Thank you all for your kind thoughts, words, and hugs. I think I am past the weeping and to the teary eyes when thinking of her. I've had many pets but Annabelle was so special. She really got me through a rough time, laying next to me during my illness when I was in bed most of the time. She was my little angel. I do picture her at Rainbow Bridge, running and playing with the other pets I've lost and waiting for me to come so we can all cross over together. It truly gets me through these days. (For anyone who wishes to tell me that animals don't have souls and don't go to heaven, please save your words. Annabelle was an angel and I believe she will be waiting for me.)
I am working on knitting rugs and blankets to take to her vet, who was truly amazing and compassionate on Friday, as well as the local shelter.
I am so sorry for you loss of Annabelle. Losing a pet, especially a comfort pet is one of the hardest things. You grieve and cry but in the midst of that celebrate fher wonderful life.
Mary, if dogs and cats aren't in heaven then God has made a mistake and He doesn't make mistakes. I believe Winnie, Tigger and Lil Bit will be waiting for me. See you when we all get there!

Mary, I am sorry to hear about Annabelle. Our pets are part of our families & it's so hard to know they have shorter lives than us. I'm sure you enriched her life as much as she did yours. Hugs to you all.
Mary, it's so sad about your Annabelle. Our fur babies are like our best friends and children rolled into one, aren't they? You did the right thing, but it doesn't make it any easier. You'll always love her and remember her. I believe our pets go to heaven, too, so I think you'll see her again and that'll be forever. God bless your heart.
