Ahhhhh.... Life

We were going to go down and spend the day with our Daughter and Granddaughter today...
... And, we're doing that, just not so much as planned.

Many years ago, a dog, Skye, came to live with us. My daughter came home, in a bad place in her life at the same time. We soon realized that they both needed each other, equally. Skye was almost five and had had an empty life as a kennel dog. Her only purpose, to pump out puppies.

You could see the distrust and near fear in her eyes. It took nearly two years for Keriann to bring her out of that... And it was wonderful to watch the change as the dogs personality blossomed for the first time in her life.

Now, today, cancer forced her to leave us.
It's so painful to say goodbye to a Friend.

It is painful to lose a pet. My condolences to your entire family. Everyone who has ever lost one knows your pain. At least she had a good life after being adopted.
