Paddy went to the Rainbow Bridge a year ago today

Today it is a year since Paddy passed over the Rainbow Bridge.

Probably the best thing we can ever do for our furry family members is give them the gift of a peaceful and dignified end.

It is often hard to know when it is time. You do sometimes ask that ‘what if’ question and feel guilty for choosing euthanasia. It is the hardest thing to do, to end the life of a living, beloved thing thing.

With Paddy, I knew that it was time, and I know that I did the right thing. He didn’t have to suffer needlessly and he had quality of life until the last possible moment. He seemed to tell me that day it was time. I have no regret or guilt.  But I miss him every single day and I am so sad that he is gone. RIP boy.

  1. I believe in afterlife and that we will be together with them again. My heart aches, and always will, for our recently-passed 14-year-old Bichon Gracie. I was spared euthanizing…she passed suddenly at home during a peaceful day. The photos are priceless, I treasure those mementos. And: We’re picking up a puppy tomorrow! I’ve found an etsy artisan who creates pet mourning jewelry with remains. I’m considering a glass cabochon ring with a bit of fur set in. It seems so appropriate. Thank you for sharing Paddy with your subscribers. xx

  2. Beautiful Paddy! It is pretty amazing how soon after the rambunctious Ziggy showed up and befriended Fluffy so quick! Paddy sent Ziggy no doubt!
