Zeke, our 13 yr old Chocolate Lab/Mix passed away in his favorite spot on the couch early Monday morning. Friday we found out he had lung cancer & a tumor on his spleen. He was taking fast deep breaths all weekend. Didn’t seem to be in any pain. Monday early a.m., laying in his favorite spot on the couch, we kissed him, sniffed his ears like we always do, and told him we love him. My husband laid next to him and I went to the bedroom. I said a prayer asking that if he is ready, please take him, but only if he is ready. Not 5 minutes later my husband came into the bedroom and said, “I think he’s gone.” It was so peaceful.
We would like to say a special “thank you to Joel Cheeseman”, who is a friend of my husbands, for letting us know about Faithful Companion. Joel helped bring closure next day when he brought Zeke back to us. He took his time to let us grieve, allowed us to share Zekes story yet once again, showing respect and compassion. You have made a heartbreaking time better for us, and for that we can not thank you enough.
We are already recommending Faithful Companion services and will continue to do so. Thanks again Joel!
