Our Sweet Doggie Ali

Our sweet doggie Ali had to be put to sleep today. Last night she started breathing shallowly and she continued this through the night. We could tell she was in pain and not doing well. She was 10-1/2 years old (pretty old for a bulldog) and had been slowing down over the last few months. Luckily Brian had the strength to take her to the vet and hold her until she passed. I didn't have the strength to go. I said my goodbye's this morning before leaving for work and gave her kisses and hugs and let her know we loved her very very much. The vet said she was likely struggling due to a failing heart from old age. It was good we took her because she was probably in a lot of pain struggling to breathe.

Ali was our little baby girl for 10 years before we got our sweet Mia. Ali was born on the same day I was baptised so she has always been my little angel. She's seen me through some rough times and been there to give me puppy kisses when I needed them. She will be terribly missed. It was so hard to come home to a house without her tonight. Peace to you my baby Ali. We love you and miss you so much.

I am so sorry to hear about your puppy, Ali. It brought a tear to my eye. I have such a soft spot for puppies and I wouldn't have been able to go either.
{Hugs} to you!
My bestest buddy was almost 15 yrs old when he passed and its sooooo hard to say bye.
You are in my thoughts!

So sorry to hear about Ali. Reading your post brought tears to my eyes. I have lost a few furry friends and each one hurt as much as the ones before.

Please try to find some peace in the precious memories of your sweet Ali.
It is so hard to loose a fur baby. Thinking of you…

Smiles! :o)
