So very sorry for your loss. In the past 5 years I've had to put two geriatric doggies down, and many tears were shed. Well, on occasion, tears are still shed.

Thank you all for the kind words. That little girl certainly had many friends that loved her dearly. You guys fed her well. Whoever put up the 40 clove crock pot chicken recipe. Thank you. She loved that! Our butcher offered a spot on his land for her final resting place. As he put it she's always welcome here.

It was rough on all of us watching her go. The longest 6 hours of my life! We were told after the first seizure she was gone. Felt nothing. We were hoping that when she went that it would happen in her own home. It was. She was in her bed listening to all the guys talk about cigars. Enjoying the smell of them.

When it happened, we tried like hell to keep her calm. It took all 3 of them to move her around keep her safe as possible while we watched the clock to get her in to the emergency vet.

Were thankful that we had her and her sweet unconditional love for 15 years. She might have been an abused shelter dog when we adopted her. With love from all of us, you never would have known that to meet her.

Were having her cremated, picked out the same box that we did for our Shepard. The girls ashes will be spread in their special spot. They loved that particular flower bed. Especially Hannah. Those were her flowers.

Thank you all again for all your extremely helpful advice. This is who you all helped. Thought you might like to see.

My new couch. Promise NOT to eat this one Heh, She looks like she was contemplating something wicked.



Psyched you out! Didn't I Mom?!



Quick kiss from her brother. They knew I was making them dinner.



Enjoying the view of her flower bed.

I'm faced with the decision to bring a dog in to the vet and letting her go. I made the decision for the last two to go naturally--but this one is having problems breathing--she was treated for hw. I am not happy about this--the heat is hard on her.And I don't know if I can do another "natural" death. It is time--but her time is not today--she could get through the summer and I am willing to take her there...but her breathing drives me crazy.

Hard choices.

What is "hw"?

Yup--hw is heartworm. She came up as an 'unadoptable' rescue from North Carolina in 2004, treated in 2003. She's about 12, which is old for a Saint.

Is she in pain? Can she move around, go outside? Sometimes it comes down to quality of life. Poor baby, it's always a hard decision.
