I was afraid this might happen so before we left the house I cut up some cheddar cheese for her (her favorite) and the vet tech checked to see what they had in the lunch room, because why not spoil her now? The refrigerator had been cleaned out, so all she could find was some whipped cream! A first time for Maddie and she thought it was GREAT, cleaning the plate! They also made a paw imprint in some plaster like stuff that takes 48 hours to cure which is in a nice display box with the Rainbow Bridge Poem and place for her photo.
We stayed with her and I gave her ear rubs, belly rubs and gentle petting as she went to sleep. It was hard, but she had not been able to move around and was not able to do all the fun lab things she did before, even simple things like rolling over for belly rubs, patrolling her yard, greeting visitors, etc.
This is one of my favorite photos of her, she is very perky because I have a piece of cheese in one hand. If you look closely you can see a little bit of anticipatory drool on her right whiskers! I call it "Cheese Please"

Rest In Peace, Maddie.
I am so sorry for your loss, Mary.
I am so sorry to hear this. It's the greatest expression of love to let someone who is suffering without hope of recovery go, but you did the right thing. HUGS
I'm so sorry. I'm sure your home feels empty tonight. Praying your memories will bring you comfort and peace.
So very sorry. The decision is always hard and Dennis and I had to make it twice. My Sherlock and Zoe will be sure to greet Maddie Over Rainbow Bridge....hugs to you.
I am so sorry for your loss. Miss Maddie obviously had a great life with you and knew she was a lucky dog.
I am very sorry for your loss. It is always difficult to make that decision, having done it twice I know how difficult it was for you. God bless. Nancy
