Hey guys I just wanted to let you all know that I lost my sweet Pinky this morning. During the night Monday she woke me up crying out and whimpering. She had lost all control of her bowels and was barely able to walk. I called her vet at 3 am and ended up taking her into his office at 5 am after running several tests we knew right away that she had kidney and liver failure. My family and I spent most of the day yesterday with her praying and hoping for a miracle. But sadly Pinky's condition worsened and I had to make the decision to have her PTS. It was the hardest decision I have ever had to make. But I know in my heart that Pinky was happy and she knew how much she was loved. My last and final gesture to her was hand to cheek which means kiss. She kissed me and my husband good-bye and silently drifted away. For those of you who read this and didn't know of Pinky she was deaf but even with her disability she was still an amazing smart, sweet & loving dog. Pinky was a true ambassador of the breed. My heart is broken and I am finding Pinky's passing very hard to handle. I believe strongly in God and I know all things happen for a reason but how do you explain to three heart broken children how or why God took Pinky so soon after losing Izzy? I can't stop crying even my husband needed time alone today to cry and grieve for Pinky. Most of you all know how special Pinky was to me she was a very special dog. We buried Pinky in our yard this afternoon next to Izzy. Thankfully it was a bright sun shiny day. Pinkys bells which she wore around her neck when she was a baby (used to locate her if she were to wonder off) are now hanging on my office door as a constant reminder of the love and happiness she brought into my life. Every year my husband and I make a donation to the "Tree of Life Foundation" a charity which caters to underprivileged children in our area so this year we are making the donation in Pinky's name. Pinky was dearly loved and will be greatly missed.
