Sandy

A couple of days ago Sandy began to shows signs of pain and was very stressed during the nights. We took her to the vets and he said his pessimistic side felt the cancer had returned his optimistic side said she had hurt her back.

Last night we eventually discovered her pain was coming from the base of her back/tail, despite throwing our full arsenal of pills and potions at her, we were unable to control her pain and having discussed it through with her vet this morning we felt it was unfair to prolong the pain she was in. There simply was no where else to go.

Sandy deteriorated quite rapidly this morning whilst we were waiting for the vet to arrive, which in a way confirmed our fears that it was indeed the cancer.

Eric took Sandy and Jim for one final ride together and when they came back I watched Sandy clean Jim's ears and he in return nuzzled her and it was truly the most wonderful but heartbreaking little scene to witness, I truly felt they were saying goodbye to each other.



Sandy is now at peace with no more pain.

Sandy you were the bravest little lady I have ever met....and beautiful right up to the end.



Love you always....
