I Love My Sister by TeaPhotography I Love My Sister by TeaPhotography
Canela's Journal Tribute here: :heart:[link]

Malori, the one on top looking right at the camera, my full-bred Beagle will be 13, on October 11, 2009. We got her as a puppy to keep Canela company. But people were always Canela's favourite. And Canela was always Malori's favourite. :aww:
Can't you tell by the photo? :heart:
Malori has never known her life without Canela.

This photo was taken a couple weeks ago.
Canela was my first ever pet as an adult on my own. She was found in less than good condition roaming the streets at approx. one year old.

In the photo she was very very ill, and going fast. The reason her tongue is like that, is cause she didn't have bottom teeth to keep it in anymore. :aww:

Canela's health has been pretty poor for just over a year, but we've been trying desperately to improve it with the vet's help and especially since the very beginning of Spring when it turned for the worse.

It's been a long difficult Summer, finally in the last couple weeks, none of us could stand it any longer as things took another turn...
Saturday, Sept. 5, '09 we made a most extraordinarily difficult decision... but in our utter despair and depression, we know she is not in pain and suffering anymore.

It's just we sorely miss her, and will for so long. :sniff:
I've never had a loyal companion as long as 13.5 years before.
She was 14 years and 4 months old.
Canela Bella, May 26th, 1995 - Sept 5th 2009.

:heart:

No prob if you didn't read it the first time.

They are so sweet together. I understand your pain my Pepper kitty was put to rest just a couple weeks ago she was 12 and it is so hard to make that decision but it is usually for the best. :( :hug: It will get easier everyday but you will never forget her :hug:

:iconteaphotography:
TeaPhotography Featured By Owner Sep 9, 2009  Professional General Artist
I think they are... they always were...

And they were known as a pair. It's hard to see Malori without her Canela sister. :hmm:

Oh no, Becky, I'm sorry about Pepper kitty.
I don't know why, but it IS so hard to make that decision. sigh...

For me, it was my first experience to go through something like that in that way. My two dogs as a child, went differently and you know, my parents took care of things anyway... even though I bawled for weeks.

But this is/was my first pet as an adult on my own... and I've had for so many years, and it's the first time not only, personally going through such a loss as an adult, but also facing the decision of putting a pet to rest [even my parents didn't face that]

I know it was for the best though, and that she is better for it. It's me, and I guess that's it's selfish... heh, but yes you have to be right it gets easier with the time, but no I can't forget my baby, my loyal friend. :aww:

I really appreciate the support on this. :hug:'s

On it's own it's a great picture!

With that story, it became much more touching.

Pets enrich our lives. I love my 14 yr old cat. And if any one of my family dogs were to pass for some reason I'd probably have to call in sick at work and miss my classes for that day.

My heart goes out to you :)

Thanks. :)

I have no doubt just how much you LOVE your 14 year old cat!! :nod: :heart:

Sometimes I can't believe how much I love my cats.

[I have five. Four of them are between the ages of 1 and 3. But when we took my Grandma's cat when my Grandma had to go to an Assisted Care facility, and Katie Rose cat became a part of our family, we then also had an 11 year old cat. :aww: ]

I still have one doggie, too. :aww: SHe'll be 13 this October. :aww:

Indeed, I know what you mean about calling in sick for your family's dogs. I LOVE my parents' dog Peggy, so much. :heart:

It's just these pets, really are very specialized friends/companions.

Thank you for your wonderful comment. :heart:

I'm sorry about your dog, Tea. Its hard to lose a pet dear to you. :hug: :hug:

My sister had to make the tough decision for her rabbit in Fall 2006. He was slowly being eaten alive with maggots and she couldn't bare to see him like that.

My black cat is 15 now and we (my family) have to prepare ourselves if he passes in the next year or two. His health has been not very good for about a year as well and is slowly getting worse.

Thank you, :thanks: it IS so hard. :hmm:
Moreso than I ever imagined.
They are such special kinds of friends. :aww:

:hug:'s

Oh gosh, I'm terribly sorry to hear about your sis's rabbit, what an awful thing to go through. It is always such a heart-wrenching decision, but if there is nothing more to do to improve a situation, I guess that is the tough decision to go through. :hug:

:aww: I'm sorry about your kitty! It's hard to watch them get worse. Love him extra if possible every single day he is still with you! :D Lots of love, attention, scritchen is some of the BEST medicine there is! :)

I have one doggie still and five cats.
I try to be the best pet-mom I can. We, pet-lovers can relate, can't we.

What's your black cat's name?

:icondauntlessshadow:
DauntlessShadow Featured By Owner Sep 9, 2009
Your welcome. It is hard.

*nods* Yes. She thinks its her fault even though it isn't. She still blames herself. :hug: I never really liked her rabbit cause he killed mine (They were both male and we separated them though mine would never hurt a fly) But once I realized he was gone, I missed him. I didn't think I would since he killed mine 2 years earlier. It made me realize how much time I missed with him as I let anger and hurt let me ignore him most of the time.

Yeah. Its kinda hard because I have another cat. He gets jealous since the black cat is the family cat and he's mine technically. He gets mad at me but then he realizes he can't stay mad at me too long. He's kind of protective of me as well so if I am gone for over a couple of days he's mad at me for leaving his sight and then is velco on me for what seems forever. :XD: But I pay as much attention I can. We've had him ever since I was 1-2 years old.

My sister has a leopard gecko now. And I have my 2 cats. :)

His name is Sillyboy :)

But during October we don't let him out at night since he's a full black cat and a sign of Witch craft and stuff with Wicca. Its also dangerous for Siamese cats and cats in general to be out. Its hard since we live on a busy road.

Oh no, my gosh, I'm sorry for your loss, too, and I apologize if I didn't realize it sooner if you expressed it here on dA. :( I've had such a challenging Summer for this and many reasons...

It's such an incredible and painful loss to go through.
:sniff:

Canela was in my life for soooooooooo long, and I will forever be blessed because of this. :nod:

Even though we finally had to choose such a traumatic experience as to take her to the vet for that... decision,

She was able to die in my arms as well... I felt her go.

sigh...

You've always been quite supportive, and even now.

Thank you. :thanks: :hug:
