Nigel's Mum here again.

We made The Decision, and I amde the appointment for Thursday.

I am so upset. But Nigel is not going to get any better...and he jus tlooks up at me with those sad eyes. I know he is uncomfortable & I wish there was more that I can do. But all I'm doing, by giving him these meds, his prolonging this suffering.

I have been in love with Nigel since the day he was born - August 19, 1995. I tried to give him the best life - he certainly was a spoiled bully. I used to take him all over Miami - Coconut Grove, South Beach, and our old neighborhood of Coral Gables. I even took him to work a few times. (Hard to do when you're a high school teacher.)

I've dedicated websites and even created the English Bulldog Webring with his picture. That will go on forever. And, he's also the poster child for Buddies thru Bullies. The website is http://www.buddiesthrubullies.org and check out the t-shirts at http://www.cafepress.com/helpabulldog

Owning a pet can bring years of joy, but it's this decision that is the hardest part of pet ownership.

Nigel, I will always love you. You have been the best dog I have ever owned. I wish my children would have been able to play with you. You have been so sweet & obedient. You have such a personaliy - kids always loved to play with you. You were famous at the Youth Center - the kids always crowded around you...and you loved the attention.

I hope that when you cross The Rainbow Bridge, you will be able to romp & dance like you used to, and that there are tons of biscuits & "Wilsons" for you to play with. I will miss your snoring, your slobber

I love you, my sweet little bulldog.

Lucy and I are thinking of you and Nigel at this sad time. We hope he is at peace. If you haven't read it already you have to go get The Shaman Bulldog:A Love Story By:Renaldo Fischer. Its a must read especially for someone in your horrible situation. Rest in Peace Nigel. I hope you're waiting for my Lu when her time comes

My heart is breaking for you! I know how special, important and how much a part of your life Nigel is. He always will be. There are no words I can say to comfort you. Just keep thinking of the good times you've shared. The love you've shared. And how you always did what was best for Nigel so believe in your ability to do what's best for him now. No matter how much it's going to hurt. Your heart will heal in time and Nigel will live forever on in your memories.
