She was still eating, and not in pain, but was getting increasingly frustrated and just had no quality of life left. It's debatable - is it easier to lose a pet tragically in an accident? or to wait the long wait to the time appointed. Neither one is good at all.
My vet came to my house and gently put her to sleep outside by my water garden. It was peaceful, she wasn't scared, but heart wrenching to say the least.
I am so grateful for the happy times we had with her, and will miss her so much. I've been working on pictures and models of her all summer, preparing I guess.
She was the prettiest girl.
I'm working on this painting of her.
This was a fun sculpture I made at camp with paperclay.
Here she is on her last day.
My friend Mary dropped off these beautiful flowers and a card from my girlfriends.
It's my "rainbow bridge".
Some sketches on the last day.
I'm so sad, but moving on.
I have two granddogs, and that helps.
I don't blog a lot these days, thanks for reading.
