Eva's Angel Watch Begins

It has been a busy week, full of vet appointments for the dogs and the cats too.

Tonight just as it has been the last several days, we are focused solely on our beautiful Eva.  Her appetite is practically non-existent, she's hardly eaten since Saturday, and the last two days, nothing at all. I've tried everything I can think of. Eva has become very quiet, not moving around much, sleeping soundly most of the time. She'll wake and wag her tail when one of the other dogs come near her, or we talk to her or sit with her. Eva is (thankfully) in no pain. Getting her to go outside is meant with protests, but she reluctantly does as we ask of her.

The TV has been off all evening, the lights are low. and it's very quiet and peaceful as Eva sleeps nearby. There is an ache and sadness in my heart and soul.  Eva's journey is coming to an end, as her Angel Watch has begun.


  1. I'm so sorry to hear about is a very sad time. My heart goes out to you.

  2. Eva, you know how much you are loved, and to be at home, with everyone close by, your journey is with love, and you leave sadness in their hearts. My heart is full of love and I send more on Angels' wings northwards. XXXX to you all, as you watch and wait.

  3. Hugs to you Kim. May she pass peacefully. She knows she is loved

  4. She knows she is loved and she is going in peace because of that. God bless

  5. Oh Kim, I'm so sorry to read about Eva. May her passing be peaceful. Hugs to you

  6. HUGS for Eva and you! I am glad she is with those who love her till the end.

  7. Breaks my heart to know . . .
    Thinking of Eva, and you . . . and caring . . .

    Our Snickers has changed considerably in these past weeks months .
    Hearing has vanished, her sight is altered, sleeps 90% of the time.
    She still loves to eat though and our vet reassures
    that she is not in any pain, heart still sounds strong.
    She turned 13 earlier this month.

    Sorry to go on and on about her when you
    are experiencing Eva’s last days.
    My heart aches for you . . .
    Love and Hugs!!

  8. Sweet girl. Thank you Kim for caring for her.

  9. We're so sorry to hear that Eva isn't doing very well. Our paws are crossed for her and you.

  10. The painful privilege of being there as a family companion heads off on a journey. Her trust in you ( and all the others at Golden Pines who've run ahead ) is what makes the universe sing.

  11. It's the main drawback of doing what you do.

  12. Oh Sweet Eva, we are thankful you are in a place of love as you prepare for your final journey. Sending lots of pug hugs and prayers
    Hazel, Mabel & Mom

  13. We will light a candle to help guide Eva on her way. We are so very sad to hear that her final journey has begun. We have grown to love her through your posts. Soft woos and the gentlest of hugs to Eva from all of us.

    Woos - Lightning, Misty, and Timber

  14. No words. 24 paws crossed for all of you and Eva.

  15. she has known a moment of heaven in her life with you.
    bless you Eva. sweet good girl.
    no food. and probably no water soon. but still enough strength to wag her tail to her family and friends. tears now.
    God speed darling girl. xo

  16. We are praying that Eva has a peaceful journey and she is in the care of your loving arms. Thank You.

  17. Oh Kim,,, I know you feel so sad and broken. We light a candle for Eva,, and her angels for when they take her away, Her heart is filled with love

  18. I'm so sorry, but I'm glad she's not in pain. hat means a lot.

  19. How wonderful Eva's last months have been with you and the gang to cheer her on. Now, you and the dogs are still there, keeping her company in the tranquil and calm surroundings you've provided for her. We should all be so loved and so lucky.

    Peace be with you. Hugs!

  20. Kim,
    My heart is with you and Eva and all the sweet souls at golden pines. Eva knows she is loved and continues to give it back through her tail wags. She is a fine lady and a true testament of the wonderful golden spirit.
    I choose to remember her in one of her first pictures that you shared with us playing, with her tail held high. She was so happy to be surrounded by so much love as is reflected in her sweet face even now.
    Warm hugs,
    Gus' Mom

  21. Thinking of you all, it is heartbreaking. She is beautiful.

  22. Eva knows she's been in the best place, she's been loved and she's loved you in return. Looking at her picture, you can just tell how peaceful she is. You gave her so much and she knows that. All of them do. I will be thinking of you.
