Byron's tumour got massively worse over the weekend. We went back to the vets' today and took the decision that, given that it was inoperable and was getting so much worse so quickly it was better to end it now before he really started suffering. I was with him at the end, and held him and told him what a good boy he was and that I love him. He died at about 11.30.

Rest in peace, baby boy.

Blogging may be light for a while.

Oh, I am so sorry.
Byron was a lovely and lovable chap even for someone like me who isn't too keen on dogs.
I never know what to say in such situations so I shall provide a visual memory:
Mmm, Tea

R.I.P. Byron

I'm sorry sweetheart, Byron was a lovely boy (even when he was kicking me off the sofa and rolling in fox poo) and he was so lucky to have a family like yours to love him *hug*

Oh, Jennie, I'm so, so sorry. I know how much you all loved him and how devastated you will be to lose him. Lots and lots of love to you. This next while's going to be tough. I and I'm sure all your other friends are here if you need us.

I wish I'd had the chance to meet Byron. He clearly has a long list of friends he's made in his lifetime.

I'm so sorry to hear this. Poor Byron. I am glad you were able to be with him at the end, though. He has certainly led a much-loved life.

Oh, Byron!

I'm so glad he spent his last stretch with a human who loved him as much as he loved her. He deserved nothing less than a peaceful end to the pain.

All my love for you, Roxie, and the rest of your family.

I'm so sorry for your loss.

I wish all pets could have the kind of life that Byron had with you-- love, care, and the strength and compassion to make the right decision for him at the end.

As you say, even in this decision you thought of him first. It's so hard to let someone we love so much go, but you spared him suffering and he was in your loving arms when he went. I've had to do it, too, and it's so horrible even when you know it's the right thing to do.

He had a wonderful life with you and your family. Many many many hugs.

I never got to meet Byron, but hearing about him all these years, I feel like I know him.

My heart goes out to you and the fam. I'm sure Byron is checking out the Rainbow Bridge and having a great time right now.

*hugs*

Oh god, so so sorry to hear this Jennie. He was such a lovable, cuddly dog the one and only time I met him those few years back. He went know he was and always will be loved, and no matter how hard it was, it would have been much harder letting him live on in pain and suffering. My heart goes out to you and the family, lots of hugs for you all.

Now excuse me whilst I go hug my own little furry bundle of joy.

I'm so sorry- I didn't see this post, I've been rather lax in checking LJ and DW recently. I too, never know what to say, but you have my condolences.

I hope you had a good Newtonmas, and all the best for the new year.
