That is very nice of them for sure. You're loss will help others, I know its hard to see the light in a situation like this, only time will heal your broken heart.

We are all still thinking of you and sweet Lukka.

That's a very nice thing for your vet to do. Sounds like your vet is a good person.
I still can't believe that your pretty Lukka is gone. :sad:

I hope your health has stabalized or even better improved.

We're all thinking of you, keep your spirits up and your fond memories of your Lukka close to your heart.

What a beautiful tribute to your Lukka, she will live on through that donation....

When my Harley died, my Vet made a donation also......I think it helps to know that our Vets are actually real humans, who have emotion and understand the pain we are going through.

I cried at that. My vet did the same thing for us when Sophie died. What a wonderful gift... from HRH Missie the Poo, Duchesss Tyra and Sir Quincy.

That's really wonderful.

My vet also did that when Wolf died.

Sorry to hear about Lukka. I avoid the rainbow bridge forum because it's depressing but I just had to stop in to say I'm sorry to hear about your loss! :sad:
