View Full Version : Smudgy has left for the bridge

29-09-2005, 02:28 AM
About 30 minutes ago my beautiful Smudgy left me to go and play with Duke over the rainbow bridge.

I came home from work yesterday to find him looking worse for the wear. As the night went on he gradually got worse. Took him to the emergency vet only to be told he has an inoperable stomach tumour and the kindest thing would be to pts.

As I was on my own, O/H works nights,and had driven for 30 mins to get to the vets, I wanted to take him to my own vets tomorrow so my O/H could be with me. The vet gave him a mild sedative and a pain killer. I got home at 12:40 and he passed away at 1:15, in my arms with Treacle close by. I know it was selfish of me but I couldn't bear the thought of him passing over in a place he didn't know.

As I write this he's safe in my arms until I have stopped crying and Treacle stops licking him.

Play well, play safe and look down upon those who have cherished you and remember us and the piece of our heart you have taken with you.

Rest in Peace Smudge (est May 2002 to Sept 2005)

I just can't believe my little Smudgey has left us, At least the memories I have are of him biting me everyday but also getting cuddles everyday. He was definately a small bun with a big personality. He will definately be missed by me and David.
You should have phoned me and I would have come with you as I think you probably went to my Vets (not that that matters) It is something that isn't very nice to find out on your own.
Take care and love and hugs to Treacle. I can now just picture Smudge thinking he is now brave enough to chase Marmalade instead of the other way round
Lots of Love
Smudge may have gone but I was so glad I had the chance to meet & look after him while you were on holiday

I have just buried him in the garden, under Treacle's favourite spot for sunbathing. I was holding up well as I dug the hole, but what cracked me up and started me crying again was when Harry cam to help dig the hole, then he lied down at the side of the hole while I finished digging. I suppose it was his way of saying goodbye too.

At least when I see Treacle lying down in the garden I know she will be forever close to her little Smudgy.

Poor little Smudgey, I am so sorry but he died in your arms with Treacle licking him so had had just peacefully gone to sleep and will have this memory of you. He is a very beautiful bun.
