This just sucks....

Oh mercy... I don't even have much to say today because we're just heart broken in the Vincent house.

Our girl is nearing the end...

Yesterday, I got home from work & she was laying in between the patio doors & the enclosed room - laying right over the medal bar.  Well, that can't be comfortable.

So go to lift her up & she's just not acting right.  When you go down to lift her up, she's like a small child - she'll help lean into your arms or raise herself up so you can get underneath of her.  Not this time.

I took her in the yard & she just laid right now. I didn't think anything of it.


I went & got my computer so I could do my work out outside & still be near her.  I'm working out & see her trying to get up, so I run over to help her... & she couldn't stand up.  Oh no... no no no no no no...

Ricky gets home & tries to get her to stand on her own... she can't do it.

We put a towel underneath of her & try to help her walk & we noticed her back leg wasn't working right either.  We don't know if she tripped over that medal piece in the patio door & hurt her back leg, or even her hip... but she can't stand now... much less walk.

Ricky said he just wanted to be alone with her for awhile...

He laid in the front yard with her & she put her head on his chest & fell asleep. 

oh the feels....

We decided it was time to take her to the vet.

We load her up, take her to the park, which we did for Buffy... & she just got out of the car & laid - couldn't even stand there.

We hug & kiss her & put her back in the car & head to the vets...

& when we get there, Ricky puts her in the grass .... & then she stands up... even squats & pees!!!!! 

Where did this come from?

Ricky looked at me & said he couldn't go through with it today... not after she just did that. 

I didn't push Ricky either way.  He has to be 1000% sure of the decision that is being made to let her go, so we picked her back up & took her back home.

We covered her bed in puppy pads in case she needed to potty & couldn't get up, which is funny though because Ricky & I were up with her all night long.... hello iced coffee, my friend...

& Sydney loves TV & she barks at any animal on TV or anyone that runs or moves really fast.  So Ricky left the TV on football... a screen full of running men.  She barked in happiness all night long...

Today, we'll see what it holds.  If her back legs are better... if she can't move at all...

we just know this is nearing the end...

& it all sucks...

sorry to be so blunt.. no other words for it...


  1. This is never easy.
    Thinking of you all today.
    Your Friend, m.

  2. I don't even have the words to say. My heart just melted and I began to cry. I'm so sorry this is happening. Please know we're praying alot and sending you lots of love and hugs. Xxxx

  3. I am so sorry. Still praying for you all.

  4. ugh. I am hurting with you. The pictures of Ricky just make me cry. I am praying that God will give you peace at the right moment. And as I look over at my old girl, I will be hugging her a lot more today.

  5. Oh, friend. I'm sorry to hear this. Hugs to you and Ricky....

  6. this hurts my heart so bad. I'm so sorry.

  7. :( I'm so sorry. I can only imagine how hard this is. Prayers and hugs for you all!

  8. Oh Rebecca. How I am praying for you ALL today. That picture of him laying in the yard with her, precious to say the least. So so sorry you are going through this.

  9. I'm so sorry - this brought me to tears!! The picture of her sleeping on Ricky is just amazing! Thinking of you...

  10. Oh goodness I'm so sorry/happy? What a horrible thing to have to deal with. Praying for you all...


  11. I'm sitting here in tears right now after reading your post. Just breaks my heart so much. I am praying hard for you and Ricky and for that sweet girl of yours. My heart hurts so deeply. May God bring y'all peace and comfort during this most difficult and bittersweet time. Hugs, sweet friend.

  12. Oh, does it ever suck. They have trusted us all their lives and they still look at us with trust at the end. Every pet takes a part of our hearts with them when they leave but they leave part of theirs with us.

    Genesis 9:5 says "And for your lifeblood I will surely demand an accounting. I will demand an accounting from every animal. And from each man, too, I will demand an accounting for the life of his fellow man."

    I take that to mean our pets will be in the afterlife.

    Thoughts and prayers are with you.

  13. How sad for you guys!! The 'not knowing' when would be so hard. Praying for you and Ricky!

  14. There is nothing that I, a stranger to you, can say that will help ease the heartache that comes with this. I sit here remembering the four-legged friends my husband and I had to help over the Rainbow Bridge and it sucks. You're right - it just. plain. sucks. Lifting you and your husband up in prayer right now.

  15. oh honey - i am so sorry. wish there was something i could do or say. big hugs xo

  16. My vet said that she had a patient's owner that said his dog did that about 5 times: Every time he would get ready to take her in, she would perk up. My heart goes out to you; we're going to be dealing with that very soon, too.

  17. This is so sad when they can't walk or stand but she must be telling you she's not quite ready to go yet when she got up and even peed at the vet's. Just enjoy her for as long as you can and spend as much time with her as possible during these last days.

  18. Ugh, I am SO sorry, it really does suck and there's no other words for it. I'm feeling for you and your husband.

  19. Oh sweet friend. My heart is breaking for you and Ricky. That photo of him laying with her in the front yard. Tears. I am praying for comfort and sending love and hugs your way. xoxo ♥
