The time came for Spotty to go to Doggy Heaven. She had been carried out into the garden early this morning and lay in the sun and shade She was incontinent and her back legs were not working. Flies were hovering over her body. The postman called and he agreed with me that she was ready to depart this world. It was he who encouraged me to go to the vet that day. I could see Spotty would not last until next Wednesday evening.
I contacted the vet and-all on my own – I carried her to the car but before going I carried her round the garden and the house for one last time so she could say goodbye. I drove the short distance to the vet. All morning I’d talked to her and stroked her. I sat with Spotty as she lay in the boot of the car until the vet was ready.. She gave me one very small lick on my finger. The vet carried her side and there administered the drug. In a matter of seconds she had gone- on her way to Doggy Heaven.
In about 2 weeks time her Ashes will be brought back to me and she will be sitting somewhere in pride of place, with her photos and rosette she had for being a ‘Golden Oldie’.
Life must go on and this afternoon all evidence of ‘dog’ had been sorted out and hidden away. Tea was strange as it was only ME and no dog to join me.
These photos were taken earlier in the year. I have many photos and many memorable times spent with Spotty
