Sailor went to Heaven tonight Vote for this post

I am sorry to have to say that at 6pm tonight, 2 hours ago
Sailor passed away into the care of our dear God.
This was sudden and unexpected.

This morning Sailor began to pant non stop.
He would stand or sit in one place and pant.
When I went to pet him and comfort him he would stop
panting for a moment but go back to panting.
He drank water when I offered it to him but he wouldn't eat.

Finally at 4pm this afternoon I called the vet and asked
if they could see him as an emergency.
They offered to see him tonight at 5pm but I have no car
and my landlady wasn't home to give me a ride.
So they gave me an appointment Friday morning
but at 6pm my room became silent and when I turned around
I saw that Sailor had passed away.
I was shocked and heartbroken and saddened that I didn't
have a car to help him sooner.

Sailor knows I loved and still love him and I thank God
that He let me have 11 good years to love and be loved by Sailor.
And I know that Sailor is in peace in God's arms tonight and that
he and Iver have been reunited and that one day we will all be
reunited in Heaven to live together forever.

Thankfully because of Diane I have McGinnis with me
to soften the blow and share this sad moment with.
Sailor is resting peacefully on my bed and McGinnis
continues to go to him and sniff him.
McGinnis does not know how to handle what has happened.
I feel McGinnis is at much of a loss as I am which just goes to prove
how deeply our dear pets are able to feel love and loss.
Rest in peace dear Sailor, and I look forward to the day
we are all reunited with God.

David, so sorry to hear your sad news about Sailor and that McGinnis is comforting you in your time of grief as Maddie did for me when I lost Kelsi and Hannah.

Hold close all those wonderful memories of your years together.

Diana, Maddie & Izabella.

Oh David, my heart goes out to you. Sailor knew how much he was loved and he passed at home with the ones he loved. That has to be a comfort to you. We will keep you in our thoughts and prayers as you and McGinnis grieve your loss. We're here for you when you need us. Run free dear Sailor. I'm sure you were met at RB by all the TC Angels who will show you the way.

David, no words can express how heartbroken I was to hear Sailor Crossed the Bridge.  He was a special boy who will always be loved and missed by all of us here at the Terrier Club.  There is no doubt that Sailor Crossed the Bridge his way at home with you and McGinnis.  He is now one of the angels in heaven.  Our prayers go out to you and McGinnis.

                            The pets we love don't go away, they walk beside us
                     every day, unseen, unheard, but always near; still loved, still 
                             missed and very dear.  The day will come to meet again, 
                     forever in heaven, together, again!
                     
     Love Louise, Caesar and Angel Murphy

David, I am so so sorry to hear that you've lost Sailor. At least he was in the comfort of his own home with you and McGinnis there with him. There are no words to take away your pain, but you know that many of us are sharing it with you.

His passing was very similar to my Sara's and I know how you are feeling with all the what if's but you mustn't think about them, what is meant to be will be. It is good to let McGinnis sniff and say his goodbyes to Sailor and you are so right about McGinnis' grieving, they feel the pain of loss too. I am glad you have him with you so you can both comfort each other.

Fly free sweet Sailor :(
hugs, Theo and Willie

Oh David I am just so sad to see your post that Sailor has passed away. I know your heart must be so broken and your grief swells along with tears.It's so difficult when the passing comes so suddenly as it did with our Willie too,you can't possibly imagine them not at your side.Take comfort Sailor was in his favorite place...at home with you and all your love to guide him gently. 
I will light a candle for your precious Sailor tonight and be thinking of you both.

So terrible sorry for your great loss of Sailor David.
Am sorry too I am so late posting to you.
I know there are no words of comfort right now. Sailor was such a special boy.so glad you have McGinnis. I heard it from Sandy but was 2 days in the Hospital for test because I had a black-out and broke my hand by the wrist / 2 fingers.
Am home now and yesterday they gave me a new cast.
David you did your very best and I think Sailor picked his loving home to travel to the RB.
Praying for you I know how much Sailor was loved by you.G-D grant you some comfort dear friend and give you strenght to get through this difficult time.
Hugs and prayers to you and McGinnis.
Yoka,Levi,Winter and Angel Moshe at the RB.
