You will miss your faithful pal, that is sure. Sadly for me, I think I may be writing a similar report in the not too distant future. I have thought that day was upon me a few times in the last couple of years but my Lucy, 14 in December should she make it that far, has always managed to bounce back. She has been a faithful companion on so many hill days but none for a couple of years now, and now she is going downhill fast. I don't think she will bounce back again. We are steeling ourselves too for that day. My thoughts are with you.
They're so uncomplaining it can be hard to know when the time has finally come. I'm just thankful that finding the tumour in her mouth made it more clear cut than it might have been. We'll have to go through it again with Jack who will be 13 in August. Definitely the downside of letting dogs into our hearts.
