well my friends , I thought I would give you , probably the last update on Miss Ali . Ali girl ate unbelievable last Sat . i thought , thought , that we may be making head way with our little girl , them on Sunday , hit and miss , then a total shut down till yesterday , I stopped in Greenfield at a pet store and brought more stuff she had not ever had , DUCK ! Lol PLUS duck jerky , umm umm then today total shut down , itís a one and done with her , will try something one time and thatís it .

I have been supplementing what she does eat with the A/D trying to add back some of her lost weight , but she is getting weak , I had to help her up from her potty trip this morning , she didnít even go out with Mr. B and I , I got her up and she walked out and just stood there and looked around , so sad to see her decline like this . 3 or 4 weeks ago , chasing Mr. B to a dog ready for to take the trip to the bridge

I had a talk with Kasia the other day ,I told her to be nice to sissy when she gets there and to take good care of her .

Thinking back to all the posts on this tread about this subject , Ken , you will know when itís time to let her go and I thought she will be ok , she donít have but 1 of the deciding factors , and I was , felt under pressure to make the right call , but our friends knew ! And gave us great advise on this , now that the time is near , I understand them posts , itís just something you need to experience, as much as I hate to say that .
U
Itís just the thought of when I leave in the morning , go out the back door and start to walk to the truck , and when I get to the gate , I turn and look back and she is always sitting there looking back at me threw the window , that will be gone .

I came home the other day and it was such a pretty site , our 2 Dobers standing at the gate waiting for me to get home . Ali girl loved us both , she would not leave my side at night or when there was a work day here in the office , and when I was gone , she laid across the misses lap for rubs

I guess thatís about it for now , unless a major miracle happens quick , but time to face the facts here , even the best efforts sometimes are just not enough , And I hate that , I know in my heart we did try everything there was to try , but I hate defeat , defeat with my little girl that depends on dad to make her feel better , and I just canít do it this time .

Thanks everybody for your help and support threw these trying times

I'm just in tears for you. I wish I could ease this burden a little for you. Lots of hugs for you in this so very difficult time, my friend.

She's had a good life with you, I know. One day, you'll be able to tell stories and smile about the fun you had together, the same way you can talk about someone who is not sitting next to you at the moment, but is just resting in another room in your house.

That'll come, but not now. Even though we know we'll have to face this the moment we get a new pup, it still hurts when it's time for them to go. No matter how long they are with us, it's never long enough.

I'm so sorry.

Ken,

I'm so sorry. I know you've given her the best life ever, and she's given you her best. Love her, spoil her, because that's what we do for our family. Prayers and hugs to all of you.

I hate these awful breaches in the circle. Some breaches are very much bigger than the rest. Zipper will meet her, too, and Zipper LOVES to run and play, so she'll help keep her busy. And Ali will be waiting for you, so never fear, you'll see her again. In the meantime, she'll be playing with all the beautiful Dober guys and gals who have gone across before her, and she'll be happy.

(Well, crap, now I'm crying again, too...) Hugs to you. I wish we could hug in person.

Aw Kenny,
We get these dogs knowing that we will outlive them but it sure doesn't make it any easier when it reaches the point where you know that time is getting short.

We said that you would know when the time arrived--and I still believe that--I'll just wish that your Ali girl can go easily in your arms.

As always, my thoughts are with you and Ali--and all my best wishes for her--and thanks for the update.

Thinking of you tonight Ken.

I know Ali can feel your love for her. She will go, when it is time, knowing she is wrapped in your love. And that ultimately is what counts.


I treasure this picture of Kip as a sort of memorial; it says something to me that my clumsy words can't quite express.



In the world that is this picture, I've told Kip to run on ahead of me. I imagine him looking back for a moment, and then turning his feet toward a special place designed just for him, wherever, whatever, that may be. I'll catch up with him sometime, I think, but until then.....

I am so sorry to read the latest update. It is such a terrible feeling to try everything and it still isn't enough. We never have them long enough. Please try and take comfort in your love for Ali and the love she has for you. My heart goes out to you in this most difficult time.

Mel, it's not often I wish I had a picture like one that someone else has--but the first time saw it I wished that I had one just like it for all of my long gone dogs...

Thanks for posting it again.

Goodness, and now here I am sitting at my desk in tears, reading and reminiscing. I agree, Bug, I would wish that photo for my own.

Mel, that photo makes me tear up. I have a couple of sort of similar photos of Simon. I'm so grateful we did a photo shoot out on the trail with him after we found out he had bone cancer. I really treasure these photos.

This one particular always makes me smile.

I treasure this picture of Kip as a sort of memorial; it says something to me that my clumsy words can't quite express.



In the world that is this picture, I've told Kip to run on ahead of me. I imagine him looking back for a moment, and then turning his feet toward a special place designed just for him, wherever, whatever, that may be. I'll catch up with him sometime, I think, but until then.....
I have thought about Melís picture since she posted it up , so many captions that could go with it , like are you sure you will be ok ?

. The always loyal Doberman , checking on you one last time !


It goes on and on , and so do the tears , for all of us

The other day , someone asked about Ali , I got one of them moments , they looked at me funny , all I could say is that you just donít understand , unless you have had a Doberman .

Thanks Mel and MC for posting up these special pictures

So very, very sorry. My heart is breaking for Ali and you and your family. They are just never with us long enough! A lifetime would not be long enough!
