Goodbye Dear Lady
Lady died this afternoon. (You can click on her name to read her story). She was getting old and arthritis was really giving her a hard time. The past few days the heat seem to take everything out of her. Lady just seemed to know it was her time. She struggled to get up this afternoon for her petting from William. Later she got up and came to me for her dog biscuit and treat. She went straight to lay down in front of her doghouse and just look up at me like she was so tired. I told William then she wouldn't make it through the night. She wasn't in pain. Just seemed like she was ready to go. A hour later she passed away. Our hearts are breaking over losing a loyal, loving,sweet member of our family but I am also worried about Tramp. He has never been away from Lady's side since the day we rescued him. He howled and howled when we removed Lady from the pen. I have him in with Polly right now but he just lays at the fence and looks over to his and Lady's pen. I know he is hurting and am afraid he will grieve himself to death. I don't know what to do for him. It's a very sad day here at Hidden Haven but we are very blessed to have had Lady in our lives for so many years. Lady you may be gone but you will never be forgotten.
