Today Was The Day To Say Goodbye



On March 15th, I went with my friend KC to the veterinarian but

it was not time to say goodbye.


Time To Say Good Bye


Franki gave and was given another 3 months after that visit. We weren't even sure she would make it through that night.

Franki helped transition her owner with the move to the new home. But Franki was tired and it was now time to say good bye.

Rest in peace sweet Franki.

You were loved by KC and you shared your love with all of us.

tear for Franki

Licks and kisses to Johnnie.

Maggie May loves you!

Hi Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland , I can't imagine having to make the decision that today is the day.

Rest in peace, dear Franki.  

     My sweet black cat Henry also said, "Goodbye" a few weeks ago.  We brought him home when he was six or eight weeks old; he lived to be 18.  Now Henry rests in the shade of the oak trees in the nearby woods.

    Margaret, my sympathies are with you.   And with KC.

Margaret- this is one of the hardest things anyone has to do. My sympathies are with you.

Franki looks like a sweetheart!   Pets don't live long enough.   There's always heartbreak at the end of a few short years.

 It's a hard thing to do.  I had a very sick puppy over the weekend, but I believe she will pull through.

Good morning Margaret.  One of our two is slowing down big time.  Hopefully she'll be around for another year or two but I'm not counting on it.  Hard to take.

Good morning Margaret. It is so heartbreaking to say goodbye to a loyal and loving friend. I have tears in my eyes. I hope when your friend is ready she will honor her beloved Frankie by saving another that wouldn't make it without her.

Hi Margaret - It's so sad to say goodbye to our pets, but it's the price we pay for all of the wonderful memories they leave us with. My thoughts are with KC.
