Charley 3/2004-11/24/2014


Recommended Posts

The evil monster has taken another one of our greys. Charley developed a limp 3-4 weeks ago, but it didn't seem that bad, and it got better after she walked on it a bit, so I thought it couldn't be the thing we all fear. It didn't respond to treatment however, and the last few days it got much worse. We had an appointment with a specialist on Friday, but today she slipped and fell, and couldn't stand. My wonderful vet came over and helped me get her to the evet. The x-rays showed a fracture of the bone near the hip joint, and it was clear that the bone that broke, and the bone around her knee were both bad. Clearly oesteo :cry1 there was nothing to do but let her go.


I only got her at the beginning of this year, an almost 10 yr old bounce who was the victim of a divorce. She was such a good dog, sweet natured, happy, easy going, eager to please. She was interested in everything, liked everyone, there was just no bad to this dog. She always wanted to be where ever I was, and would come looking for me. I was so lucky to have her in my life, even if it was far too short.

:f_pink I'm so sorry you lost your sweet girl and that you didn't have more time together.


When a relationship of love is disrupted, the relationship does not cease. The love continues; therefore, the relationship continues. The work of grief is to reconcile and redeem life to a different love relationship. ~ W Scott Lineberry

Her time with you was too short, but there is no doubt Charley knew love and respect in every minute that you two were blessed to share. I am so very sorry you are missing her now. :grouphug

"It came to me that every time I lose a dog they take a piece of my heart with them. And every new dog who comes into my life, gifts me with a piece of their heart. If I live long enough, all the components of my heart will be dog, and I will become as generous and loving as they are." -- Unknown
