I had a faithful dog until just before Christmas I had to put her down because she was very jealous of my first born child, she started attacking her. So when my daughter was 8 months old that was it. The vet said she was getting old and her jealous outbursts are causing her or will cause cause medical issues. So the decision was made we had to say good-bye to our dear family pet. She was like my baby growing up and about to turn 14 years old. The Vet did say she could live another 4-5 years but don't' take the chance because of the safety of the baby and the risk of causing a problem for the dog.
I stayed with her for hours after the injection was given. Drove her to the pet cemetery on my lap in a snow storm to say another good-bye.
It's been 18 years since I lost my beloved trusting friend who was like my baby. I miss her dearly~the reason for the story. I seen on one of my groups someone posted about this beautiful poem about Rainbow Bridge and I'd love to share it with all of you. (click here) Have some tissues ready!
Til this day I never got another dog but my daughter did get a kitty 8 years ago. Still I'd like to get another dog sometime in the future. When is a right time? One never knows
but in the meantime we just love the kitty......of course when shes in the mood for some lovin & attention... There's nothing like a family dog.....
