Where do I start? This week has been incredibly hard for me. Friday before I flew out to Arizona, I rushed Penny to the vet because she developed a small hole in her chin that night before. The vet noticed that Penny has a serve infection in her botton jaw on her bad side. The vet was positive that the infection would not go away without surgery and would kill Penny. I was devestated. Here i am sitting on the floor crying and holding my puppy finding out she has a serve infection and i was suppose to fly out the next day to Arizona to be with my family to mourn the loss of my grandmother and to go to her service.

I was tourn. So I hospilized Penny for the day and she was on fluids and antibiotics all day long. I decided to go to Arizona the next day when my boyfriend said he would do whatever Penny needed when I was gone. Also when many friends, including Sally's mom agreed to come check on her. So I brought Penny home and she started more antibiotics and pain medicine.

After taking a red eye back to Maine Monday night, I have spent every minute with my beloved Penny. Thankfully I have the week off from work and I am able to be with her. As hard as it is to say this, it is occured to me that Penny is done fighting and is ready to go. She has been fighting this cancer for 3 1/2 years! I feel so blessed to have every one of those extra days with her. She is my heart dog and has been there for me through so much in my life. I love her so incredibly much and it is so hard to let her go. I made the decision to let Penny go this Friday afternoon. It will be done peacefully here at the house.

My parents don't fly back until late Thursdy night. So unless Penny shows signs she has to go before Friday, we will let her go then so she can be surrounded by those who love her. Luna has been really cute. It is like she knows Penny and I don't feel well. She has been cuddling right up to Penny and me. A therapy dog for a therapy dog.

Please be thinking of Penny this Friday as she makes her journey to the next step in life.
Lauren: We will all be with you and Penny in spirit-we know your pain, but Penny will be so grateful to you. My Smooch and Snobear along with all of our pets at the Rainbow Bridge, will be there to greet Penny! She is one amazing dog!!

I have also learned that even though it is horrible to make decisions on "The Right Time" I actually think my past Golden Boys knew and understood ! I for one was devastated to see my boys get sick.... lose weight ... lose their appetite and finally their zest for life and not be able to hold on any longer .... as long as their quality of life was still there and they gave me the paws up look... it was a pleasure to be able to take care of their needs
Allowing them to go in an atmosphere of love and caring was in my opinion easier than seeing them struggle to hold on !!!!

Go Penny.... you are not alone !!!!!!

I'm so sorry to hear you will soon be saying good bye to your sweet girl. I'm so sad for you. It's so hard to say good bye to our fur babies.

I just wanted to tell you how sorry I am to hear about sweet Penny. The tears are flowing as I write this, as it hits too close to home for me. It was a mere 5 months ago when our hands were forced by the cancer and had to help my Sadie cross over. It is without a doubt the most difficult thing a dog owner can face...but I took solace in knowing she went peacefully, with me and my wife holding her tightly. There was never any doubt in my mind that as difficult as it was there was no way I couldn't be with her...she was there for me her whole life, so I had to be strong. You loved and cared for Penny her whole life, and you are doing the right thing. Too many of us know this pain, and carry it with us forever. I just want you to know I will be thinking of you and Penny tomorrow..all the other Golden's that have crossed over will be waiting to greet her...Including my beloved Sadie

I am so sorry. After all the decisions we've made for them throughout their lives, the last one is the very hardest.

When they tell you, you know it's time, but your heart aches so.

You and your sweet, brave Penny will be in my thoughts tomorrow.

I am so sorry this time has come. Draw strength and courage from your love for Penny, knowing that what you do is in her best interest, no matter how it hurts you. It is a tremendous gift of love that you give her. If we are very very very lucky, someday someone will love us enough not to prolong agony.

Safe and joyous passage, sweet Penny. And peace be with your loving Mom. Watch over her with as much love as she has showered on you.
