After a year 1/2 struggle with auto immune issues....her kidneys and liver started showing signs of failure...really was hoping to make it to her 11th birthday which would have been Feb. 22, but Saturday she took a sudden turn for the worst, and this morning we made the decision....This has been our 3rd dog we have had to put down, and it sure does not get any easier...I worry about how our Aussie Riley will be by himself..he is 16 months now....and was always going to lay down by Katie....Our Lab Katie was very independent, Riley the opposite. My thought is to wait a year 1/2 before getting another dog (I know, good luck with that..)because of finances, and because trying to help our oldest through college....but we will see....spent a bit of money this last year with a lot of vet visits and medications.......She was well worth it of course, but have not even been able to save money to get another dog at this point anyway...
I will miss you so Miss Katie, can't believe you are gone..Love you forever....Run free until we met again....
Run free sweet Katie. and ((HUGS)) to you and your family Debbie
I'm so very sorry.......
my heart aches for all you who loved Katie
I'm sure your younger will be ok - tho sad - until you are all ready for a new addition
hang in there
