She Was Almost Indestructible

Cindy Sue thought she was...and she had me convinced several times that she was.

From the rattlesnake bite, to the Great Horned owl attack, to the two coyotes, and then the rock chuck...she defied them all with her grit and courage...and a lot of expensive vet bills! (BTW, the rattlesnake and owl were prior to my blogging.)

But, Mother Nature takes her course...and old age with its ailments creeps in. CS didn't handle the PRA (progressive retina atrophy) in its later stages when she became totally blind, and then combine that with doggie Alzheimer's...she struggled.

"How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard"
Winnie the Pooh

My Man and I couldn't watch her be in a daze and confused any longer.

After she ate a special breakfast of pancakes, bacon and scrambled eggs, we took her for her final ride into town. Dr. Katy came to the rig and in moments, Cindy Sue lay comfortably in my arms...never to know pain, anxiety or blindness again.

She is now with Penny, Sandy, Cowboy, Abby, Martha Jo, Tat the Cat and many others...waiting for me at The Bridge.

Run free and happy Cindy Sue!! I love you~

Really sad, I know, but you gave her the very best life you could.

My heart goes out to you! It's never ever easy to lose our fur kids!

Thank you for telling us about Cindy Sue. I was wondering how she was doing and how she was getting on. I sure teared up for her, she was quite the dog with some incredible adventures.
My Morris is still hanging around and doing well.

Having just gone through this with my Reba I sure know how you feel. She was a good dog, and she will be missed for sure. (((hugs)))

Mrs Shoes said...

Sincere condolences.
I'm so glad we are able to gift a peaceful ending to the animals that we love.

Always hard to lose a beloved dog. I lost my dog Bear a year ago and still miss him terribly. Sorry for your loss.
