R.I.P. Lizzy

Today we had to put one of our dogs to sleep. She had gotten sick and was very weak and tired. It was the humane thing to do. She was almost 7 years old. Her name was Elizabeth. But, most of the time I called her Lizzy or Lizzy Beth.

This is a picture of her (and Holden) about 5 or 6 years ago.

Rest in peace Lizzy Beth. You were a good girl.

I'm so sorry. We've had to do that with dogs in the past and while it's really the best thing to do when you love your pet, it's the hardest thing to do because you love your pet! My poodle is currently 15 years old and my heart breaks just thinking about when he's gone!

I'm sorry. What did she have, or was it old age?

She sure was pretty.

Sorry to hear about your Dog,

She had heartworms. She was going into heart failure.

The vet said it was only a matter of time before her heart failed. She was suffering. She had stopped eating and was skin and bones. She had heartworms for 3 years before they got the best of her.

Oh, Penny, I'm so sorry.

The first dog we had when I was a kid, Sam, died from heartworms. I know they're vicious... :(

Rest in peace, good girl.

Thinking of you guys, Penny.

So sorry to read about poor Lizzy. It is so hard when you loose a pet.

Oh damn, heart worms are horrible. I'm so sorry Penny.

Oh, that's sad. I'm sorry you had to put her down. That's such a difficult decision to make.
