We had to make the heartbreaking decision to let Keesha move on Tuesday night. We were managing a few age related health issues with her but ultimately it was her hips that failed her. We even tried a series of glucosamine injections but they didnít have any effect. She was also deaf and had k9 Cognitive Dysfunction Syndrome along with an antibiotic resistant Urinary tract/bladder infection. The declining cognitive behavior compounded the problems and was been extremely difficult watching her struggle and cry unable to understand or accept why her hips didnít do what she wanted them to.
The past few days have been very hard but we couldnít have asked for a better ending for her. She was feeling pretty good Tuesday so I was able to get her outside and to the mailbox and around the yard a bit. She ate very well and was eating treats right up until the end. Our Vet is awesome and came to the house. He let her go in comfortable stages while her head was in Lizís lap. Very peaceful and dignified but Liz and I are still crying like kids who missed Christmas. We got her back this afternoon and she has joined her Sister Sasha close to where they slept.
Thank you so much again for your part in getting Keesha to us. She was such an amazing Pup and Liz and I both know how lucky we were to have her in our lives.
