The tears are taking over.... I think this quote is heartbreakingly beautiful. I'm sorry, so sorry for your pain. Thank you for having the courage and compassion to let her go.

I'm so sorry for your loss. My heart hurts for you. Bridgett knew that she could rely on you to not let her suffer. You took on the pain of loss so that she could be free of the pain of her failing body. There is no greater devotion and love than that. Bless you, and Godspeed sweet Bridgett. You are forever loved.

So sorry for your loss of sweet Bridgett. The loss of a golden is terrible and we all understand your heartache. You gave her the final gift of love by freeing her from her pain and taking it on yourself. Run free sweet girl!

Am so very very sorry that you lost your beloved Bridgett. It's so hard to let them go. Words are so inadequate to comfort your broken heart. I hope that in time all the wonderful memories that you share will bring you comfort.

Carol, I am so very sorry. I was so happy the other day to see that Bridgett had celebrated her 10th birthday. Please do not second guess yourself. Your mind and logic know you did the right thing, but our hearts are not always logical.

Harley and Bridgett's stories were so similar, I had not realized until now that he died on her birthday.

Please take care.

I am very sorry for your loss of sweet Bridgett, I so wish it wasn't her time yet. She was a true fighter, I know you are very proud of her. Hugs.
Run free sweet Bridgett, you are in good company with so many beautiful golden friends.
