It's really hard to even be in our house right now because we keep coming across little tufts of black dog hair. Our Shawna was shedding something fierce the last couple of weeks and after yesterday it's just really rough on some of us when we see the little tufts of hair.
Some will probably see this post and think..."It's just a dog." but we've had this trash can raider for 17 of her 19 years so she's a valued member of our family and actually hasn't thought of herself as a dog for MANY years. If your not a pet owner I guess you wouldn't understand but if you are and you have loved and lost a pet you can probably understand what my family is feeling right now.
The upside is that she felt no pain in the end and we were all there with her so she was with familiar people at the end. We're having her cremated so she'll be here with us again in a week or two. Laci misses her like the devil....she's been looking up and down for Shawna since last night and just has not been acting like her normal self either. I'm hoping that it will start to hurt less in the next few days....but that may just be wishful thinking on my part.
