Goodbye Amber-Mae, We'll Miss You Very Dearly!

Hi Amber's blogger friends.. This is Melissa. I'm here to share some very, very sad news with you all. Amber-Mae got very sick a week ago & for the last 3 days, she went downhill very fast. She had no more strength, she could no longer stand up, she could no longer pass motion, she could no longer eat, she could no longer breath properly.. she was suffering from multi-organ failure due to her liver bleeding out inside of her. So, my family & I have decided to end her suffering last night. We invited a vet over to our home, a vet that Amber is so used to seeing for the past few years. He's a gentle, nice man. The entire family surrounded her including her son & daughter, River & Megan, her sisters Chloe, Faith & Bun. We all surrounded her while the vet helped her to go into a deep sleep. She left us peacefully exactly at 10:00 pm on the 23rd of November 2013. We are all still in tears & we all miss her so much. I kept back some of her fur just so that I can have a part of her to hold, touch, feel & smell. Her ashes will be back tomorrow. I can't wait to have her home again. I love you Amber-Mae & I miss you SO much!!!

Dear Amber-Mae,
We couldn't believe our eyes when we read your post today. We are all in tears now. My Amber-Mae, we remember how excited we were when you left your first comment on our blog before, from that on our friendship has been developed. I also remember when you had your babies, we kept watching your blog for puppies updating. We all share your joy, your winning on every competition, every awards that you had received.
Dear Amber-Mae, your loving family made the right decision to help you ending the suffering. We never forget you, good bye Amber-Mae, 'til we meet again.

Melissa,

Such sad news to read when your blog popped up on my side bar. I am heart-broken for you and know all too well that awful sense of loss since my Jakey left for the Bridge two months ago, leaving a huge hole in our hearts. I hope the wonderful memories of sweet Amber Mae will help fill that hole for you and you'll treasure the time spent together.

With love, Joan and Just Harry

Elyse and Riley said...

I am so behind, but I just wanted to let you know how terribly sad we are to hear about Amber-Mae! I remember those pictures you submitted a couple of years ago of all the dogs in that big pool, cooling off! The one picture I'm thinking of is one of my all time favorite dog pictures ever. All the pups looked so happy and like they were loving life. I know that Amber-Mae was well-loved and it's great that you were able to have a vet she was comfortable with come out to your house and help her with that final journey. Lots of love and hugs to you all!

Dearest Melissa,

We were just over at 'Our Rainbow Friends' when we saw that Amber Mae had passed. My heart hurts for you and your family. The legacy Amber Mae has left will live on in River and Megan.

God Bless........Sarah

I'm so sorry to hear you've lost Amber-Mae, Melissa. I just saw the sad news over at Honey's blog. Like Honey, Amber-Mae was a very special dog. I hope you take comfort from the knowledge that Amber-Mae lived a life of love and that she lives on in her children.

KT and Easton said...

As usual, I am very far behind on my blog visits. Was stunned to read the news about Amber-Mae. Words can't describe how one feels about their first Golden, that special light that takes you by surprise, then burns out all to soon. Suffice to say; I know exactly how you feel. You put together a beautiful video tribute, Amber-Mae would be proud. Fly free sweet girl. She has lots of distinguished Golden company at the bridge.
