This is our girl Angel. We got her in March of 2002. We didn’t know how old she was, since she was found in the shelter by the local lady doing rescue at the time. Collie rescue. The shelter didn’t know she was a smooth blue collie. We saw her and had to have her, because we already had two smooth blue collies and needed a third.
Yes, we needed a third! 🙂 We love her to death. But she is getting very old now, and as the days go by she is getting worse bit by bit. She’s very unsteady on her feet. She hasn’t eaten much the last few days and has lost 3 pounds in the last week. She is having a hard time finding the water in the water bowl too. She doesn’t seem to be in pain, but she doesn’t seem to have much of a quality of life anymore, either.
So the husband and I are talking about whether or not it’s time to let her go. It breaks my heart. I will miss her, but I don’t want her to suffer, and I don’t like seeing her wobble so much, and have a hard time drinking and eating. She deserves better than that.
This picture was taken on the 25th of April, Jet’s birthday. And she was a lot spunkier then than she is even now, only a week or so later. My poor baby girl. She’s my pumpkin pie girl, and I really hate having to make this decision.
