The Saddest of Days

Sweet, sweet Mellie is gone. She went downhill very quickly yesterday afternoon, so we called the vet, and he offered to come to the house or meet us at the office. We chose the office, mainly because of Emma and Tara. We took the three dogs out into the backyard together and gave them a chance to say goodbye, then took Mellie for her final ride in the car.

I really want to thank everyone who has been sending good wishes and healing thoughts our way. She fought the good fight, and left us with dignity.

:( I was hoping the tuna would work and she'd eat more. I am so sorry for your loss- she really was adorable and clearly well-loved.

I'm sitting at my desk (yes, I"m at work... shh) with tears running down my face like a lunatic. I was scrolling back to your old posts to read more about you and came across your first posts with 3 doggies and then went searching thru... I am SO very sorry about Mellie but it sounds like she touched many lives and led a wonderful life with you. Its been a couple of months, but I know the pain will always be there... BIG HUGS to you my new friend...
