A decision!

It is with great sadness that we helped our 2nd oldest dog over the bridge today.  She was not quite 12 years old, shy by 2 months.   Over the past couple of days her health and ability to get around turned into a case of not being able to even realize where she was or who she was around.  She was frightened all the time and crying all the time.  It was too painful not to help her end her pain.  My husband is awesome, he came home early and picked her up, took her to the vet where the vet then went over her and agreed that there was something horribly wrong neurologically.  He couldn't see putting her thru multiple tests and waiting for them to return either.  She was suffering so much.  We have the BEST vet ever!  He is patient, kind, loving and so very comforting.

We will miss you Penny!  Run and be pain free!


  1. We helped Penny end her suffering over 2 weeks ago and I just couldn't bring myself to post about it. Her ashes are home, the other dogs are quieter now that she is no longer suffering in pain and crying/whimpering/whining and causing them all to be so on edge.

  2. So sorry about your dog. They really do become part of our family. Thank you for visiting my blog and commenting. I'm envious of you living near Colonial Williamsburg. A wonderful place. God bless.

  3. Thank you so much for popping in to see me and I hope you'll come back for another visit sometimes.
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  4. I'm so sorry to hear this. My heart breaks for you because I've been where you are.

  5. So sorry about your's so hard to let them go. :(
    Thanks for your comment on my blog about the sidelights I put in my shed, they let in SO much light! I had to build a little frame on the inside of the hole I cut out for the sidelight so it would be thick enough. Sheds usually have thin siding, and it was too thin to hold the window in place. I think I just used 1 x3's wasn't hard, just took a little time. :)
    Again...I'm so sorry about Penny.
