    The treatments for Annabelle aren't working anymore. Her little throat is growing closed. She stopped eating as of last night. I just petted her at 2 am. She still tries to get to us, and looks at me with that sweet little Annabelle Lee face. She is having a hard time walking. I just keep seeing her prancing around because she wants to put on her pink fluffy dress and go for a walk and be Miss Congeniality (She was literally named my town's Miss Congeniality.) Or I see her scarfing down her food in 30 seconds flat. This is truly the part of it that sucks.

    Missy, I'm so sorry. I'm right there in the struggle with you. Just think how lucky Annabelle has been to have not only a loving, but a compassionate and thoughtful owner. We do all we can until the end, but seeing them struggle is a knife in the heart. I'm so sorry. She sounds like a wonderful character. :hugs

    I'm so sorry to hear about Annabelle. I think one of the toughest parts of loving our precious dogs is seeing them decline and remembering them as you do, lively and full of life. It is truly one of the most awful things we experience, and there's nothing we can do about it. Keep Annabelle close to you and try to take comfort in the knowledge that you gave her a wonderful life. Sending you big hugs. :hugs

    My heart truly goes out to you and dear Annabelle. What we would not do for more time with our beloved little ones. I know how heavy your heart is now. Please know we all care for you at this difficult time and wish soft pats and gentle hugs for you both. :hugs

    Missy, I am so sorry your precious Annabelle is not responding to her treatments anymore. We all dread coming to this stage in the life of a little one who means so much to us...it is heartbreaking. But how incredibly blessed Annabelle is for all the wonderful years of love and care you have given her...try to hold onto that knowledge as you navigate the difficult decisions that will lie ahead.
    Sending many hugs, Trini

    I am truly sorry to hear, I just want to cry and hug you all. Poor dear sweet Annabelle. It's such an awful decision to have to make. Know that we are all here thinking of you and we'll miss Annabelle.
