Sad Day

Hi Everypup, kitty and hammie,

Today is a very sad day. Becky, the one non-working dog here has not been feeling well lately. Mom took her to the V-E-T this morning and was told that she had extensive cancer. Surgery would not give her more than a month or so. Mom decided that she had to love Becky enough to let her go. Becky has donned her silver harness and is running free and healthy North of the Rainbow Bridge.
She was almost 14 years old. These pictures of her were taken during the
Goodie Exchange last summer. She was
a very shy dog, but loved Mom and
Auntie Kat very much.
Please say a little prayer or light a candle for her safe journey.
She will be missed.

Sad howls,

Skye

Not more sadness today ;-(


I'm sure Becky has found Xander who recently khrossed (he'll be on my blog Saturday) -

We know this is the greatest gift our hoomans khan give us - letting us go when the pain is more than we should have to endure!

Hugz&Khysses,
Khyra

I'm so sorry for your loss. I had to let go of my senior Husky last August and know how it feels. I agree with Khyra; being able to let them go in dignity before the pain is too much too endure, is the greatest gift we can give them.

So sorry to hear about Becky - 14 years is a long life, too bad we can't keep them forever. We have one we may have to let go soon too.

Khyra sent us to say hello but we notice you have us listed as a blog you follow. We lived in Connecticut for about 10 years, South Windsor, now in Kansas.

Good thoughts headed your way.
