Loss of an old beloved friend

We are sad to inform y'all that our dear sweet old Shadow Wood dog,
has crossed the Rainbow Bridge today. (April 9th, 2013 11:30 am)

Ken and I made the very difficult decision to not have her in pain anymore.
She went quietly and painlessly.

The large mass (cancer) in her mouth had gotten so bad
she could hardly eat and was in great pain even on strong pain medications.
She is in a much better place now.

Ken, Sunny Delight and I will her deeply.
However she had brought us all so much love and enjoyment over the years.

We had taken one last camping trip to Florida earlier this month.
Shadow Wood so enjoyed sitting in the sun. She was a great little traveler.

We will remember her happily.
R.I.P. old dog.

Paula, Ken & Sunny Delight

My sympathies go out to you. We know the feeling. Had to have our poodle of 16 years put down due to cancer and diabetes. Avery tough thing to do, but you are right, they are in a much better place now and not hurting anymore.

My deepest sympathies for your loss. Although I try to be the strong one around the kids and wife to the point they think I don't care, I've mourned the loss, and celebrated the life, of our pets in my quiet time. Celebrate their life!

Here too short, gone too soon - the price we pay for their unconditional love. She will be cradled close in your hearts forever.
