    Default Bertie has gone to the Rainbow Bridge

    Sadly, last night, my beloved Bertie took a turn for the worse and I had to take him to the emergency vet where they admitted him to try and stabilize him.

    Unfortunately, they couldn't stabilize him and called me a couple of hours later to go down there to say goodbye.

    Poor Bertie was so very exhausted, he went peacefully with his chin in my hand and me stroking him and telling him how much I love him.

    Today I feel so very empty and lost without him, can't believe he's gone so quickly. I just want my baby back but he's gone :-(

    This is so sad. At least he knew you were there with him and how much you loved him.

    You are in my thoughts.

    Those are probably the saddest but most true words spoken of anyone who has lost a loved pet. I'm so sorry about Bertie. He was too young to be in such discomfort. I'm glad you were with him at the end. I hope you'll find peace in his memory.

    I am so, so sorry. Your pain and sadness comes across in your post. It's so especially hard to lose them to such an illness, when they should have many more years ahead. I am sure he was greatly comforted by your being there, and as hard as it can be at the time, it is very comforting later to know you were there and have that memory. It is a final kindness based in great love, that we can do -- to have the courage to let them go so suffering doesn't continue, and to stand by them at that time and not leave, as they stood by us through so many ups and downs in our lives. You took the right path and I hope that brings comfort and peace as time passes and the loss isn't so raw.

    I am so sorry to read this. Find comfort in the fact that you were with him so I doubt he was frightened.
