My Diva Passed Away Tonight
She almost made it to 12 years old...
She went completely blind 6 years ago, and nothing held her back. While her arthritis wasn't bad, she would still come running with me and Toby. You'd never know by watching her that she was blind.
My God, my little dog taught me so much about life, I can't believe she's gone. It happened suddenly -- last night she could barely move and refused a treat. This morning at the vet's her blood was like water...her red blood cells were dying rapidly.
I just can't believe she's gone.
She got a blood tranfusion but it wasn't enough. My other animals all know -- they knew last night I think. Things are going to be so different now without Diva. She's been with me through so much, she was my best friend. I just wish she could have made it through the summer -- she loved to lie outside on the grass in the summer.
My God, I miss her.
Good bye, Diva -- I miss you so much and will miss all our outdoor adventures together.
