Asti Spumante 3/14/08 - 8/13/15

Recommended Posts

It's taken me a bit to write this, I was not prepared for this loss. :(. Asti was only 7 and Shanti had just departed last month.

 

My precious Asti has now joined Shanti and Nala at rainbow bridge. Asti came home as my Mother's Day present. I always wanted a Australian Shepard, Merle with blue eyes. Along came miss bubbly, hence her name. Her first family was allergic to her so she came to my house. Shanti was not pleased! Asti adored Shanti. In time the feeling became mutual.

 

Asti had a love for water and our pool. She dove in every chance she got from the day we brought her home. The pool fence stayed up just to control her pool parties. :) She loved people, animals and traveling anywhere we went with us in the RV. She was one of those incredible all around dogs.

 

She blew out her knee in late May and had the harsh TPLO surgery early June. 8 weeks of confinement and healing. 3 days prior to final clearance, Asti was just "off" to me. Final X-rays showed a broken screw and bent plate. Bloodwork sent up red flags. The next two weeks became a roller coaster ride... Up then down then up then down. We administered fluids and antibiotics with little success. Sadly when I was out of state, she came crashing down in my parents care. They took her in and the worst news followed. Tests showed she was completely overrun with cancer. I could not get home quickly and I could not make her suffer. I gave the permission to let her go and God bless my parents for staying with her as she crossed over. I did not want her alone.

 

I had a dream and she was in it the other night. In the morning I got he call her ashes are in. Her visit to me letting me know she's ok. She is now back home. My heart is still broken as is my kids. We miss her terribly.

 

Until we meet again Asti, we love you!!!!

I'm so sorry for your loss of beautiful Asti and so soon after Shanti's passing. How difficult it must have been to not be there, but so fortunate that your parents could be with her. I hope her visit has brought you some peace and comfort. Rest well, Asti.

Beautiful Asti. I'm so sorry she left so quickly and on the heels of Shanti's passing. I cannot fathom how it must feel. I'm so glad you have a little one at home to help you and your boys heal. That last picture of Shanti and Asti together is just precious. My heart goes out to you and your boys.

I know my Aussie girl, Speckie, was waiting for her along with Shanti & Nala. There will be lots of grey/Aussie games played until we meet them again. I'm sorry she had to leave so soon.

I'm so sorry, for you and for your kids and your parents. Asti was such a lucky girl to be loved by so many people. I love her name, I never put Asti together with the Spumante before, that was such a great name for a wonderful gal!

I'm so incredibly sorry. You've all been through too much lately, and she was much too young to have to leave.

 

Godspeed Asti.

How heartbreaking to lose such a lovely, vital little lady, especially from afar. I lost my Polly when I couldn't be there with her, and it was horrible. But you are right, you couldn't let your precious girl suffer. I'm so sorry.
