July 3, 2018, a day, my beloved Jack Russell Terrier Blaze who had been coping with Canine Cognative Dementia, suddenly started having very bad seizures at 11:30pm. I stayed up with him all night, realizing he was slipping from reality, to a fur baby I was scared was going to either hurt himself or have an aneurysm and die in my arms.
Suddenly my beloved 12 year old, was in pain and I couldn’t make him feel better.
I am a loving owner who believes in never having an animal suffer, no matter how heartbreaking.
I realized on the morning of July 4, 2018, Blaze physically and mentally was no longer the boy he had been. He had so many seizures through the night, I knew by the look in my baby’s eyes he wanted me to let him go and I honored him. Before, we left our home, I asked him if he wanted to see Lucy our other JRT and his fur sister, without hesitation, she and he looked at one another and I really believe they knew.
Later that morning, my beloved Blaze, travelled home to where he was never to be in any pain ever again. My heart broken, memories of our time together, how he saved me from a dark space in my life.
The following weeks were met with grieving. Pets grieve no different than we do. After a few months had gone by we adopted a wire haired terrier from a rescue where I also rescued Lucy!!
Once I figure out how to upload photos I will!!
