I just wish I could remember - twice before I had telephoned Ram [my Vet] and said it was time. First time he said to sleep on it and of course she had bucked up by then. Second time he said to call him in one hour and that was the one hour she rested and I was asleep.

This time there was no doubt. I called him [at his home] and he said to call back in an hour. Giving me time. But I had to call him back and he came round at half past midnight. Why was he wearing his scrubs? He finishes at 3pm when his second Vet takes over?

I remember sitting on the floor propped up against the couch calling her to come to me - and she lay across my lap so quietly, and Ram said Juli are you sure, because there is no going back.

But I had no choice, did I. It was not for me it was for her. She had had enough and was almost in status.

I did not kill her. Ram did not kill her. The epilepsy had killed her brain and she just had enough left to know to come to me when I called her. And it was not because, as someone said, that it was convenient for me, it was because because she could not take any more.

I had done everything I could for her - far more than many epi owners do who give up. I never gave up on Pereg - I did everything I could for her but it was just not enough for the severity of her epilepsy.

I could not look at her but I cuddled her and told her how much I loved her and could not even look at Ram but was aware of him coming towards us with a stethoscope. Was not looking anywhere, just cuddling her. But I had a new blankie - not hers but one like an old wheelie like me covers her knees with - because I would not let him take her unless she was wrapped up warm.

And he took her to his car and came back with her collar and harness and all her tags.

But I did not even kiss her goodbye.

And I should have given her one of  her monkeys when he took her.

You could not have killed her as you loved far too much and Ram and us know what you did was best for her   never for you. People that have furry families understand the pain you are going through and we send our love to you thank you for letting us share with you Thank you

its difficult not to beat yourself up, especially with a young dog. i lapse into memory and do it to myself about my wee Tyke and that was three years ago, getting bloomin teary now and im supposed to be a rufty tifty gundog handler.

you gave her your final gift, you did not kill her you did what was best for her and most painful for you, you displayed courage and love. never forget that!

Two years since you were given peace - my beloved angel Pereg - and I still cry for you. You were not very old but the Monster had taken its toll and it showed in your beautiful eyes.

I do not miss the Monster but oh how I miss you, Pereg. I loved you so much and always will. You were laid to rest in a forest somewhere, wrapped in a new blankie.

At peace now.

Aww it is two years on 1st June that we lost our Chi to cancer. I buried her down our lane and planted a Crab Apple Tree on top of her.
