I am sorry, sad news...

Just this last Thursday when I took Chloie for a check-up (she is doing fine), the Vet asked about Moonbeam. He asked if she was still eating, walking and happy in general. I replied "yes", so he stated that it was not her time.

But, in the next few days, Moonbeam all but stopped eating, was getting so weak that she could not get up and was not able to go outside for potty breaks. We would pick her up and prop her feet up under her, at times she would walk, but most of the time she would just lay down or fall down. Come Sunday, she would not even drink any water.... We had pretty much made the decision to take her in. By this time, I had been calling our different Vet's for information and their thoughts/procedures.

Kevin gave Moonbeam her usual Sunday bath as her seeping/oozing left ear would make a mess of her front paws and there was no other way to get her clean. He then found another open/oozing lesion, about the size of a quarter, on her neck. Just another HUGE problem for our little girl. These cancerous open wounds are not curable, immensely hard to keep clean and then medicated with the Neo-Predf powder. I have gone through about 5 bottles of this medicated powder.

Once at the pet hospital, we took Moonbeam directly into a room. I had brought along a blue and grey striped rug with fringe, which I called Moonbeam's "Magic Flying Carpet", for her journey. There was a soft blue blanket waiting for us there in the room. I laid the blue and grey striped "magic flying carpet" on top of the blue blanket, placed Moonbeam on the “magic carpet” and waited for the doctor to arrive. The nurse came to get Moonbeam to put a catheter in her leg and Kevin took my hand. We just sat there holding on. The doctor came in, described the process and left us alone with Moonbeam for a few last words and hugs and kisses. I opened Moonbeam's eyes (her left eye was swollen shut from the cancer) and she looked directly at me. (I had read recently that dogs are the only animal that will look you directly in the eye.) I told her that Persalina and Miss Maxine were waiting for her, along with all the other doggies, who had already passed to THE RAINBOW BRIDGE.

Many, many thanks to you all for your love, your heart's, your best wishes and your prayers for our little Moonbeam. As Cat stated "Moonbeam is still shining on, but just from a different place".

I'm so sorry you had to say goodbye, but glad that things went well and the vet and staff took good care of her and you.

When you look at the moon shining brightly in the sky tonight remember what I suggested.... she is there, always there, just shining from a different place. Always in your hearts and forever shining.

Moonbeam is at peace, no longer fighting a brave fight in a battle that cannot be won.... rest well sweet girl, rest well.

Hugs from all of us here in Oklahoma.

Moonbeam was loved and cared for until the very end, so very hard for you. I am sure the FLying Carpet ride was a good ride
She is happy and running around at the Rainbow Bridge, waiting for you

Tis another fine day to serve in and for the glory of the Corps. Every day is a holiday and every meal a feast.
