Ah thank you Kerry.  It's been difficult.  I thought we'd start feeling a 
little better by now but that isn't happening.  We got a lovely floral 
arrangement from the Animal Hospital on Tuesday and a touching card today from 
the Vet and all the staff with such kind messages on it and of course I started 
to cry.  I miss him so much.  I look beside me when I go to bed and he's not 
there and it just breaks my heart all over again.  Last night I was almost 
alseep and this picture of him laying on the table lifeless came to mind and I 
swear I had an anxiety attack.  We both know we did what was best for him.  He 
is no longer suffering but boy we sure are.  We don't even have any happy 
memories because he was never really well.  All we wanted to do was give him 
some joy.

  Dear Lynne
  I've been out of town and catching up on email---I am so very, very sorry to 
hear the heartbreakingly sad news of BooBoo. You and Bob must be devastated. I 
hope that knowing your little sweethheart couldn't have wished for a better and 
more caring mom and dad than you and Bob, and that he enjoyed your unstinting 
love and devotion every minute of every day he spent with you will eventually 
bring you comfort. 
  You did the most loving and kindest thing for him on Sunday when he let you 
know his time had come.
  But it's so painful, I know.
  Thinking of you, 
  much love and big hugs

  Subject: BooBoo left us

  We lost our precious baby tonight.  He developed difficulty breathing and we 
rushed him to the emergency clinic.  He was dehydrated and had just had his 
lungs aspirated Friday.  The vet recently experienced the same situation with 
his Himilayan, co-incidentally, though I sometimes think they make stuff up to 
identify with your pain.

  I held his little face in my hand and petted him as did Bob and he slipped 
away almost immediately.  I don't think I've cried this much in my life, Bob 
too.  At this moment I can't imagine ever being happy again.  Sounds stupid but 
BooBoo conveyed to me this evening it was time to go and he thanked us.  He was 
so very weak he could hardly walk but he was still purring as we pet him even 
with the damn catheter in.  We know this was best for him but the worst for us.

  Thank you all for being so very supportive.
