Savannah my faithful companion
« on: June 13, 2018, 02:50:05 PM »
With a heavy and sad heart that I announce to you the passing of our four legged family member Savannah.  She was a faithful companion, a family member and a great hunter.  We will miss dearly, but we know that she is running in the green fields of puppy heaven without any pain and suffering.  Cancer and severe arthritis on her hips & back took a toll on her, and the quality of life was not there any more.  I owed it to her to take care of her even if it broke my heart.  We will miss her dearly, get the birds Savannah, get the birds.

Sorry to here of your loss.
 It's not easy to have a four legged member of the family put down but we have to think of the quality of life with the pain and suffering they are experiencing.
 Had to do the same thing not too long ago and it never gets easier.

Never easy but we owe them so much it is our responsibility to take care of them.

My son lost a 2 yr old dog little over a month ago. It was a shock as she had a great day helping with the cattle then took a spell and died in Daughter in laws arms. They were devastated but I put them in touch with a lady with pups for sale. Got a great pup so different from the other pup but just the right dog for them now.  :)

Four little paws wore a path to our heart
Fetching much joy and friendship and love;
Until two angel wings flew a spirit so sweet
To green meadows forever, above.

I am sorry for the loss of your great friend. I understand what it is to lose a loving pet. We love them because they love us.
Of all the gin joints in all the towns in all the world, she walks into mine.
