Well everyone, yesterday we had to help our nearly 15 year old black Labrador 'home'. She had had a really terrible couple of weeks. As soon as I made the appointment, the lovely Dr Ann Viano came for a second time this last year to help one of my girls over the bridge. She is wonderful so I will put the info up in case someone else in the tri state area of US needs someone to come to the house https://www.petdignifiedeuthanasia.com/
. We were extraordinarily lucky that in the time between when I called the doc and THAT moment, she rallied and had a really GREAT 36 hours..perky, happy and chewing her bone, which went into her grave with her. We should all be lucky enough to die in our own bed and in our own house, and not in the hospital with strangers. I would like to hope that Ellie is now with Daisy who left us earlier this year, and to the best dog ever, my Lucy. In my mind's eye, the girls are all young, and healthy and in no pain....running down the beach for the water. Rest well, Ellie-Bellie.
This is the first day in 25 years without a Labrador in the house.
