Skittles



She didn't make it. Her little kidneys gave out from infection caused by the ectopic ureter problem she was born with. I shall miss her more than I can say. 

I took these pictures earlier today as she was enjoying the sun and her yard for the last time. 

She got two hamburgers from White Castle and was surrounded by her family as she slipped away. I have no idea how I'll function without my wing girl.

The first few words popped up with the photo on my sidebar, and I had to catch my breath.

I am so very sorry for your loss, Shay. Skittles was so young. I cannot imagine how devastated you are.

Sioux said...

Shay--I know Skittles packed a lot of love and life into the time she had. Because she was your dog, she was a lucky dog.

I am so terribly, terribly sorry to read this. Poor Skittles. Poor you. She was such a young dog and should have been just coming into her prime. I am glad that she had the joy of a good life with you, no matter how brief, but my heart goes out to you for her loss. I am so sorry.

Having a dog as your friend is to know unconditional love.
