Hi Daisy's Diary
This is for my sweet precious angel.
Dec 22 / 03 I saw you in 2 photos and my heart cried out for you. You were at the SPCA in Yarmouth NS. I contacted them right away and did the adoption process. Sadly I could not get you until the 27th of Dec. It killed me to wait so long.
Finally the morning came and at 4 am we set out for the 3 hour drive to get you. I was excited, scared and so many other feelings but I knew you would be coming home with me no matter what.
When I finally met you, I just knew you were my heart. Yes you acted like a mean dog but I saw the scared dog inside. I told you that you will be forever safe and loved from that moment on.
Over the last years we have done so many things together. I have cherished every one of them. You made me see things in a whole different light. Like the first time you saw a chinchilla or the first time you saw a horse, kittens. You loved all the small creatures and tried to be momma to them all.
Sadly the end of August you were diagnosed with OSTEOSARCOMA in her back left leg. We did consider ampuatation but there was to many things against it. So we did everything else we could to keep you as long as possible with quaility of life. We were told that you MAY have 4 months. The cancer grew everyday and then got infected. I asked if you can hang on until after Christmas and your birthday. I told you I understood if you couldn't. Bless your heart, you stayed.
Jan 6th / 10 you got really bad. The infection got worse and split the skin. Then at suppertime, your leg exploded. Sadly, we knew that it was time. Your dad rushed home to go with us to the vet. I told you from the first day of this that you would not go alone even if you decided to go in your sleep.
We brought you in and you had to get weighed. In 2 weeks you lost 10 more lbs. In the quiet room we took you and they had a beautiful soft bed for you. Just like sitting on a cloud. We asked you to lay down and you did. I laid beside you with you in my arms. I had to hold you for as long as I could the last time. I hope you felt how much I love you.
With tears and crying in everyone there while surrounded by love from us all, the vet preped you for your final exit. You were such a good girl even then.
You laid your head against mine and I held you even closer. I could not nor did I want to, let go. My heart broke, no it shattered into a million pieces that will never be whole again because I am missing a big piece of it.
There was not a dry eye in the whole place. You have affected so many people. You are so loved by so many from everywhere you have been. You have changed the nay sayers about Rottys and turned them into Rotty lovers. From your terrible start in life with little to no trust to being a great ambassador for your breed. Everyday you made me more proud then the day before.
So my beautiful angel, with a shattered heart I say, I loved you at the start, loved you more everyday and will love you more til my days are over. Then I can have you in my arms again.
Remember my words to you that I said every morning of every day you were in my life..... Good Morning Beautiful, How was your night?
To all the friends who have helped us all through this. THANK YOU. Your kindness and continued support is priceless and we love you all.
My friends in HUD and Rotty Rules.... DOG BLESS you all.
