Few Words

There will be few words in this post, it is to date the hardest blog I have ever written, although I feel there will be more. But write it I must.

As always in life our week started as normal in our little idyll, but life turned on a pin, and yesterday we brought Wiglet home from the vet for palliative care. She has a mass in her chest cavity. Operating on her was an option, but the prognosis was poor, it’s already so large it’s pressing on her heart, and there is a high likelihood there are more tumours. She is only seven.

I have written before that we believe life is a huge lesson in letting things go. We just didn’t expect this painful, hard one so soon.

So we will let her go, we won’t prolong her suffering, we will let her go, with all the love in our broken hearts.

Nothing else matters now. We are in pain.




  1. Oh Moira… I know there are no words I have that can console you and Rich but try to stay strong for Wiglet, Harley and the fur babies… they need you! Big hugs and so much love to you all ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️Xxxx

  2. Oh. Oh. She is so young. Such a shock, so very very hard for you all. There are times when being a cyberbuddy is just no good. Wish I could give you a real hug. Please accept a heartfelt cyberhug. I know you and RD will love Wiglet richly to the last moment and beyond.

    • Thank you Ellen, I can only say we are raw with pain, but trying to be normal. I accept you cyber hug with gratitude, I too wish you were here to hug me. ❤️


  3. Oh my. I heartily sympathize with you since we lost our Riva (Ridge) two weeks after she turned 7 from kidney failure. We wish we had noticed symptoms, but didn’t recall any and then it was too late. Thought the tears would never stop, she was such a wonderful dog. Now we have had her sister for almost four years. Life is far better.

    • Thank you so much for commenting, it is a comfort to hear from others. The vet told us that it started behind her breast bone and even the health check she had to move here wouldn’t have picked it up. We are in unbearable pain, I know you understand ❤️❤️


    • Thank you so much for commenting, it is a comfort to hear from others. The vet told us that it started behind her breast bone and even the medical check she had in December wouldn’t pick it up. But her we are, over a week later, and she has picked up. The vet is amazed, but we know the power of love. ❤️❤️


  4. I’m so sorry you will have to say goodbye way too soon. I know the empty feeling of sadness that there is simply nothing we can do but love them. They provide so much comfort and joy and ask for so little in return. I’m thinking of you! ❤️❤️❤️

    • I know you are my friend, thank you, it really does give comfort when people reach out. We’re treasuring every moment, but trying not to cry is so hard, we’re hiding in the garage, or crying in the shower. We have Harley to think of as well bless him, he will be lost. As will we, in fact we already are.❤️❤️

      • I still miss my golden Lily girl every day. She was always by my side, mostly begging for food because her mama loves to snack! 😉 No matter when they go, they’re gone too soon. Bernie is still a bit lost without her. He adored his big sis. 😔🤗

      • Thanks Kat, right now this all reminds me of my mum’s passing. But I still had 2 months to prepare, they are like children to us, but we took her out to the paddock today and she actually chased a ball and the cat. Love is a powerful thing. Thank you so much ❤️❤️
