I posted back in June, asking for prayers for my Great Dane.
Tomorrow, we have a vet appointment where we will most likely be putting him down.
His condition has gotten worse in the last few weeks.
He cannot walk without help. We have to pick him up to stand. Even then, he falls over a lot. There are days when he can’t walk at all.
A few days ago, I was picking him up and he gave me that look that animals get near the end that says, “It’s okay, Momma. You can let me go, now.”
Asking for prayers for him, his journey ahead, and us, and our journey ahead.
For a few weeks, my old Great Dane has had trouble walking.
Tonight, for the first time, he cannot walk.
My prayer request is that he can, or that God grants the vets and our family wisdom to know what to do.
Thanks in advance!
This morning our beautiful kitty passed away in my daughter’s arms. She was 16 and we had her for 7 years. She was adopted from the Humane Society when no one else wanted her or could take care of her. So we did.
Pets bring us such joy, yet so much sorrow when they have lived their years. We tell ourselves that they lived a good life — which they did. Yet, we don’t tell them that they are dying because of us — because we sinned in the Garden. It’s heartbreaking to think of the Garden and how everyone was disease free and then one mistake ends up in death as a penalty for all — even the innocents. We love them with every breath in our bodies, but that cannot save them from death.
I can’t pretend to understand God and His ways, but when it’s time to say good-bye to those you love, it’s a conflict of emotions.
I write this with my 17-year old cat on my lap. Her days are numbers as well (as are all of ours)…
