R.I.P. - Gypsy

This morning we had to have our other dog put to sleep.  She became paralyzed - we assume her arthritis finally got the best of her.  She was 13, so had a good long life.  Now she's playing with Odin.

OMG, my heart goes out to you. Lately I have been wondering about Baxter because he 'trips' sometimes when we go out for a walk. I was 'lucky' I guess with Maverick and Dolly. They went quickly, at home and we didn't have to face that decision.
BTW, I was out your way today. Farmers' Market, Canadian Tire, Timmys. I thought of you.

Oh I'm so sorry about Gypsy! I lost my Jake boy Feb 15, and arthris was a huge part of his problem. When you are ready...here is a song that tells how we feel about our precious dogs. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H17edn_RZoY

My condolences - there's not much worse than losing a loved and loving pet.

MaryAnne, warm hugs from across the ocean for you all. Our pets are very precious members of our families and are sorely missed when they leave us. Hope Odin and Gypsy are having fun together.
Hooroo, Christine

Aw, I'm so sorry, MA. The only bad thing about dogs is that they don't live as long as we do.

Oh MA, I am so sorry! What a pretty.
My thoughts are with you.

Hugs!

I'm sorry I missed saying how sorry I am a bit earlier than now when I'm reading all the blogs I've missed. You know, that I know, how very sad you must be right now.
