Rest easy now, Delaney

With a heavy heart I write to tell you that we had to let Delaney go today.

This comes after several months of fighting a bad cough, only to find out in January after meds, hospitalization, and a series of x-rays, that she had a mass/tumor in her lung area. Although her vet thought she had much longer before she got this bad -her breathing got worse and she was swelling so badly. She was at the vet's overnight, just this past Wednesday. They hoped that giving her meds via IV would help reduce the swelling - it didn't really help.

We brought her home yesterday, but she felt so bad - she was having such a hard time breathing and could barely walk. She also refused food or treats.

We felt that when she looked at us, it was as if she was telling us that she was ready to go. So we said goodbye.

Rest easy now, Delaney. We will miss you so much.

Here's a couple of photos of Delaney. She would have been 12 in April.

:cry::cry::cry: I am so so sorry to read this. It definitely sounds like you all fought until there was nothing left to fight for.

What a sweet soft face Delaney has...:cloud9:

She is surely at the Bridge now running young whole and healthy again thanking your for taking away her pain and discomfort.

I am heartbroken for you and with you...stay strong :grouphug:

ok 14+ make me cry again...it has not been long since we told Rudy goodbye, just a bit over 3 months. We told Delaney - almost last words to her - go find Rudy and run with him.

Now Simon misses her so much, has missed her since she started getting sick. We'll get him a buddy before too much time passes or he will drive us and the cats crazy. He loved Delaney.

:grouphug: I'm sorry my friend. I didn't mean to make you cry. Just thought of them together.... seems right. I know it wasn't long ago you said goodbye to Rudy. It's so hard. :grouphug:

no worries, been crying off and on - it is right for her to run with Rudy, I do worry about Simon, left behind. I think he is worried we'll take him to the vet and not return with him.....but he knew this morning that Laney was not well.

ugh - so hard to love these guys and have to let them go - even when it is time.

Delaney's vet cried with us today, he loved her so much.
