My dear friend.

This is my first post and unfortunately a very sad one. I am about to lose my best friend in the world. I am so upset, angry and confused. . . I just need to write to some people that have experienced the same thing. My girl, Enya has been a member of our family for only 5 years. We have been blessed to have her in our home. Enya is now suffering from Anaplasmosis, a disease that I never heard about until 3 months ago. Since the disease was discovered, this poor dog has been in and out the vet nearly two dozen times. We have spent countless hours by her side, my wife and I both encouraging her, only to see her slip into a more debilitating state. Everything from transfusions to Prednisone has been used on this pup and to our dismay she has now developed anemia. Our options at this point are limited, and we both see and feel the pain in her eyes. A once vibrant dog that could chase tennis balls all day has become but a memory. I love this dog and truly do not know what I will do without her in my life. We jogged every morning together, we brought her to my children's soccer games . . . dressed her for parades . . . and loved her to no end. . . I just can't say goodbye to her. . .

So so sorry, how heartbreaking. Just know that she needs you more than ever right now and trusts you to do what's best- even though it's the worst thing for you. That's what love and devotion requires of us.

Find some comfort in the fact that for the last five years you have provided a life for her that so few dogs enjoy. And you were able to feel the joy that so few people do by sharing their lives with a loved pet.

Thank you all!

Your responses are comforting. I am literally in sitting in my office in tears. I attached a picture of my girl . . . Enya.
