Moonlight Misty

Recommended Posts

I'm sorry to have to write this...on Thursday, January 11 we had to say goodbye to our sweet Misty dog. She tried so hard right up to the end...I think she wanted to eat and get up because she knew I wanted her to. By Wednesday she was not eating any more unless I spoon fed her and only drinking a little water or the pedialyte and chicken broth I fed her with an eyedropper. After a second seizure on Wednesday evening I called my vet, only to find she was in Florida! She felt terrible, but advised me to call the emergency vet. I desperately didn't want Misty's life to end with an hour in the car to a scary clinic full of strangers, probably with no hope. I only worried that she would suffer too much if I didn't. Thank God, she came out of the seizure and I got her through the night, most of it spent curled up with her on her bed. In the morning my husband and I agreed it was time. She couldn't walk on her own that morning for the first time and refused even water and chicken broth. We took her to our own vet clinic a few minutes away--Acton Veterinary Clinic in Acton, Maine--with a vet filling in for my regular one but all of our familiar vet techs who had cared for her through all of her previous illnesses. Everyone was wonderful.The end was very peaceful, with my husband and I cuddling her and telling her what a good dog she was. I felt all the stress and tension flow out of her body and mine as well, as we were so close we felt the same emotions many times. I was surprised by the serenity I felt. The hours before were worse, and then later the grief of knowing she was gone, but helping her pass on was an amazingly peaceful experience. I knew we had done all we could and that she was tired and ready to sleep.

 

We were so lucky to have her! She had a long and wonderful life full of beach walks, travel, fun and love from friends and family. She loved car rides, running fast, her Airdog toy, chicken treats, her pashmina shawls, and her boyfriends--Hunter, Diego, Griffy, and her special pal Hayden. She found her way into many hearts with her sweet face and her queenly personality. We miss her so much! Moonlight Misty will be forever in our hearts.

Though it hurts so much now, you know you made the right decision for Misty and no houndie can ask for more from loving owners.

 

Run fast and free Misty.
