Though we only had a short time with her she was easily one of the best dogs we ever had and certainly the sweetest! A tumor had developed in her head and, as we opted for 'quality of life', she remained our steadfast and loyal pet for 13 months after her first symptoms.
I knew that when she didn't want to help with chores any longer she would be ready to leave this realm. We had made an appt. to have her put down as her pain was so great even at the highest dose the vet would give her. That morning was the first time she ever refused to go to the barn.
She was much loved by our grandkids especially Junior, who took her to obedience training for 4H and also taught her a few other things. Her loving boyfriend Buck, the Blue Heeler , was very sad as she had rejected him a few weeks before, I think it hurt too much to have him bump her unexpectedly.
We have her ashes in a prominent place and will spread them over the flower bed that she so faithfully supervised the care of. She will forever be missed...and our newly adopted pup has some very big paws to try to fill.
We are so grateful that you were willing and able to save her life, she was so worth it! I have made another 25 bamboo dishcloths for this years booth at the TC Pet Expo, I hope you do well there!
