Tonight, I let the veterinarian lay Bucky to rest.  I know that he was ready, but I wish I could have had a little more time with him.  It was quick and painless and I stayed with him.  I wish I had cut some fur from him and brought it home with me, but I will have his remains in 10 days or so.

Thank you everyone.  It helps being home with the little ones.

I cried all the way home, and still periodically as I go about my normal night.  Of course, instead of my picture thread or sickness thread, I am here. 

Life moves on and Bucky's memories will be bittersweet soon, instead of so raw, I know.  I'm giving myself permission to enjoy my tears, I truly have a reason to cry.

OMG, my heart just about leaped right out of my mouth when I saw your title.  I've been having a couple busy weeks and haven't been around much.  I'm in absolute disbelief.  Absolute disbelief.

Merrihart, I'm just at a total loss for words.  I cannot tell you how sad I am to read this.  I'm just in utter shock.

I'm sending you and your babies much tender warmth.  I'm so sorry and sad.   Cry

Merrihart,

I'm so, so sorry that Bucky's time came to leave you. He is well now and enjoying himself at the Bridge with all of those angels who have left us. Sending many hugs to all of those who knew and loved him.

Hugs

I am so sorry for your loss. I had hoped you'd be able to have more time with your precious Bucky. Let the tears come as they will, it is not easy to let your friend go. I hope the memories of your time with Bucky can ease your pain in time.

Today, I ordered a cremation necklace, a lovely silver and black steel piece with a paw print in the center, engraved with his name on the back.  I like the idea of being able to keep him near me, even though it's only a small piece of him.

I'm still crying, but I can function, I think.  I'm at work anyway, and praying for an absolute dead day.  It's raining, which suits me fine.
