It’s been an extremely difficult 24 hours, and we have about another 24 hours of time left with Cory. I’d just like to thank the huge outpouring of support from so many of you via personal emails, Twitter, and Facebook.
We have read many of your comments to Cory so he absolutely knows how much love and support is out there for him. We have received well-wishes from across the globe, from South Africa to Sweden, the US and the UK.
All your support has really helped strengthen our family as we prepare to say goodbye for our longtime friend.
Nikki Brown, the Canine Angel has provided especially touching support through this process and I would like to extend a personal thank-you to you, Nikki.
I’d like to share an email I received from her today which was really insightful and very touching. I think it should be read by anyone going through this difficult process:
Yes I read your latest blog post and was thinking of you all through the night.
I have pointed many people to this link when they are facing the decision you are all facing.
Please read through it all, It has helped many people through the transition we call death.
What ever you, your mom and Cory choose together will be right. What ever decision you make make it with love in your heart.
I know that most pet owners who have left their animal friend to die naturally have been left with less guilty feelings after and have felt a sense of freedom and Peace.
Some pet owners cannot bear to watch their pet suffer at the end of the time and make the decision to ease their friends pain.
The above link helps you to know what the signs are when your dog is nearing death and how natural these signs are. It will help you to understand the dying process and what is happening to Cory.
The body shuts down before the mind, If you can let Cory go naturally then he will have a better transition into his next stage of his journey.
It all depends what your spiritual beliefs are, Just remember whatever decision you make will be right and please don’t attach any guilt to that decision. Feel the love for Cory and his life, This is the last miracle he has to share with you all.
And Please get everyone to say these 4 phrases to Cory. Whisper them in his ear.
I love you
I am sorry
Please forgive me
These 4 phrases clean any negativity from the soul.
I am sending Cory light and Love, he is an amazing dog. One that has touched my heart in so many ways and I thank him so dearly for the miracles he has shared with me.
Please keep me posted and pass this mail to your mom right away.
I love you all.
