The Dog That Smiled

This is hard. I was going to post today, but it turns out that things took a turn for the worst, for my beloved Labrador, Casey.

What we believed to be arthritis, turned out to be metastatic cancer, and the poor girl couldn't come up the stairs anymore. She was a millenium dog, born in 2000, and to lose her is heartbreaking.

Here's a last pic- you can see her smiling. Goodbye my dear friend.

I am so sorry about your little girl. You gave her a wonderful life and she gave you so much in return. It's fitting that her last picture shows her smiling. Hugs and prayers to you.

What a lucky dog to have been part of your family. Even her collar says so. Pets are so much a part of our lives. So sorry.

Lorraine, I'm so sorry to hear this news. At least you know that she knew how much you love her. We should all be so lucky to know that in our own lives.

Everyone here (furry and otherwise) will say a special prayer for you, Casey, and your family.

*hugs* I'm sorry to hear of your loss, but at least you had a good ten years with her. It's never easy to lose a lived one... furry or otherwise.
