I need to let you all know -- he's gone

R.I.P.  Ringo's Little Boy Shiloh

When your best friend looks at you like this
as if pleading with you to help him feel better-
what choice do you have?

My dear Shiloh
3/26/03 - 3/9/16

I will write more later.
Mom Kim'n Shasta

Our hearts are heavy with this sad news. We are so very sorry that Shiloh has gone to the bridge to be with so many of our beloved friends. He was SO loved and well cared for HERE but now he is running free and fast.

(We know exactly what that "look" is like. It's unmistakable. And it breaks your heart. But you have to do the right thing for your doggie.)

We hope Shiloh gets to say hello to our Miss ginger and Old Charisma over the rainbow bridge.

I've been thinking about Shiloh so much since your last post and thought I'd be better prepared for this one....but I wasn't. I'm so very sorry and I wish I could be there to give you a hug. It's never easy letting go, even when it's expected because we just keep praying for that miracle to happen. I've been there so many times too. Run free again, Shiloh.

Of course you did the right thing - that "look" says it all - but I know that the right thing sometimes hurts so very bad in that special spot in our hearts where our "furbabies" reside. Shiloh is in a beautiful place now watching over you and his sister....and sending you all the love he did when he was here.........forever and ever.

We send you hugs of comfort
Love, Sammy and Mom Pam

Madi and Mom said...

Oh Kim we are so sorry. You put Lord Shiloh's needs ahead of yours just like a devoted and loving parent would do. He was suffering and felt terrible and had lost his quality of life. Now he is pain free and I'm sure frolicking with many buddies he has been reunited with over the bridge.
Sending kitty kisses and Mom hugs to you and Shasta.
