No yellow today - just a blue day.

Today we put down our border collie Annie. She has been sick since way back in July and nothing that we have done has seemed to help. Everytime I would think this is it I'm going to call the vet she would perk up - just like she did this time. He confirmed what I was thinking, she is not going to recover. We adopted her 3 years ago and it seems so strange not to have her here tonight. From day one I was her job, making sure that I wasn't making a move without her. The only time she left me was to go to the barn with Tom - she loved being in the barn and even then she would periodically come back up to see what I was doing. We walked countless miles together - it has been strange going without her these last few months. One good thing though, for the last 3 years she has had a very different life from her previous and I like to think we were meant to come along and make her happy in her final years. Back to yellow tomorrow...

I am so sorry, but good for you, making her last years haoppy and secure. I am smiling thinking of how happy she was, at the end of her life... thank you for doing that!

Oh mom, I'm crying! Poor Annie, I'm so sorry. She was so happy with you and dad. Did the vet say what was wrong with her?

Ohhhhhh! How sad! Pets are so easy to get attached to and it hurts so bad when they are gone.
