Sheba left us tonight

Sheba finally decided that she has had enough on this earth.
She was 17 years old!!!
She was a good dog and smart as heck. I'm sad she went, but, happy that she is no longer in pain. She had gotten where she couldn't walk anymore and I was taking her Friday to have her put down.
I'm just happy have had a dog like her!!
Goodbye Sheba! All dogs go to heaven, right? Now she can go run like she used to when she was young!!
I'm really not too upset. She lived a long and spoiled life with us, as the rest of them will also. Her life span was suppose to be 13-15, so, she pulled 2 more years out.

Awww Stacy, I'm so sorry your girl is gone. She was a greyhound, right? I had one too that was the sweetest thing. And yep, I'm sure she's in heaven.

I am so sorry TG. It is never easy to lose a loved one no matter what. I will raise my glass to Sheba tonight.

Thank you guys!! She did have a good life, though, spoiled rotten. and let me tell you, she had 17 years of eating chocolate too. I know it's suppose to be bad, but, it wasn't for her. Maybe that was the reason for her living an extra 2 years, lol.
I know, she is better where she is and I am really better than I thought I would be. I guess because I knew she was going down so quickly. By this morning, she could barely walk without help. I'm just glad that she finally let go. I couldn't stand to see her suffer until Friday.

Stacy - what a wonderful unselfish way of looking at it!

***raising my glass***

Sheba - you run, girl! You run fast!
