    Default 13 y/o westie with cushings - Snickers has passed

    Snickers has crossed the bridge. He was losing all strength in hind legs and very obviously in distress. He went very peacefully at the vets office. He was a wonderful dog and with a true heart of gold. Thank you to everyone for all your help. I will check back from time to time to see how everyone is doing.

    Dee,

    I am so, so sorry about your beloved Snickers.

    You did everything a good Mom could have done and more.

    Please remember WE ARE HERE FOR YOU.

    Again, from the bottom of my heart, I am so sorry.

    Dear Dee,

    I am so sorry and stunned to read this sad news about your sweet Snickers. We do all we can to help our babies but when all our efforts fail, and we have no real options to choose from to ease their suffering, then we have to make the decision to set them free.

    I am sure this decision was not easy for you to make, but please know Snickers is now pain free, once again whole as he was intended to be, running and playing with the babies across the Bridge.

    A candle has been lit for Snickers at:

    Thank you for the candle. Snickers was a 12th birthday present for my daughter and was an incredible dog. Saying goodbye is never easy but I do know that setting him free was the right thing to do.
