My sweet baby girl, EQ, passed away 2 days ago and I am crying as I type this. She had some health problems and rapidly deteriorated within the last 2 weeks. The vet found a mass on her belly and suspected cancer. We set up hospice stations for her in our home and gave her medications, including subcutaneous fluids. By the end she was so frail and weak and weighed only 4 pounds.
We made the painful decision to end her suffering peacefully. It was the hardest thing that I have ever had to do. She was my best friend and was with me for over 16 years. I never knew that I could love someone as much as I love her. She always slept with me at night and greeted me every day when I came home.
There is so much in my house that reminds me of her. Her favorite napping spot, her toys, her food bowl, etc. She is everywhere. She is my heart and I miss her so very much. :-( Rest in peace, sweet baby girl!
