my poor baby, i went to give him his meds this evening for his infected tail, and he was cold and curled into a ball. i administered sub-q's and his baytril through a butterfly iv and he woke up and started perking a lot but then he started to choke on every breath. i got him to the emergency vet and she said he was in a lot of pain, his organs were shutting down and that he needed help getting to the bridge <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crying.gif" alt="" /> i've never had to make such a decision before, but he seemed to be hurting so much, i hope i did the right thing <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crying.gif" alt="" /> when she gave him the shot it leaked out through his nose, she said that meant his lungs were bad, and his kidneys were probably shutting down <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crying.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crying.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crying.gif" alt="" />

if i EVER find the woman that did this to toby and violet, and the rest of their colony, i swear, she will regret the day she first saw a glider. he didn't deserve to go through this! a year of health and good care and i still couldn't save him! she needs to pay! how could anyone be so heartless? there are three of my babies in the ground now because of someone's carelessness! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crying.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crying.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crying.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crying.gif" alt="" />

I'm so very sorry for your loss. It was a hard choice to let him go, but I also know that he appreciated the last gift that you could give him, and at least he got to know what love was. I know he will be waiting for you at the bridge.


In loving memory of my angels who have crossed over the rainbow bridge

The rainbow has beckoned
It's calling you home
To meadows and forest
In which you may roam

My heart it grows heavy
To think you might leave
I'd be all alone then
Alone then to grieve

I know deep inside me
That you cannot stay
The pain that you're feeling
Grows more night and day

You look at me asking
In your silent way
To let you go home now
"Please let me" you say

You say there's no pain there
No fear and no hate
Just peace and well being
Once you're through the gate

You tell me you'll always
Hold me in your heart
That time and that distance
Can't keep us apart

And if I should need you
At my side you'll be
Tho I cannot see you
You'll be there with me

You promise to wait at
the rainbow for me
To wait `til I join you
Together to be

I just want to hold you
And beg you to stay
To ask please don't leave me
Alone on this day

Yet deep in my heart know
I must let you go
You must make the journey
now to the rainbow

I bow down my head then
The tears fill my eyes
I give you my blessing
My love now to fly

So fly to the rainbow
And wait there for me
Some day I will join you
Together to be

Chris Hamann
Illusion, Malcom, Isabell, Annabelle, Zach, Isis, Aly & Indy
AND Miss Emmy & Miss Chloe kitties

:rbridge: My Angels: You are always in my heart.

You've flown to the rainbow
and wait there for me
Someday I will join you
together to be

Letting go is often the hardest thing we can do but helping him like you did was the most selfless act of love you could have shown him. He got to know love in his life, even if it was for such a short time. Remember, it is the quality of life that is important, not the quantity of days he got to live.

He knows you did what you had to to make things better for him. Please find peace in knowing that he no longer hurts, he is no longer scaird or cold or hungry. And that because of you, his life was better.
Judge not until you have walked in their shoes and lived their lives. What you see online is only part of the story.

I could have missed the pain
But I'd of had to miss the dance

The soul would have no rainbow if the eyes had no tears.

<img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/crying.gif" alt="" />Oh, I am so sorry for your loss! You were the best thing that ever happened to him, he knows that you loved him while you had him and he will never forget that. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/heartpump.gif" alt="" />The good times are what they remember when they go over the bridge. You loved him and treated him the way he deserved to be treated, you are a wonderful person! <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/hug2.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/hug2.gif" alt="" /> <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/hug2.gif" alt="" />

If you want to know what a person is like, watch how he treats others.

You'll never know what the outcome is if you don't step up and try.

I'm so sorry to hear this. I didn't think I could cry more after reading about Violet. This is so sad. They were sent to you to love them. I believe God puts angels on earth not only for people but for all animals in need. Violet, Toby and all other gliders in need that cross your path may be the reason you are here. I believe we are all here for a reason.

The person that made them suffer will pay dearly. Know that.

Your babies aren't in the ground. Just a borrowed body that is disposable. They will be in your heart forever and you in theirs. Bodies die, the heart lives on with the soul. They are happily playing together now and know love because you showed them what real love is. God Bless you and many hugs and Thanks for all you do and did for them.
Keeper of Handprints on my Heart, You left your Footprints on my soul.
My precious loves that left to quickly, Peanut, Katie
Isabella, Kiwi, Bonnie and Monroe.

Spread your wings and glide free of pain,
Until the day I see you again.

God speed my precious angels. I love you. Mama.

Beth, I had to make that decision for BabyBoy, and when they're in that much pain, it IS a good thing, please don't doubt yourself on that. This way, he was able to be out of pain when he made the journey there was no way to stop anyway, instead of him going in agony. That is a GIFT from you to him in this circumstance, as much as it hurts you. I'm sorry your little boy had to leave, but he knew you loved him and cared and tried your best for him, but it was time for him to go, and he will wait for you at the bridge. <img src="/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/hug2.gif" alt="" />
