View Full Version : Cassie given her wings

30th January 2009, 09:18 PM
Our darling little cassie was PTS this afternoon, she was having problems wth her breathing and as we thought the vet could do no more.
She was wonderful companion and at 15 was a grand old lady.
Life in our household will never be the same.

oh no Nanette, so so sorry to hear this sad news :(

I know your heart will be breaking right now, sending you our love and special thoughts at this time.

15 years is an amazing age - a tribute to your wonderful care and love; but it makes it even harder to lose your special companion when they've been with you that long.

Life won't ever be the same - but as the pain eases slightly, you start to remember the many happy times you shared together, and delight in the joy that Cassie brought to your life. It takes a while, but it's all part of the healing and grieving process.

Take care of yourself xx

Is that Cassie in your avatar photo? I've always meant to comment to you in a post about how gorgeous whoever that is in your picture! She looks a lot like my Daisy with the long, flowing feathers and long ears.

I'm so sorry to hear about Cassie. I hope that Daisy makes it to 15 (or more, of course). I know how you must miss her already. Blessings to all of you. We should all have our Cavaliers live to be grand old ladies like that!

What a wonderful age to get to, and what a good life she must have had with you :). To be remembered with love.

31st January 2009, 06:08 PM
First of all thankyou so so much for all the love. care, hugs and flowers that you all have shown, what wonderful people you all are.
Cassie was our little darling, gentle, loving and without a doubt a very special Cavalier.
Yes she did live to a grand age but I want those people who seem to delight in telling us all about the golden oldies and how there are many long lived cavaliers that she still died of MVD which she had had since she was 8. We all know they have do die of something and I would not change a thing about her life with us but watching them struggle to breath, coughing and not able to walk from one room to another in their final days is not pleasant as I am sure many will know if they like me have lost several of these special little dogs to this disease. Will they ever learn?

Thankyou again
Love Nanette xxxxxxxx

Nanette I have to admit that I didn't give this a thought when I posted, though I should have. I am sorry that Cassie wasn't well for so long.

Being a 'golden oldie' isn't so great if you are in discomfort, and it must be difficult to watch.

I still think she was lucky to be with you though.

31st January 2009, 08:29 PM
So,so sorry.I know how you must feel.

31st January 2009, 08:58 PM
Nanette, so sorry for the loss of your darling Cassie. She is at peace with our angels at the bridge now...

31st January 2009, 10:05 PM
So sorry Nanette,

I am sure you will feel her absence and miss her terribly, having enjoyed her company for so many years.
Hugs to you in your time of grief.

1st February 2009, 04:51 PM
Nanette, my thoughts and prayers are with you. Many dogs unfortunately do not get to have loving, caring people in their lives like Cassie did. She was blessed.
