Feeling a bit down tonight,we had to put our 14 yr.old lab.'down'.Poor girl,had been having problems with arthritis,in her back legs for some time.We knew this day would come,but probably not so quickly.Unfortunately,her front legs,suddenly collapsed on her,and we knew the time had come.
It was very peaceful anyway,the vet & nurse, were very kind & understanding.
Jazz had grown up with most of the grandchildren,whom she loved,and they are most upset,although I assured the younger ones, she is having the time of her life,with other dogs,in "doggie heaven"
We will miss her so much,she always sensed when I was sick,and would'nt leave my side.Jazz was pretty smart too,picking up the paper,off the lawn every morning,and bringing it to us.Same with the mail!
Sorry to "have a cry on your shoulders",will try to be a bit more upbeat next time,but for the moment, there seems to be a real empty space in the house,
Love Wendells xxxx
