KiKi has gone to the Rainbow Bridge

Post by skrpio » Tue Oct 31, 2006 6:55 am

I was so dreading the moment I had to write this........
My darling KiKi decided it was time. She left us at 1.00am this morning and I was not there. My beautiful, devoted, funny and loving Dogue has gone and I am heartbroken. I am numb and I don't know what to do or how to cope. So many tears have been shed I can't cry anymore.
Thank you my friends for being part of our lives, for your support, and for your thoughts and prayers. Like always, God decided he needed someone I loved and took them away from me.
Run free my darling KiKi Bean and wait for me.
Jane
In loving memory of my special KiKi Bean

Jane,

I am just so sorry and sad, all that you did with such love and devotion and she had to leave you.

I truly believe we meet our loved ones again, and for sure Kiki will be waiting for you when it is time. Until then she is in a pain free place and able to rest.

The heartbreak will ease in time, even though you can't see it now, and you'll be able to remember the good times and the love you gave each other.

I send you every good and kind thought that I have for you and your family.

OH Jane!!

I cannot express to you the sadness I'm feeling for Kiki and you at this moment! I don't know what to say? Your girl was doing so well and I think all of us thought the seizures were over for her and then this! I know your heart is shattered into a million pieces and nothing anyone can say will comfort you at this time. You'll miss her for sure, but take comfort knowing you went above and beyond for that beautiful girl and helped so many others on this list in the process.

Please be gentle with yourself during this time,

P.S. Did Kiki leave on her own?

Hi Helen, Yes she went by her own decision. I did not get a chance to say goodbye as we all thought by yesterday that she was going to pull through this.

If it's any comfort (which I'm sure it isn't) you didn't have to make the decision for her! I know it still hurts that you've lost her and everything happened so fast, but it wasn't you that had to give the vet the go ahead to take her life.

This is WITHOUT A DOUBT! the worst part of animal ownership and love......

Oh Jane Im so sorry. It is so painful to loose one of our little ones, but I think not having the cherished memories would be worse. Take care of yourself.

Jane,
I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I know there are no words that will help with the pain right now, but know we are all thinking of you and wishing we could help ease your sorrow. Kiki is free now, no more pain or suffering and she knew she was loved very much. Please accept my condolences during this difficult time. Gentle hugs to you and your family.

Oh no Jane! this is just so sad and I am so Sorry, you couldn't have done more nor loved Kiki any more. Kiki has so many firend to play with now, I wonder if they all talk about us? I know she would have such great things to say about you. No words can comfort you right now but my thoughts and prayers are with you. Please keep in touch with us, we would miss you around here.

I know Kiki would have wonderful things to say about Jane because never was a dog loved so much.

And I would like to add that most of us on this web-site should also say wonderful things about Jane, she has always been a tower and strength and a fountain of knowledge (like a female Finndog!!!!)

I hope you are coping Jane

Post by kain » Thu Nov 02, 2006 4:25 am

Thanks so much Scholz....and Sue ---really needed that...
I miss Kain so much!! I really would like to get another baby but somehow I am very scared to do it!! I am sure one day I will get one....!!
There is not a single day that passes and I am not thinking of my boy...
The worst I have to deal with is that my mind keeps playing the scene of Kain taking his last breath over and over.. I wish this would faint away...

Hugs,
Helen
