RIP My Sweet Sheldie
You are missed so much my sweet Sheldie.
You came into our family when you were only 3 months. You were such a loveable sweet boy and you were so loved. From family life to living alone with me you adjusted to it all and helped me with my life transitions and challenges. Always by my side – my constant companion even going with me to the office you were loved by my work colleagues too. And then 2020 happened and we stayed home. I’m not sure I would have survived the past horrible year without you.
You had many health issues and your doctors told me too many times that “it was time to start thinking about THE decision”. The last time you and I heard that was almost 3 years ago and you survived and thrived. We were all so happy. But your little body had been through so much, you had too many issues for too long. You hadn’t played ball in so long – you tried but it lasted for a couple of minutes only. You hadn’t gone on a walk in so long – you tried but it hurt and I had to carry you back – so we gave up after a while. And then that last night, you were with us but you “weren’t with us”. Your doctor said it was the right thing to do, to let you go. It was the HARDEST thing I had to do but I know it was the right thing to do for you. You went peacefully in my arms and I am thankful that at the end you had no pain.
I hope you are running around with lots of friends and are pain free – I hope you have lots of balls around you. Thank you for being my devoted companion and friend. Rest in Peace my sweet Sheldie.
