Default Goofy Rainbow bridge also

I didn't mean to take over on mayhems(RB) thread.

Goofy had been declining in health. he was losing weight had stopped eating
as much and then started filling up with fluid.

The night before his vet visit he didn't sleep well like on his side as
usual. His breathing was very heavy.
The vet examined him and guessed he probably had heart failure or some other
cancer related issue that was causing the weight loss and fluid build up.
There was no guarantee that any treatment would extend his life or work.
Because Goofy was 16 we decided to send him to the bridge rather than let
him decline more. It was a very peaceful end. I stayed with him all the way
through. Goofy didn't suffer at all at the end.

It was a loving sacrifice. Very painful to go through though, I knew it was
gonna hurt but not this much.

Thanks for your words of kindness

Matt

Yes, we know we are doing the loving thing, but it still hurts
unbelievably. I'm so sorry.

I'm so sorry, Matt! I've always enjoyed your posts about Goofy and the
cute pictures that you usually included. He will be missed. :-(

I think you did the right thing. I'm sorry, I know how hard it is. Been
there, done it. Condolences for his loss. It is never easy, although you
know you are making the right decision.
Purrs for your heart.
