I lost my 10 year old Sheltie to cancer last week. This has been the hardest week of my life. At least the vet told me she did not suffer. The last couple of years she had urinary tract infection (UTI) once a year. That is what I though was wrong with her this time. I though I would take her over, he would keep her overnight, treat her and I would go back the next day and pick her up. When I called the next day he told me it's bad you need to come on over. He showed me the X-ray's. She was full of cancer. He told me at her age it was best to put her to sleep. I followed his advice. I had her cremated and purchased a pet urn for her ashes. They are now setting in my house. I am just sick. I miss petting that soft thick fur of hers, her looking up at me with those beautiful brown eyes. I promised her the day I got her I would protect her. Now I have let her down. My vet said she was one of the best dogs he has ever had in his care. He said I did the best of everything for her. As you can tell, I am older, live alone. I really miss her. Every evening when "Wheel of Fortune" would come on she wo uld jump on my lap and watch it while I petted her. I feel like there is a hole in my heart that will never heal. Her name was Molly and she was the love of my life.
