Joke for the HoE XMas Birds Christmas Ornament Exchange. I really love it. This is Winter Song by Primrose Needleworks from the JCS 2011 Christmas Ornament Issue. I had it on my "to do" list, but am thrilled to remove it now that I have this perfect one from Joke. I am going to love displaying this every year - thank you again Joke :-)
Yesterday I drove him to his vet and he was euthanized. It had to be done. He was miserable and not ambulatory. I spent four days syringe feeding him food and water. The meds he had to take were tough on him. He gave up. He had no chance. We spent Sunday saying goodbye to him. I stayed with him while he passed. He passed with grace and was so beautiful in his death. He simply lay peacefully, his eyes dilated and my vet whispered "I love you Gig" and then "He's gone now." Many kisses later, I left. Tears came later, I know he is at peace now. He will come home by way of ashes in a week or two. We are very sad here. This was very sudden. I really miss my little boy who always slept tucked up against my hip in our bed. I miss his deep throaty voice. I just plain old miss him.
