Can I hear from some dog lovers?
In May, 2012 we had to make the difficult decision to put one of our Border Collies to sleep. Today we lost her sister, Cuddles. (Our daughter was 10 when she named her.)
Cuddles had been battling heart failure for about a year and a half. It was a long haul for all of us. She was on a special diet and a lot of medication, but until just before Christmas she was comfortable and happy. Then she stopped eating. I tried everything, including homemade satin balls, treats and steak. A couple of weeks ago we all gathered to tell her goodbye, then took her to the vet, expecting to put her to sleep. When we got there she perked up, wagged her tail and ate everything he gave her.
She started refusing food again 3 days ago. This morning I took her out early to potty. She did, then just lay down on the grass and died. I wrapped her up and took her to the vet, but I am home alone for a few days and grieving. I would appreciate any happy pet stories you can share.
