My beautiful Christopher Eric
was diagnosed with diabetes in July of 1998. I have done everything
possible for my baby to make his life more comfortable. He knew when
it was time for his shots - he would go and sit next to the fridge
and bark if I was a minute late with his shot. In 2000 Chris lost his
sight, but his other senses picked up for it! On Tuesday May 8, 2001 I
decided that Christopherís quality of life was not what it once was and
had him put to sleep. It was the single, most hardest thing Iíve ever
had to do. But the vet at the crematorium told me that it was the last act
of love that I could do for my pumpkin pie so that made me feel a little
better. It was 2 months shy of 3 years that Chris survived with his
diabetes and the vet also told me that pets with diabetes donít usually
last that long and reassured me that I did everything I could do for him.
Now I know that he is waiting for me at the Rainbow Bridge and I will see
him again someday. But until then I know he will be protecting me forever!
