View Full Version : Cailean Is Getting His Wings Today

15th December 2008, 09:23 AM
Our beloved Cailean is losing his fight with MVD.

He's on my lap as I type, he's so weak and breathing is such hard work. Please think of him at 10.00 am when he passes over to rainbow bridge.

I'm in bits as you can imagine.

Thinking of you both and sending you a big hug. Run free & strong little Cailean.

oh Fran I'm so so sorry :(:(

He will have some wonderful companions waiting to meet him - my Rupert will be there to greet him, and I knowhis Father Declan will be too.

I know your heart will be breaking right now - Cailean is very very special, he has that same wonderful character, I was honoured to have met him, and seen him bounce about despite being so ill.

Very big hugs to you - you know we understand. They are all special but some are just EXTRA special and it's hard to face life without them :'(

Take care and give all the others a cuddle - also take comfort that Cailean had a wonderful life with you, he was always loved and spoilt xx

Prayers going up for you and your family at this difficult time. :( Just hang on to the joy and memories to get you through. I know exactly what you are going through right now, as do all of us who have ever been owned and loved by any precious dog in the past.

Oh Fran, a very, very big hug. He'd done so well for so much longer than you had at first feared, which has been a blessing -- I am glad you had that extra time with him as I know he has worried you a few times before. It is very hard to take this final journey with him. Thinking of you. :flwr:

I'm sorry to hear about Cailean, he is free from pain now and that was the best gift you could have given him. I'm so sorry for your loss. :hug:

17th December 2008, 02:03 AM
I am soooo sorry. I am facing the same decision with my almost 14 year old schanuzer. I love her dearly and she has been the sweetest, smartest dog we have ever had, but she is now blind, has cushings disease, tumors, stomach problems, etc. Her quality of life has really deteriorated. I am broken-hearted....it is just never easy. My heart goes out to you. Judy

17th December 2008, 11:36 PM
Fran, I've just seen this. I'm so sorry - but glad that you were able to eke out so much extra time with him.

18th December 2008, 10:06 AM
I am so sorry for your pain. Letting go is always the hardest thing to do. But it is the kindest. Sending a lot of :hug:
