I hope she just closes her eyes and goes to sleep when it is her time to go.

My heart is breaking for you and Ella. Sending you both comfort and peace, Joy for the times you have had, and sweet spirits of the ones gone before her to prepare and welcome her.
All my best love,
Dale

Ella

Praying for Ella and you. My heart goes out to you. My hubby and I always looked at our dogs quality of life, and that helped us make the decision to
set them free, because we loved them.

Please Please do what's right for Ella. She not living, she's existing. The urine will break down her skin and make matters far worse than they already seem to be. I had to put to sleep the best dog I've ever owned and didn't think twice about it because it was the right thing to do for him. Put Ella first!

Well murphy1 I guess you did what you felt you had to do and found that it was the right time for you nd you dog. I know that it was very brave and selfless of you. I commend you for doing what was best for your dog. I too will do what I have to do when I see that she is really struggling. Right now she is resting comfortably, wagging when she sees us, and eating and peeing on her own. I think we have a little more quality time together and I am taking every opportunity to get those precious moments. Am I selfish? Am I not as brave as you were? Probably. Do I love her? Absolutely. I have extended her life with me by taking wonderful care of her and she is not ready to go. Maybe she is holding on because o me. I do t know but if that is the case and she is able to do it without much discomfort. What is the great harm. Maybe I will regret keeping her with me a little to long, but if that is the case I am the one who will have to live with that decision. No one else.

Jude, nobody loves and cares for your Ella more than you do. And nobody knows her better than you do. She is not ready to leave as you are not ready to let her go. Sending hugs and prayers for sweet Ella and her people.
