    Hi. We've decided to let him go

    It has been a tough decision, but he has so many things wrong with him and the vet was pretty adamant that he was in pain. The swelling in his leg has not gone down, and that's apparently being caused by his tumour blocking the blood flow. He also has a very sore bum and has had loose stools for about 3 weeks - again probably due to the tumour. Last week was pretty bad - he would just stand staring into space, probably because he couldn't get comfy. It's been tricky because this week he has seemed better. Last week he wouldn't go for walks, but this week he been enjoying a little stroll. But... we've decided the facts are there - he has a tumour in his abdomen that the vet is convinced is causing him a lot of pain, he has a swelled leg which must also be uncomfortable, and he has a very sore bum which is not getting better. Also, the tumour is not going to get any smaller by itself, and he is too old and poorly to think about treating it.

    He's just such a little sweetie. Will be so odd without him. The vet is going to come round here to do it. Up to now, I have been adamant that I don't want to be here (my partner will be). But now I'm starting to think maybe I should be here with him when he goes. I don't want to regret not being there for him.

    Sorry, long post. Very sad,
    Paula x

    's to you Paula. I am so so sorry that the time has come. I dont think that you can ever really prepare yourself for that feeling.

    I'm sorry to hear that Pepsi. Sounds like you are doing the best thing for Charlie. If you can bring yourself to stay with him I don't think you will regret it. It's a very peaceful way for Charlie to go.

    I'll be thinking of you.

    I cant imagine ever having to make that decision.
    Its something that really played on mind before getting Marlon and something I just cant come to terms with.

    Think of all the joy he gave you over the years.
    My thoughts are with you and your beautiful Cav.
