MY DARLING BUTTONS xxxx


This is the post I prayed I would never have to write and the words are very hard to find.

My darling Buttons fell ill on his birthday last Thursday and unable to get him to eat or drink I took him to the vets that evening.  He stayed at the vets both Thursday and Friday evening with no improvement and yesterday morning the Vet, after numerous examinations and every attempt to make him well again, found a lump in his abdomen, the tumor had regrown.  My Buttons had done enough fighting and had done so well that my decision was not a hard one, no more suffering.  I loved him dearly.

Buttons now sleeps peacefully.

Jane, my heart goes out to you. I hope all your happy, sweet memories of him will help you through this difficult time. It sounds like you made the right decision though I know that didn't make it any easier. May he now rest pain free and in peace. (((Hugs)))

Oh, Jane--I'm so, so sorry to read about dear Buttons. The exact same thing happened with my lovely, black cat--his tumor reappeared after his surgery. It is such a heart-wrenching decision...but the right one for him. He was lucky to have a home with such a loving family all those years. Sending you a huge hug...

I am so sorry to read about your sweet Buttons. I had to put my beloved schnauzer to sleep a few years ago because of a tumor and I know how you feel. I'm so sorry for your loss.
