You all know that my precious Princee has had a bad year and it is not getting any better. Please pray that I will have the courage to do the right thing for her when the time comes. I know you all say you will know but I don't know and I am so torn. She is not really suffering, but she can't get in and out of the house by herself, she can't get up off the hardwood floor and I am keeping her in my bedroom where there is carpet most of the day. She can't get up and down the steps to go outside. We wrap a lift (bag with handles) around her to help her in and out. We are not able to pick her up. That is the most fustrating part for me I can't help her. I know her quality of life is next to nothing. She still loves to eat. I talked to her for a long time today and she looks sad but she wagged her tail and she kissed me and I just can't do it. I can't even imagine my life without her. She is my little girl, my side kick, my heart dog. How can I give her up. Will I know for sure when it is time. Some days I think what am I doing why can't I let her go, then she seems a little better and I just can't do it. Please pray for us, yes my husband is just as torn as I am. My wonderful vet just says it's ok sweetie, it's ok to me. He has been so good to us and to Princee.
Oh Shirley, I am so sorry you & Princess are going through this. I know it is hard. i will keep al of you in my prayers. It is never easy. But I know you will know when it is time. She will let you know. I can't explain it...but you will know. ((((HUGS))))
I'm so sorry, Shirley. It's so hard to let go. There in spirit with you.

I am so sorry that you are going through this. I lost the love of my life two months ago, and the others are right. You will know when it's time. I also was afraid I would make the wrong decision, but she let me know. The anticipatory grief can be overwhelming at times, but know in the end you will do what is right for your girl. My advice is to keep in close contact with your vet, and spend as much time with her as you can. It hurts like no other to let them go, but it is our last gift to them. I will keep your family in my thoughts.
Keep talking to her and ask her to tell you when she's had enough. ((((hugs)))) By your side.

I am so sorry. People told me Kass would let me know, but like Princee she kept wagging her tail and it tore me apart. You will know in your heart that no matter how much you want her here, you have to do the hardest thing we all have to face and give her that last gift of love.
Good thoughts coming. Wish there were words to help.
You and Princee have my prayers and good thoughts.
Sending you good thoughts and prayers.
