Dottie is gone

She did not recover from her episode, however she did seem to be more aware of her surroundings toward the end. Greta, Cody and Oliver howled all night long while I held Dottie.

This morning she struggled to find her way in the backyard, falling down and just unable to walk. So I wrapped her in a blanket and kept her warm until the vet could put her down.

She did give me long eye contact for awhile this morning-letting me know she was ready to go.

this is the very day i dread with snuffles, when she/or i know we have to leave the other. how brave and strong she was, and you can now (with the others) grieve and mourn her loss, she would've wanted that, sweet little thing, r.i.p.

I'm so sorry I'm just now reading of Dotties passing. She was a very special girl and she will be missed.

Run free Dottie. Hugs to you!
