Default Goodbye Cassie

My 13 year old Standard Poodle, Midnights Cassandra Lee ("Cassie") started having seizures last night, then threw her head back, her front legs got really stiff and she can't feel/use her back legs. She won't eat, but will drink. We had x-rays taken today and she has a tumor the size of a grapefruit next to her spine that has intertwined with her spine and caused back end paralysis. She had mammary tumors taken off a few weeks ago, and this tumor was not there so it's a very rapidly growing tumor. I am just heartbroken, she's my heart baby girl, I've had her since she was 12 weeks old. You can see pictures and such on her Dogster page: http://www.dogster.com/dogs/264707 She really has done quite well for a large dog her age, she just recently started slowing down. She sleeps alot but still would run around and get excited for things. We will be helping her cross over to rainbow bridge tomorrow with family present.

I'm so sorry, I've been there too, and I know how difficult it is. She's a beautiful girl, I love the pic of her on dogster. I'm glad you had 13 wonderful years with her. Hugs to you and Cassie. xx

I am so sorry for your loss.. It never gets any easier when we lose them. One of our pugs will be 17 if he makes it till Feb 6th. I know his time is coming soon and it is so very difficult.

I'm so sorry for your loss...Bella and I send hugs to you and your family.

If it should be that I grow weak,
And pain should keep me from my sleep,
Then you must do what must be done,
For this last battle cannot be won.

You will be sad, I understand,
Don't let your grief then stay your hand.
For this day more than all the rest,
Your love for me must stand the test.

We've had many happy years,
What is to come can hold no fears.
You'd not want me to suffer so,
The time has come, please let me go.

I know in time that you will see,
The kindness that you did for me.
Although my tail its last has waved,
From pain and suffering I've been saved.

Take me where my needs they'll tend
And stay with me, if you can, to the end.
Hold me firm and speak to me
Until my eyes no longer see.

Please do not grieve, it must be you
Who had this painful thing to do.
We've been so close, we two, all these years,
Don't let your heart hold back its tears.


Rest in peace, sweet Cassie...
