When It's Time to Say Goodbye

I'm keeping myself busy with various tasks on the Internet today, trying to keep my mind off the fact that Coco is dying. We have to take him to the vet this afternoon. He is at least 15 and has given us 13 wonderful and loyal years. I hate to say goodbye to my dear friend but it would be selfish to hang on when he is obviously so ready to let go.


  1. Oh Mary, I'm so sorry. May your 13 years of memories bless you. Saying goodbye is so hard.

  2. Oh my! I'm so sorry to hear such news; I do know the feeling. You and Coco will be in a warm place in my thoughts, Mary.

  3. Mary, I'm so sorry. Been through this with my Alex and it's hard. Warm thoughts and many Blessings.

  4. Thank you Ruthi and Vicki. Unfortunately, we'll be going through this again with Coco's littermate, Cookie.

    It's heartbreaking to have to say goodbye. All we can do is to thank God for having blessed our lives with them for as long as we have together.
