My Gizmo

Hi me lovlies, sorry I dont have a card to post, my smallest yorkie has been putting weight on for quite a while and his breathing never been good from being a puppy, they kept saying he had a heart murmer from when I got him, but never did anything, I tookhim to the vets on monday as he looked swollen and had been slowing down for quite a while, and we thought it was just ageing,he was 7.  The vet shocked us by sying he was in end stage heart failure, and yesterday after him being transported all around the globe as the original x ray machine was broken at the vets, I had to put him to sleep, he was like one of my children, and im devastated, I hope you understand, somewhere I had to write about my beautiful little boy. I feel so sad, he was the cutest little thing with a heart like a lion, Im going to miss him so much. xxxxxxxxxxxx R.I.P Gizmo  I love you so much.

Marilyn said...

Aww June, this is so sad and I am so sorry. Losing one of the 'fur kids' is devastating and heartbreaking. It changes everything for us, everything.
I love what you say in your tribute to Gizmo.. that he had a heart like a lion. Animals, especially dogs, complete us, they teach us unconditional love and compassion and we are so lucky to have or to have had one.

Janie Printz said...

Sweet June, I'm so sorry to hear you had to put your little Gizmo to sleep. Only us who have pets can understand what a huge loss that is. I'm sure he'll be looking down from "doggie heaven" every day watching you work in your craft room ... Just hold his memory close & he will rest in peace from all the love you gave him.
Big hugs, Janie

ChrisAndCat said...

Oh no, I'm so sorry, poor little Gizmo and poor you. I know how hard it is losing a much loved companion. We lost Sooty (my avatar) aged nearly 22 last year and she was what I would call my soulpet. We had also lost Peaches the year before aged only 4 to Lymphoma so I understand how sad you feel at the moment. I stopped crafting for a while after but now dedicate my cards to their memory and donate them to a local animal rescue charity so I feel I am doing something useful in their memory, I have also made (but cant quite bring myself to finish it as it makes it a bit too real) a memory box with things in like the cards I received when they went, their hair brush, favourite toy, etc, some whiskers I had saved and fur, maybe you would feel like making something for Gizmo when the shock has eased - a scrapbook of favourite pics or a memory box?

Vicky said...

Oh June, I am so sorry to hear about your beloved Gizmo, I know how close we are to our pets, they are members of the family. I also know only too well how you must be feeling, I've been there too many times. Sending all of my love to you . Sleep tight sweet Gizmo

Irish Eyes said...

I'm so sorry about your little pup. It is a hard thing to do. Just heartbreaking.

IF IT SHOULD BE
If it should be that I grow weak
And pain should keep me from my sleep,
Then you must do what must be done,
For this last battle cannot be won.
You will be sad, I understand.
Don't let your grief then stay your hand.
For this day, more than all the rest,
Your love for me must stand the test.
We've had so many happy years.
What is to come can hold no fears.
You'd not want me to suffer so;
The time has come -- please let me go.
Take me where my need they'll tend,
And please stay with me till the end.
Hold me firm and speak to me,
Until my eyes no longer see.
I know in time that you will see
The kindness that you did for me.
Although my tail its last has waved,
From pain and suffering I've been saved.
Please do not grieve -- it must be you
Who had this painful thing to do.
We've been so close, we two, these years;
Don't let your heart hold back its tears. - Anonymous

Take care,
Pam
