RIP Sweet Juno

About a year and a half ago I found Juno on here in our non-urgent rescue section. Being I tend to like the sad cases and those who just need a chance at a good life no matter how much time they have left, I was drawn to her. With the help of some fellow rescuers, I managed to get her up to NY from NJ and into our house and family. Juno quickly became my shadow and what a sweet girl she was. She fit right in with the pack and took to my husband and myself right away. We knew her time with us could be any time, as she had two congenital heart defects, PDA and SAS. A previous cardiologist had seen her and felt medical management was her best option over surgery so that is the path we took. This morning, I had to let our beautiful Juno go to the bridge. She had been fading slowly over the past few months but started to get worse the past couple weeks and last few days she went downhill so fast. My Juno wasn't her happy self anymore and I could see it in her eyes, she was tired, she was done. Do I wish she had passed in her sleep on her own, sure but she went peacefully in my arms without a fight.

Living the life, pillow and all

Playing outside, she was never far from a ball

With her little man Eagle, who is missing her right now, he can't understand where his big playmate is.

I'm pretty, right mom?

Just a couple weeks back before she started going down hill, playing like crazy outside with Eagle

RIP Juno, you were an amazing dog and I'm happy we had the time we had together, regardless how short. I love you always.

Re: RIP Sweet Juno

Thank you for giving Juno her forever home, however short that time was. She looks so happy and content in the pictures. I so admire those of you who take these dogs into your hearts and home, knowing full well that your time together is probably limited. It takes such a huge and selfless heart to do that.

Run free and healthy, beautiful girl...
