Dear all, and especially Mystic,
All was going well with Surry up until last week, when he developed a bowel infection. Treatment with both medicine and supplements helped him, and he was back with us from the vet last Thursday feeling an awful lot better. Yesterday evening he took a turn for the worse, becoming lethargic and short of breath. During the night he went to the vet again, where X-ray showed a terrible spread of the lymphoma compromising all the organs in the thorax. Therapy was given, but this morning he didn't improve at all, and had no energy left, almost struggling to breathe. I raced to him during the night, and spent last night with him. This morning my sister joined Surry, my parents and me to say our goodbyes to our tail-wagging angel. My father and me took him to the vet, who gave him anesthesia in the back of the car to make him fall asleep, which he did with his head in my hands and my fathers arms around him. Now that he was no longer feeling anything from the disease, we took him inside the hospital on a stretcher. Peacefully asleep he took his last breath before the second injection was prepared by the vet. Surry died in peace, with us there all the way to support and comfort him, while I was stroking his fur. He was on this earth a week short of seven incredible years, and we were incredibly blessed to have him share his life with us.
Almost until the last moment he was happy, running around and playing. Dear Mystic, your love has helped to keep him as healthy and happy as he was: nobody who didn't know him would even have suspected he was ill at all. Thank you more than I can express, and thank you to all the loving family members who heard about him and held him in their thoughts and prayers.
I'm sure he had a wise and beautiful soul, which lives on in another place, wherever that is. There are two things I am praying for: that he is with our first dog, Bart, playing around healthy and strong, and that we will meet him again somehow.
2012 started with incredible sadness for us, because we see no difference between true animal love and true human love. Changes are coming, but this one hurts more than I can tell.
Loss will be a part of the life in this dimension, and I am sure everyone deals with this at some point in their lives. If you do, I guess the knowledge that the sadness is caused by the love you experienced before should be a comfort, but at this moment crying and hugging is all we do.
I wish for all of you to experience the love we have felt with Surry in your own lives. May this year end with a coming together of all souls in nothing but love and laughter, with rejoining lost loved ones (including animals!) and an end to injustice and pain for all.
So sorry to hear this news, Gyrofoam. I know how much it hurts to lose such a friend.
When you reach the 5th D you will see Surry again or if you wish to have him sooner then now buy a new born puppy that comes to you when you call the puppy mentally by the name Surry.Life and creation always continue dear Gryoam.He came to visit me and I knew he must not be here on Earth .He is close to you okay he just could not continue in that body .Animals we love will be with us they are part of our life experience.Love and healing to your family .Gyrofoam you will have a dream of Surry when he has been born follow your intuition or you will hear news of some puppies that are ready to leave their mom.
Love and Light Mystic
P,S. He loves all your family very much
I am very sorry for your loss, Gyro, for you and your family. I have lost several pets who were just like people to me. You're right, there is no difference between animal love and human love. The connection me and my kids have had over the years is priceless with our pets. These animals have each taught us what true unconditional love is really all about and we are better humans because of this. So continue to cry and continue to hug. You must feel to truly heal. No doubt Surry is watching over you and your family right now, and with Bart! You will see them both again. I truly believe this with all our animals. Nothing happens by accident. Surry was meant to be a part of your family. And when another pooch beckons your call, you will 'know' which pooch is the one to be a part of your family again. One way or another, each of our 'Surrys' all live on. The imprint they leave can never be forgotten.
P.S. Watch the movie 'Marley and Me'. Priceless.

Thank you for all your responses and love. I'm glad he was able to be with you Mystic, for you were there for him when he needed help.
In time there will be a dog in our family again, and it will be a flatcoated retriever for sure. If it is his will to go through another life as a black, long-haired bundle of love enjoying himself, loving and being loved, we will be waiting for him as he is more welcome than I can describe. If it isn't, seeing him (and Bart!) again in better times is something we look forward to with love in our hearts. Mystic, if you ever are in contact with him again please tell him we love him so much, and we are eternally grateful for the love we received from him.
I guess love causing sadness is the ultimate example of duality. Soon this will be over, for only love will prevail. In the mean time, enjoy the love in all your lives, whether it be from humans or animals.
Thank you all again.
He loves you to Gryrofoam and your family that is why Surry and Bart wishes to return to your family .One pup for you and one for your mom and dad .Lovily isn't it love and light to your whole family .When we go forward you will see all the wonders unfold .Please remember we are all Creator's what do you wish to create
Love and Light Mystic
Thank you Mystic. At the moment I would not consider having a dog live with me, since I'm single and live on a 4th floor appartment, working five days a week, which would mean he could never have the exercise and outdoor time he would need and long for.
Frankly, for a while I thought Bart and Surry were the same soul/being? If circumstances for me change I would love to live with either of them, but at the moment it would not be fair. In reality, I need to make some extra money to help my parents get a puppy, which I'm sure will happen soon enough.
What I want to create is freedom, harmony with nature and love. A small (or big) organic permaculture farm, where there would be ample room and enjoyment for a dog of course. Maybe this will happen sooner than I think.
Today my parents even received a personal letter from one of the vet's assistants, wishing them all the best in these hard times. She said that even the people there were quite shocked and sad to hear that Surry is no longer on this earth with us. There is nobody who doesn't miss him.
Let this year be the start of some wonderful changes...............
