I am very sorry for your loss. It is so HARD to let them go, but you did right by Senji… and he thanks you for that. Dogs bring so much happiness to our lives, but such sadness when they leave us. Senji will wait for you, and he won't wait alone, many have recently arrived at the bridge, including my Billy. Peace
I read through the posts on this thread and, of course, broke into tears.
I stopped by here to find out if anyone has had a Basenji that simply died of old age (no disease or trauma as the cause of death). Ziggy is now 14 years old and doing very well for a senior dog, but I know there will come a time when he decides "enough." I read a few stories from owners who said their dog found a comfy place to lie down, went to sleep, and simply didn't wake up. Has anyone else experienced this?
(passing out Kleenex tissues)
It always breaks ones heart when a beloved pet passes away but in my opinion, the best way. It's so upsetting and always a lasting image to see them waste away or suffer, it's a blessing from above when they just decide its time and go peacefully. ( although still so painful for us)
