We have some Very Sad News

Nell: We have some very sad news for you all today.

Me: Yes, we do.

Nell: Last night Poppy was taken very ill with breathing difficulties.

Me: Kev and I rushed her to the emergency vets and during the examination she collapsed twice.

Nell: The vets did a scan and found a huge tumour.

Me: As you might know Poppy had Cushing’s Disease so was already weakened.

Nell: And she had also developed a problem with her heart.

Me: The vets didn’t expect her to survive an operation and Kev and I made the hardest decision to let her go.

Nell: It was the right thing to do.

Me: We couldn’t let her suffer a moment longer.

Nell: You were both there by her side.

Me: Yes, we were.

Nell: Stroking her head and telling her you loved her.

Me: Which we do and always will.

Nell: As a family we are heartbroken and know you will be too as you are part of our family.

Me: Which is why we are sharing the news with you today.

Nell: You are very brave to be writing this at such a time.

Me: I don’t feel brave at all. Saying goodbye to our darling Poppy has broken my heart.

Nell: Mine too.

Me: Yes. Sorry.

Nell: No sorries. Not today.
