Heart Broken

Two weeks ago we were having dinner with my beloved Mandy sitting by the table hoping some food would drop off on to the floor. Suddenly she struggled to get up from the floor. When she did, she couldn't quite get her footing. After being able to stand she started running into the kitchen cabinets and walls. We instantly knew she had suddenly gone blind. We took her into the bedroom and tried talking to her but with no response from her, she had also gone deaf. I tried comforting her by petting her and holding her again with no response from her, she had lost her sense of touch and smell.

We immediately took her to the vet who informed us she had suffered a severe brain impairment and had lost all her senses. We had no choice but to lead her to the rainbow.

As I type my tears are falling, she was my best friend for 10 years. While I miss her dearly every day, I know she's in a better place. I just wish the pain of losing her would subside. RIP my beautiful baby.
