I lost my dear, sweet, deeply loved dog companion yesterday. She was 10 years old and was such a happy life loving dog. Over the labor day weekend she stopped eating and soon I had to take her to the emergency room of the local pet hospital. With a blood test an sonigram they determined that she had severe liver disease and had been sick for a long time. She never complained or lost her wonderful verve for life right up until she got sick. Three days and she was gone. She did not grow old and weak or suffer for long but I was not ready for her to go. These past two days I have suffered a heart breaking loss. Three days ago she was here - happy, playful and going for a walk with me. I see her everywhere in the house waiting for me to walk down the hall or laying outside the bedroom door. Oh, I am so sad. I am trying to learn to say "Goodbye my sweet love". I know she knew she was loved everyday of her life. I have no regrets but I sure am struggling with my loss.
