our beautiful Wisdom went into severe respiratory distress on Monday night. Our wonderful vet came to our home, in the snow, checked her over carefully and then gently guided us to making the decision to let her go. A look in Wisdom's eyes told me that she was ready to go - they were filled with pain, panic and a pleading for us to "do something".
She went gently, her breathing became less labored, softer and then finally stopped.
A huge life force filled our house, much larger than the small body she occupied, lifted upwards and then was gone.
Our hearts ache....
