Dogs and Adoption

I lost my little dobergirl today.  When I came home yesterday, her leg was really swollen and she just couldn’t get comfortable.   She was still eating well; she’s always been food driven, but her quality of life was going downhill fast.  I took her to the vet and gave her lots of kisses while the vet slipped the needle in.

I think it’s harder, as an adoptee, to let go of those we love.   I’ve always been an animal advocate; had my own rescue group for 6 years.   Nothing hits me harder than to see a dog or cat out there on the streets, scared-hungry-alone.   In some way, conscious or not, we know what it’s like to be left.   Animals generally tend to be the safest relationship; they love without hesitation and won’t leave you willingly.

She was a great girl.  She was hypersensitive to my moods.   She never complained, even when she was in pain.  She was smart and loving.  I’ll miss her so.
