Ooh, a shiny pen

Random things that pass thru my sometimes crazy life and mind.

Today was a sad day.

My female Great Dane, Roxi, has been battling autoimmune hemolytic anemia (a genetic blood disorder) and today she succumbed to the disease.

At 8:59 this morning Roxi was put down. She would not be able to fight anymore and deserved to rest.

Her blood pressure was sooo low it barely registered. She had no capillary refill and her blood was as thin as water.

Roxi struggled to stay alive until I got home, I carried her to the pick-up (she couldnt even stand), took her to our loving vet who sooo sweetly put her down. She is at peace.

I am so sorry, baby. She was a good old box o' rocks.

Sadness. Animals are like family members, aren't they? We have an indoor cat that pretty much entertains my life. I am always thinking about her when I'm gone wondering if she misses me.

I'm very late reading this but I just had to say I feel very sad for you losing a beloved pet.
