My heart is breaking as I write this. Yesterday we had to make the terrible decision to say goodbye to our sweet little girl, our cocker spaniel, Katie.
Katie was our best friend, the brightest spot in our lives. She was our child.
Wednesday we received the devastating diagnosis that she had a very accute severe form of anemia. The same type we lost our sweet cocker Emily to three years ago.
We are crushed. Katie was until Tuesday a happy, very healthy and active little girl. She was very energetic, and played just like a puppy. Her mischievous ways always made us laugh.
We brought her home as a little 8 week old ball of fluff. She was just the cutest puppy ever. She helped heal our hearts after losing Emily.
She went everywhere with us. Long walks each day, car rides, camping trips, trips to the beach, and boat rides. She was a constant companion, full of love and fun.
We are beyond shocked.
We rushed her Wednesday to the animal hospital, where she ended up getting three blood transfusions.
Yesterday at 6am, we received a phone call that she had a blood clot on her brain.
We rushed to go see her, but by then, 2 hours later, were informed she had additional blood clots on her lungs and in her stomach. They said there was nothing more they could do, and that most likely she wouldn't make it thru the day. That is when we made the very, very painful decision to end her suffering.
There are no words to describe how devastated we are.
We miss our sweet Katie so very much, she meant the world to us.
Our hearts are hurting, and it feels that life will never be the same again.
It is a huge loss, we are numb.
We miss our baby.
