Loss of a friend
My daughter just had to have her precious friend, Sheba Marie, of 19 years put down.
She got her at 8 weeks old and she has been her constant companion and best friend through thick and thin, the loss of her dad 6 years ago, and the abuse of a step dad. But she was always there, willing to play, chase cats and rabbits and get her belly rubbed and her "becial treats".
Since Nancy just lost her husband 6 weeks ago to illness, this is especially hard on her. I told her that Sheba has loved her unconditionally for 19 years and that it was time to love her unconditionally and have her put down.
She couldn't walk or stand. She would fall when she tried to walk and yesterday finally started going into convulsions so Nancy called the vet and took her in a day early. It was hard to have to wait the 4 days till her appointment. She had gotten that much worse just in 2 days.
She has crossed the Rainbow Bridge into a better place where she can run and play with her dad.
God bless you Sheba! I love you.
Thought you might like to see a Utube video that my granddaughter put together for Nancy and Sheba.
