tenderly xx~*CM" 


Our hearts are breaking today on Twitter as our very dear friend @SidTheCatahoula was helped across the bridge this morning by his adoring humans (Matt and Lisa).   Yesterday afternoon/evening he was rushed to the ER vet because he collapsed.   He had been having some other health issues on and off for about a month.   The ER doctor determined it was Cancer after doing some tests.   His humans made the tough decision to help him cross the bridge because they didn't want him to suffer or go through treatments just to make them happy.   They loved him so very much.

Sid was one of my first doggie pals on Twitter.  I remember all the fun we used to have virtually playing chase on Twitter. he he - Sometimes I'd zip under his belly and tickle his tummy.   Then he'd chase me all the harder.   We had such a good time.  He is going to be sadly missed by so many of our pals.

Sid - We love you pal, and you will be missed so much.  I'll always remember the good times we shared on Twitter.  Rest In Peace dear boy.  Someday we'll meet again when I cross that bridge (M says that had not be anytime soon either).  

Lisa and Matt - You made a very loving and courageous decision this morning to spare Sid from having to endure treatments, pain, etc.  Having gone through this with 3 kitties and 1 doggie, M says she knows how heart wrenching your day has been. Hugs from M and Mario Smooches from me.  You did the right thing for Sid!

I'm so very sorry you've lost such a good friend, Mario. But that loss won't be forever.

Bet he's watchin' over you right now, thinkin' about all the fun you had together. And I bet he's thinkin' to himself that one day, in the very, very distant future, you shall all meet up again.

Purrs,
Nissy

How neat to have a friend who could make adjustments to your harness so it fits comfortably. You ought to share some of your treats with your friend.

Oh, dear, we were on the post about your harness and we must have clicked the wrong button because we ended up in these comments and we're so sorry because we would never make light of you losing a friend! Hugs, purrs and tail wags to comfort.

I was so sorry to see this on FB today. Sid was one of my first Twitter furrends and the first prize I every won at a Pawpawty was donated by Sid. TW is so glad that Lisa didn’t let Sid suffer going through treatments. His peeps were so unselfish to do what was best for him and not them. Sending comforting purrz and love to them.

We all trust our Beings to help us over The Bridge when the time is right. Its part of the bargain of living in the houses nicely.
