Goodbye Darling Poppy
There was nothing anyone could do. She had a dreadful night with laboured breathing, and deep in my heart I feared the worse.
She was at the vet's twice yesterday for serum and time in the oxygen tank. She had an ultrasound that showed an enlarged liver. Blood tests couldn't be taken until today, because the serum and oxygen were the priority. They were keeping her alive.
Mr A took her to the vet very early this morning, and within minutes of arriving her little heart just gave up. I am grateful that it happened this way, fairly quickly, with no unnecessary suffering, and that I didn't have to make the awful decision to let her go.
It never gets any easier.
We loved you so much and gave you a chance 4 years ago. If we hadn't, you would not have survived.
Rest in Peace darling Poppy
