Rainbow Vegetables ‘en Cocotte’; a last bit on Sedi, the update — 7 Comments

  1. Oh, the heartbreak of losing a beloved pet, the sadness/stress of getting them into the car for the last ride – all of that is still familiar even after many years. So sweet that she tried to hold back her bite, too. She was lucky to have you and vice versa.
    The trim is beautiful, the ceilings are beautiful, the whole house will be a showpiece (most of it probably already is!)
    And that veggie concoction – I’m going to make that soonest. Just sounds wonderful.

  2. This post made me cry. I haven’t had much experience, if any, with the “putting pets to sleep” side of pet ownership. I’m not a dog person but I know they are very, very special to people. You did the right thing though…sniff.

  3. Katie,
    I don’t know if I’ll have the strength when it comes time for my baby Jolie the cat. I know I didn’t for her predecessor, Newman. My wife had to take him into the vet; I couldn’t be there.
    House is shaping up. Isn’t it amazing that now you have radiant heat, just when it’s getting warmer. 🙂
    Best wishes,

  4. Katie – this post just about made me cry. Like brassfrog, if the day comes when I have to let go of my beloved cat Lily…I will take strength from this post. Thank you.
    House is looking so great….as is your lovely en cocotte!
    I am sure Sedi is prancing in the heavens, grateful for the love and care you both gave her 🙂

  5. Oh, how sad. When my husband worked as a vet many moons ago, there were people who just kept their poor, suffering pets alive for who knows what reasons and they never understood how much the poor animal was suffering. Sometimes it is just best. How sad. Your renovations are going along swimmingly and that vegetable cocotte is perfect! I hope it made you all feel better!

  6. So much heart break in your blog, Katie . I just love my dogs and always know they are on borrowed time after they turn about 10. My love to you and all my thoughts.

  7. Zoomie, the shortest and longest car ride ever!
    Betty, it’s hard with any pet… the tough part of being a pet owner. The vet was very kind, though.
    brassfrog, Sedi was much harder on mon mari, she followed him everywhere in her better days…
    Ina, it’s hard – but the eleven years was all worth it.
    Jamie, I’ve seen that, too – it’s just so much harder when it’s your own. Tough taking one’s own advice LOL
    manningroad, 10 is a tough doggie birthday – for the big ones and their humans!
