Izzy died at 10.30 tonight. He went out for a wee and didn't come back. oddly, it was Joly, whom he never really got on with, who stayed with him.

I'm so relieved because I've been dreading this time and having to make a decision.

Barbara - I am sorry for your loss of Izzy. What a sad time for you. I am glad that you are relieved in the manner of his passing. Know that I am praying for you.

I'm so sorry to hear about Izzy. I knew that he had advanced MVD and you were so helpful to me when I posted about the issues Gizmo was having at the end of his life. The manner of his passing seemed gentle as you described it, accompanied by one of his "pack." Will be thinking of you over the coming days and weeks. May you find joy in the life that he was able to have with your good care. His wise eyes and handsome face in his photo are truly memorable.

I'm so sorry Barbara
He is beautiful and you loved him, that's what matters. I suspect Joly knew more than he let on. You are in my thoughts Barbara. Sleep well Izzy, you made so many smiles along the way.

Run free at the Bridge darling Izzy, free from pain and suffering now, you've got your angel wings to fly with *ng*l

{{{{{{{{Barbara}}}}}}}} I'm so sorry for you, at least he went in his own home with his family around him, knowing he was so loved by you all xxxxx

Oh Barbara - love and hugs coming to you. It's so nice that he was able to go so quickly and be accompanied by Joly. He was such a beautiful boy (I think of the picture of him on the stairs with his toy in his mouth). It was sweet of him to take the decision out of your hands....such a difficult decision to have to make.

Run free Izzy love...no more pain only joy!!

Run free Izzy and I am sure my lot would love to play with you too

oh Barbara I'm so sorry to hear about precious Izzy...bless him though that he saved you from making that horrid decision.

Thinking of you all - hugs for the boys, they will be missing their companion.

Your Izzy was so handsome with such wonderful eyes. Am glad that his passing was peaceful. Cherish your memories and give extra hugs to those who are still with you, especially Joly for being so good at the end. :hug:

So sorry for your loss, Barbara -- he was such a lovely dog. Though your heart must ache, I think you were blessed with such a gentle and peaceful going -- it was clearly a day like any happy day in Izzy's life, and just part of his normal routine, and he had companionship there too. :flwr:

18th March 2007, 04:45 PM
I am so sorry for your loss Barbara - least you have the happy memories of Izzy and he is running free at the bridge with no pain now..... hugs and kisses from my guys for you...

Hugs for you and your family Barbara on the loss of your sweet Izzy. He was surrounded with his loving family all his days and his mate stayed on with him at the end. A blessing as it must have been quick. I hope you find peace in that.

As others have said, it's good that he was at home and with a friend.

Barbara, I'm very sorry for your loss. When I read your post about receiving the sign from Izzy, I had no idea his passing was this recent. Let there be no doubt in your mind your beloved Izzy is happy at the rainbow bridge and sent you a sign. Izzy what a good, kind boy you are, laying your head to rest in the open sky. Joly thank you for watching over Izzy at the end. God bless you all.

18th March 2007, 10:39 PM
I am so very sorry to hear of Izzy's passing. I definitely think the yellow balloon was a sign from him that he is at the bridge having a wonderful time. He is saying " I'm o.k. Mom, don't worry about me and I'll see you again one day" *ng*l .

19th March 2007, 12:08 AM
Oh how I hate seeing new posts in this section of the forum... :(

Barbara, so glad that Izzy was lucky enough to have a mom like you. Take care :hug: :hug: :hug:

So so sorry to hear of Izzy's passing. I lost my first cavalier to MVD, so understand what you are all going through. Just remember he will be at the bridge with all our dear ones, with their waggly tails and big eyes just waiting.

20th March 2007, 11:54 AM

I'm so sorry Barbara. You are in my thoughts.... I wish I were better with words. Breaks my heart when one of the precious pups here passes on. Each and every one is a special gift.... Peace to you and your family.

Dear Barbara, I am so sorry to read (with big fat tears in my eyes) of your loss. Your photo of Izzy shows a beautiful boy. He looks the picture of love. Love just beams from that sweet face. How lovely that you didn't have to make that awful decision for him. Take care. It takes time....

Barbara, I am so sad to read of Izzy's sudden journey to Rainbow Bridge.

I've been away from the 'net, so only just read your post.

Izzy did you the ultimate favour by taking the most difficult decision out of your hands .... this is exactly what my precious Declan did at the end and I'm forever grateful for that.

(((( hugs )))) and I pray that your other furry friends are providing solace for you all.

25th March 2007, 12:09 AM
Barbara, I am sad for your loss. It sounds like Izzy went well. :flwr:

12th April 2007, 08:34 PM
Oh no, Barbara, I am so sorry for your loss. I don't look at this part of the forum very often. I did a search for you today to tell you how much Izzy's picture in the calendar makes me smile. She is a beautiful girl.

I know you will see her again one day....:flwr:

Ashley - I was just thinking the exact same thing today! I have my calendar on the side of my fridge and see the picture many many times a day. It never fails that I see that sweet Izzy face and I walk away with a big grin on my face. What a beautiful girl!
