you have received over 4 years of bonus time with your Eddie as when you first entered the forum things look kind of bleak but you and eddies had other ideas about that and you 2 went to work getting him back to enjoying life and your joy to watch him rebound to his old self .

jesse had an episode a couple weeks ago and i had that feeling time was fleeting for her being almost 13 with the other challenges she has but she rebounded but as with eddie you new the clock was ticking and both of you knew it was time the hardest but greatest gift you can give to a suffering furry friend . i just hope i will have the same fortitude you had for eddie

take care antonia you have been a real asset on the forum for dogs that have gone a similar path as your eddie and shows they can live a long happy dogs life even with these challenges

My condolences on the loss of Eddie. I have a 14 yr. old that has all the same issues you described Eddie had. His back legs collapse more frequently. I know I will be facing the same awful decision soon.

You had many wonderful years with Eddie Bear and gave him additional time by treating his diabetes. He will always be with you.

Ah, Antonia... I'm so sorry to learn of Eddie's passing. I know how hard it is when you have won battle after battle after battle to finally face one you cannot win. Your deep love for him has always been obvious from your posts.

Sending a kiss skyward to him and our hug to you and yours.

Natalie

Thank you all for your kind replies. I do feel a real part of a community on here - of people who know what it is like to become exceptionally close to your dog because you are so involved in keeping him well.

Thanks again for all the support over all the years
Antonia

Oh Antonia! I can't believe I missed this! I am so very sorry to read about Eddie. 😢 I've always thought he and Vinny were a lot alike. I remember awhile ago, you posted about Eddie being able to tell time and I got such a chuckle. I swear Vinny's got a watch on him under his fur sometimes! Maybe it's a lab thing.

I sorry. I wish there was more I could say to help. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

Since the passing of Jake, I don't come to the forum as much. I am so sorry to hear that Eddie had passed. Run free sweet Eddie.
