my other animals blog.
Skeeter made it up to the house on Friday, she had stayed down @ the other house for a couple days. I could hear her in the night moaning and she had quit eating so I decided I was biting the bullet and taking her in to the vet Saturday. She sat up most of the way there like finally I'm getting some attention. She is buried under the Rose of Sharon bush west of the house with a huge rock I'd dug out of the lawn for her gravestone. I will do a longer more detailed post later but this will have to do for now. She may have been 20, we know she was @ least well over 10 years old because she was old when we got her in 1999. She is the first dog we have had to have put to sleep because of old age. She was a tough old dog and I do miss her much more than I thought I would. The vet said her teeth looked like she was a young dog. She had a heart condition of some sort though and was getting congested and I'm sure she was uncomfortable. This video is from earlier in the week on one of her treks from one house to the other.
