Tomorrow, my dog will be crossing the bridge

My beautiful yorkie of 14 years, is going to be crossing the bridge tomorrow. I'm extremely inconsolable and I don't know what to do. Just two weeks ago I took her to the vet and got medication but it wasn't for the right things. She kept throwing up and not eating so we took her to a different vet yesterday. Ran some tests and see that she has a severe kidney failure... It breaks my heart to see such an energetic so weak like this, she hasn't eaten in days. She only weighs 3.12 pounds now. She can't even walk or hold her head up and I know it's time. Is there any way to make her last day any better? I wanted to feed her all of her favorite foods and walk down our old neighborhood but at her state right now, both seem unlikely.. Even if there's nothing, I would greatly, greatly appreciate any kind words. I'm so scared to have her leave me and have me leave her but keeping her any longer is selfish I know. I pray that she does not pass during the night either.. I keep thinking about the euthanasia process and I don't know what to do.

Please and thank you.....

You were there for her. That's the most important thing.

Many years ago I had a great dog that was healthy and athletic until about 14, when she declined quickly. I was a coward and my father took her to the vet to be euthanized. That act of cowardice literally haunted me for 17 years. I would have happy dreams about her several times each week and then wake up and experience the loss all over again.

We've had to euthanize three more dogs since then and made sure we were with them at the end. It doesn't make it easy, but it's the right thing to do and you'll be able to enjoy happy memories without the crushing guilt.
