We are so sad. I can't even put it into words. She was only 5 years old. She was the sweetest dog ever. She just couldn't bounce back from the infection she developed. She was no longer eating, drinking and she could no longer stand on her own. She was laying on the kitchen floor wimpering. It was too much to handle and not fair for her to continue on in her condition. We put her down this afternoon.
Ciaran has asked at least 10 times "where Duchess is?". I don't know what to tell him yet. They are only 2 1/2 years old so they don't get it. He just wants her to come home. We all just want her to come home.
She will be missed by everyone in our family. Here are some pics of her along with her best friend, Duke. I am not sure how Duke is going to get along without her. THey have been together since birth and have never been apart since. I hope he can handle it.
