Lauren, I am so sorry. Penny has been a fighter and you have been doing a great job with her. I understand your decision to let her got. You know her best and you know what you need to do for her.
Enjoy your time left with Penny, wishing you lots of loving and cuddling, you are both in my thoughts.
Hugs and kisses to Penny.

I am in tears as I say mega prayers for Penny for a smooth transition surrounded by love and peace before she enjoys her homecoming reunion with your Grandma.

Making that decision is the most painful part. I hate the idea of letting them go and I do not feel right about it but all of the common things that people say suddenly become crystal clear and carry full meaning like 'They will tell you', 'It gets to a point where living is a curse and death is almost a blessing', 'They go downhill in the last week' and "Setting them free is the kindest and most selfless thing to do."

Those photos show the love that is around Penny. That couch looks mighty comfy and Luna is such a good girl. All the best I hope that you all feel us gathering around you wishing for peace and harmony for you all.

I am so sorry about Penny. You have been there for her through her struggle with cancer and bless you for knowing that it may be her time to go to the Bridge. Know that we all support you and will be keeping you in our thoughts and prayers as you go through the next few days and in the future.

You know, it is the "right" decision. Every one has to come to that place in their own time.. You have loved Penny and she has loved you back. It is never ever an easy decision to make. I am so glad you are spending time with her. It is the best decision we can make for those dogs we love...

I am so sorry. There really aren't more words. You and Penny's fight to live and enjoy every moment is and will continue to be a source of strength for us. I'm sure Penny knows the intense love you feel for her and it's manifestation in the support for you both from your family, friends and loved ones.

Candle lit as well.

Oh Lauren, I am so very, very sorry. I know how hard this is, but you are doing the right thing for Penny. Penny is the beautiful girl she is because of you. Be proud of all you have done for her. My thoughts and prayers are with you and Penny.

I am very sorry that time arrived for sweet Penny to go to better place with no cancer and no pain. You are the best mom for her and she couldn't be any more lucky than to be your girl in this life. Thinking of you and Penny, sending many prayers. Your grandma will take care of her once she is there. Hugs.
