Today is a sad day at our house.
Magic Girl has gone to the Rainbow Bridge.
It was a very hard decision for us to make, but we let our Magic Puppers go to the Rainbow Bridge this morning. She had been declining steadily all week and we thought it was time to release her from the pain of this horrible disease.
We originally had an appoontment to take her to see Dr. Ellis tomorrow, but she just was getting worse. I was trying to brush her last night and she was crying as I was brushing her, and her hair was coming out in clumps - not very unusual for a Siberian, but they were not her usual fluffies. She just laid there and let me brush her - not Magic-like at all - she hated being groomed and it was always a struggle for me to brush her.
When we got up this morning, she seemed OK. I fed her breakfast - a special one this morning, Meaty Bones, her favorite. She took it and somehow she got up on the sofa - I did not see her do this, but apparently it hurt, she let out a yelp. She settled down and started to eat so I just left her alone. Then she started crying, and I had noticed blood on the sheet. I could not see her underside, which as you know, was one huge open sore. When she had finally rolled over we were able to see where she was bleeding from. We had to do something.
So after some talking and crying, we decided to take her to the ER Vet and release her.
We were with her to the end. She went very peacefully. The ER Vet put a catheter in her front paw and gave us all the time we needed. When we were ready nd Magic was setttled and calm, we called the doctor. I had Magic's head cradled in my lap, and both Tony & I were petting her and talking to her. We were telling her she was going to be ok, no more pain. We told her that we loved her.
The vet put some saline solution in the catheter just to make sure it was working correctly. Then she gave her a sedative to calm her. She waited a few minutes to make sure the sedative had taken affect, then she injected the euthanasia drug. Seconds later my Beloved Pet was gone.
It is funny how animals affect your life. Magic was one of those beings. She was such a Special Lady. She had filled my life with so much. She was such a part of my life - our life. Who would have thought that the little woo-woo's that we heard that day at the Animal Orphanage would fill our life with so much LOVE. She picked us that day. The funny little Girl with the missing ear tips and cloudy eyes. We had her for six wonderful years. She will always be a part of us.
Run pain free my Beautiful Magic Girl.
