As a few of you might have known from my last thread, my dog, Portia, has been ill and refusing to eat.

I hadn't seen her as I had been at my mums but I went back to my dads on tuesday. I was distraught seeing her so restless and refusing to eat, there hasn't been one day in her life where she hasn't eaten (she didn't even eat her favourite thing ever, apple cores!) but then I slowly temped her and she ate a couple of little things on tuesday. I was really happy :)

Then she starting eating even more yesterday!! And she seemed happy, still not herself, but happy. Last night I slept on the floor with her - I must have somehow known what was going to happen... She woke up in the night and was really restless and wanted to be sick but couldn't, me and my dad were up for hours and I was crying my eyes out. In the end we couldn't do much so I made her lay down and I was cuddling her all night. In the morning she must have wandered into my dads room and just gone to sleep and gone in her sleep because my dad woke me up saying he thought she was gone, she was.

I miss my baby girl so much I don't really know what to do, but she lived to the amazing age of 15 (and she's a basset hound, and she's blind too because of an infection in her eyes a few years ago) She's been there my whole life and she's given my family so many funny times. She was always making me happy, like even when she started eating, she did it when had come back as if she was trying to make me happy because she knew I was so upset.

Anyway, here's to my amazing dog, Portia, who has been there for me throughout everything. This is the hardest thing that's ever happened to me, but I love her so much and I know she'll always be with me.

Love you pup xoxox

That's so sad - I have been there but wasn't lucky enough for my boy to go in his sleep. It's so nice that you slept with her on your last night together - I'm sure that meant alot to both of you! RIP Portia. x
