In memory of my Sunshine Boy, Irie

Description: This is Irie having one of his better days. Yesterday I had to make the horrible decision to put my sweet boy down. I never realized what an empty space there would be now that he is gone. I didn't want him to suffer anymore though and so it was time. He was one of my best friends - my other Chablis is 13. Irie would have been 15 in December. Oh how I miss him so. His sweet and gentle manner, the way he slept at my feet at night and as he got older, the care that I needed to give him became such a part of my life, now he is gone - I have a huge hole in my heart for him and I look forward to being with him and Chablis when it is her time, so we can share our special moments again. I will miss you Sunshine boy. I gave him this name one day when the sun was shining brightly on his head and the beautiful brown highlights show thru the black fur he had. I love you sweet boy and will for the rest of my life.

Oh, what a wonderful face! I can tell how sweet and gentle Irie was by this picture.
I am so very sorry for your loss of this precious boy. There is nothing harder than having to make that most difficult decision. It is one I have had to make many times. We are able to do it only because of the love we have for our babies.
Please consider attending our Pet Loss Chats. We have one every night and there is so much support there.
I would love to hear more about your Sunshine Boy.
Take care, and I'll be thinking of you and sending Glow to help heal your heart.

Oh I know just how you feel. I just had to put down my 16 year old Princ. I feel the same way inside. So sorry.
