My Milly


Recommended Posts

Milly was at the vet this morning after her squabble with Isabella. The suturing looked wonderful, and she was doing quite well. As we were walking out to the car to come home with the vet tech to assist us, Milly's right rear leg shattered when she went to get into the truck. She was taken back in and x-ray confirmed tumor engulfing the leg. No warning, no symptoms, just this sudden devastating shattering. The x-rays were horrendous. Our options were discussed and a conference was held and the decision was made due to her age and previous cancer to not put her through any more misery. She came to us in November on the spur of the moment decision, sight unseen. She made herself instantly at home. She was with us such a short time but during that time she was loved and loved us well in more ways than I could ever imagine. She was sweet and wanted nothing more than to just cuddle on the couch. She was dignified in everything she did. She was tolerant of Gus and Bella and watched them with an amused expression on her face when they would act like silly hounds. In the ten months she was with us she settled in our hearts as if she had been here forever. I am blessed to have had this wonderful senior girlie hound come into my life. She made it better. Her journey to the bridge was gentle just as she was in life. I will truly miss her.

I am so sorry for the loss of your beautiful Milly.

I do hate cancer. It is the thief who robs us, everyday, of those we love.
