Default There is another gsd angel in heaven

We had to have Sierra put down yesterday. She had recently
been diagnosed with hyperthyroid (cancer) and was having
problems swallowing. We gave her sub-Q fluids for a couple
of days, but that was just not sustainable.

I'm very thankful that our vet has a nice room set up with
couches and rugs and plants to make it seem less clinical.
And the staff could not have been more supportive and
caring and understanding. That does make it a tiny bit
easier. They even have a side entrance, so you don't have to
walk through a waiting room full of people and their pets.

I went for my regular walk this morning, she enjoyed our
walks and I feel like she would have wanted me to do it.

I'm going to try and remember her like this, playing with
her little brother:

Oh, Val, I am SO sorry to hear this. We never got to meet Sierra, but I know she was a much loved member of your family, and she wasn't with you for nearly long enough. Condolences to you and Paul.

Fly free Sierra...You are missed beloved GSD...

I think you did the right thing. And she will tell you this herself a long Long LONG time from now! Glad you are taking your regular walks without her. I agree she would want you to carry on with life...

You do have to remind yourself of all the good times with Sierra. I'm very sorry for everyone. She was a beautiful, gentle girl.

I'm sorry for your loss. I liked the video of her and Sutter, she was very gentle. How old was she?

You have been in my thoughts a lot these last few days. That
time we took Sierra to a Pt. Isabel play date was when your
Dena was so ill and so you missed it.

She was 10 1/2 and we adopted her just a few days less than
5 years ago. I'm glad we did have the time, although it is
never long enough.

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. We have lost so many these past six or seven months. Remember the good times.
