Saying Goodbye

Rest in peace, Suzy Crooked Tail. Today we had to make that choice. We think she had a stroke or something yesterday. When I came home last night, she seemed to have gone blind. I fed her by touching one spoonful of food at a time to her nose. When I let her outside she got lost in the yard. She wandered into a pile of my shoes and could not find her way out. (Yes, it’s funny that I have a pile of shoes a small dog can get lost in, but sad too.) Today Denny found her in the corner when he got home. She was probably trying to find the dog door or a food dish or her bed. I know that is no way for her to go on living, but that doesn’t make me miss her less. I am thankful we did not go through some of the messier aspects of kidney failure that we could have seen. This was maybe a blessing. She went peacefully and she was very well loved. Goodbye, sweet little dog-muffin.


  1. Big hugs to you. It is impossible not to miss the little beings who come to have such big places in our hearts. She was one of the luckiest dogs in the world, I know this.

    1. She certainly was. And she gave us a lot of stories.
