Cody has been my best friend for the past 6 years. Giving unconditional love and asking for just that in return. We live on the second floor and his hind end is giving out. He has done nothing except pee since October and water for him is just like a drug craving. He craves it. He canít get enough of it. Heís lost a lot of weight in the last couple of weeks. He used to be 11 0 pounds but now I think he might be 70 pounds. His balance is starting to go and he is breathing hard. He is my only friend and I canít let him go, but I have done nothing but just sit and sob since the 23rd of December when he fell on the stairs. I canít bring myself to take his life. He looks at me with those eyes and I just canít take his life. He was still playing with his ball as of yesterday! I donít know what to do. I canít, I just canít let him go, but if heís in pain I have no right to ask him to stay. I donít think heíll make it through the week. If he does Iíll be very surprised. This yearís Christmas has been awful. How do you say good-bye to your best and only friend who gave you love without question? I love him so much.
I just canít let Cody goÖ..I love him so much
I know some people can't understand the bond between a person and a dog but when you can't have kids, they become your only children. That bond is just as strong. How do I break that bond now by taking his life. I just can't let him go.......
I have two other girls that have gone to Rainbow Bridge, but unlike the poem, I don't think I'll ever see them again. Many times I have the feeling that I'm not going that way and I'll never see my dogs again. I have a lot of times felt like I would be going in the other direction, if you know what I mean.
Thank you for letting me start the process of letting by best friend go
