RIP 862 aka 'Curly'

My beautiful girl was pts this afternoon. After initially picking up, although not getting up, she got a lot worse over the last couple of days and we couldn't get any weight on her at all

I've spent many hours with her over the last few weeks and will miss her...sleep well my darling...

Oh Kate, I am so sorry. You know, I know how you feel.
It would have been a hard decision to make, especially after all the time and effort you have given her.

Re: RIP 862 aka 'Curly'

I wondered how she was doing.
Kate, she may have struggled all winter and that would have been stressful for you.
Ultimately we usually have to make those decisions for our four legged friends.
And the decision should be on what is best for the animal, not our own needs.
Its always hard but also its for the best

Thank you all. It's nice to know there are people out there who understand that she's not 'just a goat'...

Re: RIP 862 aka 'Curly'

Kate, you've been through such a lot lately. Really sorry to hear about your special Curly - some of our animal friends/babies just rise above the rest and one gets so bonded to them, they feel like our children. Very hard to say goodbye, especially when we've worked so hard and cared so much about making them better - but they never leave the safety of your memory and heart. Thinking of you.
Mich.

I'm so sorry to hear that Kate, it is so hard losing them and I've been reading your other drama's so it would be the last thing you need. Big hugs
