    Default Bonnie got her wings today

    I don't know where to begin, it's been a really though couple of months with Bonnie, some of you might remember in December we were going to rehome her due to the fact that she was consistantly attacking our other cavalier Penny, but I said I wouldn't rehome her until her 'lung infection' cleared-the infection in her lungs did clear and so did her aggressive behaviour Penny & Bonnie had no more attacks and life was great, that was until 2 weeks ago, when Bonnie started to fail, and fail badly and quickly.

    We had her back and forth to the vets, hoping that by twicking her meds that we could improve her life, but nothing was working, she was struggling to breath, she couldn't go on a walk, she couldn't get herself up or down off the sofa, she had difficulty sleeping, getting comfortable was struggle-she just looked miserable :-( We brought her back to see Paul (our vet) yesterday, who made the discovery that her liver was so swollen that it wasn't fluid in her abdomen but her liver pruding! It was time to say goodbye....I couldn't bare to do it yesterday, so we took her home for one final night of love and cuddles, her favourite food and treats...just for one last time. She was brought to Paul this morning, and I reckon she knew what lay ahead, as she refused to budge from the hall, we had to lift her to the car!

    Bonnie, my beautiful old angel, went to sleep at 9.45am today, she has gotten her wings, I hope she rests peacefully and waits for us at the Rainbow Bridge...I will miss her antics, her snores, her 'not so ladylike' noises but most of all her smile and kisses xxx
    Lucille,

    Des, Penny, Bonnie, Zoe & Georgia

    Poor little Bonnie, I am so sorry for your loss. How is Penny coping without her?
    I am sure you will all miss her about the place.
