Since this afternoon I have been emotional drained!
This afternoon we had to say goodbye to an old friend, after 4 years. She was about 12 years old, maybe older. She had some on-going medical problems that the vet has been treating since we adopted her. This afternoon we were going to the vet for a look at another medical; but, this morning she had either s stroke or seizure. Our female Australian Shepherd (Strudel) was near the kitchen where Sedona (Husky) always slept. I sensed something was not right.
Her gums were complete white (no pink), nose, ears, head and paws were very cold. She was not getting blood flow. After complete examination and from her past medical history; doc said any surgical procedure was out of the question.
The vet said she would not have been alive the next morning, she was suffering.
We had to put her to sleep, she closed her eyes, no movement at all.
She is at peace with Our Lord and other dog Rico, who we had to put to sleep at 18 years old in December 2008
She was family.
We will get her front paw prints in a mold as well as her ashes.
This Sedona beginning this year:
This is one of the last photo in the back yard, she loved the outdoors. She laid down before taking her to the vet, she was intendning on her last sleep:
