Sadly, on 8-3-07 Carmen the Pug was put to sleep. She had a lung torsion, fluid around her lungs, and probably cancer as well. We made the decision to put Carmen down rather than see or have her suffer anymore. We also decided not to have her body analized either. Too many what if's involved, and I never want to second guess the fact that we made the right choice. The surgery involved to fix her lung torsion is a very rough one, and she was so sick with infection that there is no doubt in my mind she wouldn't have made it.
We are angry, hurt, and sad by this. It was a choice I had hoped I would never have to make, but sadly I had to put her first. In the end we gave her a wonderful life, she was happy and spoiled up until the day she died. No other dog will ever fill the place in my heart that Carmen left behind. She was my favorite thing ever on this earth, and I loved her goofy head and all. I am proud that I had her as my daughter, happy that I didn't listen to anyone who said I shouldn't have given her a chance, and selfishly wish that I had just one more day with my baby. She will always live on in my mind and heart, and my only regret is that the entire world didn't get to know my special little girl.
She is now that little angel on my shoulder, I love you Boofie.
