July's Blog

Saturday, July 22, 2017

Today is Saturday, July 22, 2017. On July 3, I had to put my dog, Dusty, to sleep. She has been failing for the past couple months. She was 17 years old, blind in one eye, cataract in the other, was almost completely deaf, and had arthritis in her back. The vertebrates in her back kept going out of place, and her back legs would give out. It was a very sad day for me, I miss her so much. I would tell people, she is 17 years old and still training me. My apartment feels so empty and extra quiet now that she is gone.

She had a great life. Before my husband passed away in 2014, we took Dusty everywhere we went. She loved camping and walks at the campground. She liked feeling the wind when we went for rides in the car. She was a finicky eater, did not like haircuts, bathing, or brushing her hair. She was her own person. She was the runt of the litter, her siblings were all males, so she would raise her leg when she pee'd.

I miss her a lot.

    So sorry for your lost. My inherited Prince is 15 years old and has cataracts in both eyes plus he is a diabetic on insulin shots twice a day. Soon will have to make the decision you made. It is so hard to do.

    So sorry for your loss. I know what a difficult decision it is to put our furbabies down, but we do it because we love them. We put our Scotty dog down three years ago. I said I wasn't going to get another dog, but only lasted a few months when we adopted out Chocolate Lab, Sadie. She's been a delight and we couldn't be happier. Hang onto your happy memories of Dusty.

    I'm so sorry for your loss. She will always be in your heart. I lost my German Shepherd a year ago, and still cry every day
