Hi everyone.....
First I want to thank all of you soooo much for the thoughts, advice and kind words!  It was so comforting to read what everyone wrote!
Tues. mroning I did end up having to put Millie to sleep.  Everyone was so right.....pets will let you know when it is time....and that she did!  I had her for 14yrs.....funny to think about but I had her longer than I have had my children.  My sister ended up being able to join me.  That was very comforting because she was there with me when I brought Millie home 14yrs. ago, so it just seemed right to have her there when it was time to say goodbye!
Monday evening Millie just really took a turn for the worst....and people say that you can almost "smell death on them"...she had it.  The vet. even made a comment about that.  My vet. was so wonderful!  He was going to do a talk with me and then check Millie over before agreeing to do this....but then when I walked in and he took one look at her, smelled her, and the fact that she let him touch her (she NEVER let anyone at the vets. touch her but me)...he knew.  He said that this was the right decision!  That was comforting!!  I won't go into the intimate details....but lord knows I would!!  Her ashes are being spread in a rose garden at a pet cemetary not far from my house.  My boys want to go see it!  It has been hard for me...she was my first baby ever!  BUT, she was suffering so much, I know in my heart that this was what was best for her!  She NEVER fought a thing.....it was like she knew what was happening and she was ok with it!  I will miss her so much!

It is one of the hardest things to put a beloved pet down but as others have said, she is now running free of pain and you will see her again at rainbow bridge.

I'm so sorry for you loss.  My family had to put our 13 year old dog to sleep last summer, it's one of the hardest things to do.  My heart goes out to you and your family.  May Millie rest in peace now.
