Taking Spyglass to be put down

I have reason to believe he was poisoned a few days ago, but I didn't realize how bad it was till last night. I'm taking him down to the vet down the road to end his suffering. Scribbles is so confused as to why mom is upset and brother is I the carrier all wrapped in towels.

I was all out of extra money after the move. I've been trying to get help to get him help for 48 hours. Luckily the vet down the road does some charity services.

I'm so heartbroken.

How heartbreaking for you. You have my sympathy. I am also outraged for you. Why would anyone want to do this?

He didn't even make it to the vet.

I'm going to let them take care of his body. I can't emotionally handle that part.

My heart is breaking.

I am so sorry for your loss and Scribbles. I know there has to be a special place in HELL that people who would poison an animal like that. Just remember Spyglass left memories on your heart that you will always have.

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.
When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....
