 13, and up until this past few months where she lost a step here and there she was very healthy so it was a shock. I can completely understand where you are coming from reading your story brought it all back to me. Baron was loved no doubt, what a beautiful life you gave him, Morgan is there with him now at rainbow bridge, she was chow sheppard a very loyal smart girl. I felt better to get her ashes back home. Please know Baron is healthy again and rolling in the grass....waiting for you, as the soul remembers.
