Forrest 6/8/2003-27/4/2016

We would all like to thank evfurry for their outpouring of love and support over this past week.

 

DSC_0182

We are all missing our Forrest so very much and are trying to adjust to a life without him.

Mum is trying to get to thank evfurry personally..she gets so far and well..she starts leaking from the eyes again..she has given up on tissues and handerchiefs and has decided tea towels are the only thing that is big enough.

We do not want you all to be upset…we have enough sad here to go around.

We want to say a few things if we may on our last week with Forrest.

He had a Barkit list..things he was normally not allowed to do..Mum and Dad wanted to make sure he had a great week..each moment with an anipal is precious..this time even more so.

We have some fun pictures which when Mums eyeballs stop dripping she may be able to post!

Forrest had family come from many miles to spend time with him and say farewell..so this started on Friday and went through until Monday.

So much love so much fun and lot’s of spoiling.

There were a lot of tears and the whole week was very emotional for Mum and Dad and of course us.

The day Forrest got his wings was about the hardest a day can be.

We went for a big morning walk..he found an ancient bone and had a great chew..he ate roo poo..he had a lovely brekky..and the day was beautiful..

Before  Dr Mark arrived i said my goodbyes..i went in to Mum and Dads room and i waited.

Mum was trying to be brave..she really was..but leading Forrest away from me hurt her heart.

Mum and Dad went outside with Forrest..the sun was shining and they played with him..gently as his neck was tender even with the tramadol..he had fun..he barked he smiled..Dr Mark and Nurse Beth arrived..Mum felt sick..Dad felt sick..but they stayed calm.

Forrest was greeted by Dr Mark and Beth and they sat and chatted and watched Forrest .

Forrest was given a dose of something just to calm him down a bit and it did not stop Forrest being Forrest..so he was given another dose..then his leg was shaved and he had the catheter put in..all this time Mum was giving him fresh salmon and telling him what a good boy he was..Dad too..everyone was patting him and telling him he was a good boy.

When the drugs took affect our Forrest gently slipped away..on the grass he loved in the sunshine..with the warm breeze and sound of the birds..

He  got his angel wings..gently..in no pain and surrounded by love.

Mum looked at Dr Mark..she patted his leg he was clearly upset as was Beth.

Dr Mark told Mum and Dad that Forrest was a lucky boy to have found them.

Mum and Dad broke their hearts.. right there in the sunshine with a warm breeze blowing and on the green grass.

Dr Mark and Beth left Mum and Dad to be with Forrest..for the first time in 12 years Mum got to lie along him and hold him tightly..

Dr Mark came back with Beth and Dad went and got me..he bought me out and i barked and i then went and sniffed Forrest..he smelled different..he smelled free and whole and like perfection..he was my friend and brother but he was now an angel also.

Mum bought me inside and we stayed in and Mum cried and cried..Dad and Dr Mark talked and then Dad came in and we all stayed close and cried.

Forrest will be home soon..he is being cared for by people who help anipals become angel dust..he is being treated with great respect and we cannot thank Dr Mark enough for his compassion and love..it’s a job that must tear at your heart.

Forrest will always be in our hearts..and i am missing him very much..but we are all looking out for each other as best we can..one step at a time..

Ann Adamus from Zoolatry made us a beautiful badge for Forrest and we cannot thank her enough.

 

Forrest

Forrest loved this spot at Cairn Curran and sadly could not go there for his Barkit list as there has been a blue-green algae problem..so he will be so very happy with this lovely badge.

Again thankyou so much..we will personally visit you all when Mum has got herself less watery..we love you all and hold you close at this time..

Much love and paw pats Doc xxxx

  1. Thank you for sharing Forrest’s last day and hours with us…..we knew it would be full of love and heart-achingly beautiful and indeed it was. We know life goes on but so much differently than before we lose a bit of our heart. You couldn’t have made things any more wonderful for dear Forrest than you did – not just the last few days before he left for the Bridge but for his entire 12 years of life with you. He was blessed – you were blessed – we all were blessed who knew him. We love you all – and always will.

    FOREVER FORREST
    Love, Sammy and Mom Pam

  8. OMC our eyes are all leaky. Forrest was so lucky to have such a loving family. You gave him a special life and a wonderful barkit list weekend….and then you gave him the hardest and most unselfish gift of all…..freedom from pain. We know he will be always with you even though he has his wings now.

  15. I am awful at saying the right thing……….I want to thank you for sharing Forrest so unselfishly with all of us. The pain is horrific, that I know. You gave him a beautiful life, as he did for you. I wish we weren’t so darned broke, I would love to send presents and letters (I am awful about writing letters, who am I kidding?) the way others do. Can’t afford it right now, I feel awful that I can’t. Please know that if you ever need an ear, a virtual hug and if you need to scream…….I am just a message away.
