My baby girl, Kally, will turn 10 next month. Well, as far as we know -- we adopted her when she was 1.5 according to the shelter, so I'm guessing she could be a little older/younger.
She's had a history of back problems (I just posted in the Dog Health forum) but is otherwise healthy. Sometimes, I just get overwhelmed thinking about her not being here. I have hope she will have many more good years but her back problems concern me.
She is my first dog that was *mine.* We had two different dogs growing up that I loved a lot but they were clearly more attached to my parents. I got Kally when I was in college... rescued her from a shelter and she is seriously an incredible dog. She is so smart and loving and really attached to me -- and me to her.
I don't know why I'm posting this... just wanted to get it out there I guess I can cry just thinking about her not being here. We also have another furbaby who will is 5.5... she adores Kally, she's her "big sister." I know she will also be devastated when Kally is no longer here and I worry about that too.
I guess I worry too much but I figured you would all understand I want Kally here for as long as can be, as long as she is loving life and has a great quality of life! Sometimes I think it is a "brave" thing to fall so in love with a dog because we know we will out live them... but I can't imagine my life without her
Thanks for listening
