Ted had to be put down today :(. She had cancer like me.
Rosie – so sorry, that’s very sad.
The link is a little poem and it’s very nice – but be warned, if you’re feeling weepy – well you’ll cry.
Hugs to you
I am so very sorry, I am sure Ted had a wonderful life with you and gave unconditional love in return.
Norton wont let me visit the poem.
😦 for the loss of your furbaby
It’s about saying goodbye to a pet – here it is
I always knew this time would come,
From the very instant our eyes first met.
How I loved you then! How I love you now!
I made a promise then, and I will keep that promise now…
You will not suffer from a pain that will not heal;
You will not know the loss of a life remembered, now gone.
It is for me alone to make this decision,
The price for the bright joy and pure laughter
You brought me during the time we shared.
I am the only one who can decide when it is time.
When my hope dies, and my fear rides high,
Just when I need you most, I must let you go.
It is for you alone to tell me when you are ready
For without your guidance, I will not know
When to lay my grief, my guilt, my anger
My sorrow and my selfish heart aside
And give you this last gift, this greatest gift.
Your eyes will speak to mine, and I will know.
The pain of this moment is excruciating.
Tears stream down my face in a river of sorrow.
And my heart drowns in a pool of grief.
For you have spoken and I have listened,
And unlike other decisions I have made
This one brings no relief…no comfort..no peace.
For if there´s one thing you´ve taught me,
If there´s only one thing I´ve learned…
Unconditional love has a condition after all,
I must be willing to let you go, when you speak to me
I must be willing to help you go, if you cannot go alone.
And I must accept my pain so you can be free of yours.
Go easily now, go quickly now,
Do not linger here, it is time for you to leave.
Go find your strength, go find your youth.
Go find the ones who’ve gone before you.
You are free to leave me now, free to let your spirit soar
Rest easy now, your pain will soon be gone.
I pray I will find comfort in my memories…
In the dark and lonely days ahead.
I cannot say I will not miss you, I cannot say I will not cry.
For only my tears can heal my broken heart.
But, I promise you this; as long as I live,
You will live, alive in my mind, forever in my heart.
So I give you this last gift, all I have left to give,
And this will be my greatest gift…sending you away.
It is the measure of my unconditional love…
For only the greatest love can say,
“Good-bye, go find the bridge, we’ll meet again,
Loving you has been the greatest gift of all.”

Im so sorry about Ted Bless her x How is your shoulder?
Sorry Rosie, poor lil Ted
Do you know Rosie that it’s the greatest gift we can give our animals?
The freedom from pain.
It’s the hardest thing to do for us, it’s utterly heartbreaking but…
And I wish I’d been able to do it for my Dad and my Mum. Oh boy did they suffer, and oh boy did my Mum ask me to take her to the vets quite a few times!
But when it comes to Eshaness’ time…I’ll be broken.
But Ted is with my Dad, and all my hamsters (Timmy was my first one, Snowy was my oldest at 4 years!) and playing happily wherever hamsters go.
Aw sorry to hear your news, these little animals succumb so easily. I’ve had a few over the years. Have guinea pigs now, they live longer and are very sweet. Xx
Sweetie I’m so sorry…..she can snuggle down with my Edward…..big hugs, lovely……..xxxx
So hard to lose a much loved pet. But hope you still manage to have a great holiday, you really need it. x
Hi Rosie, sorry to hear about Ted.
Hope you’re packing goes well,
I’m sure that Ted had the best life possible with you looking after him Rosie although I’m sure that you’re feeling very sad regardless now he’s gone. Have a lovely holiday x
Very sorry about Ted. Have a great time on holiday and relax! x
