before we have to say our goodbyes. We started Annie back on her medicine this past week. She's not getting better.
Today she was full of it. She wanted to play and go outside. But she kept following me all over the house, no matter where I went she was there. She laid in my lap all morning long. We both thoroughly enjoyed it.
She and I walked up and down the driveway. I could tell she enjoyed it. She had that "look" in her eye and a spring in her step.
She even started to venture across the road.
We also walked to the pasture so she could visit with the horses. She and Dakota had some serious talking to do.
There is no telling what secrets they shared! Annie was serious about wanting to run with them but they were not in the mood.
Hey! Come on guys, let's run!
I noticed just before dinner tonight that she had been lying around and something just wasn't right. I started wondering if she was trying to tell me something today by going outside. Kind of like doing some favorite things one more time.
Joe and I have discussed it. He was going to take her to see Jason tomorrow but we are going to wait until Saturday since I have to work Friday. We both know it is time. Now is the time we have to be brave, very brave. For Annie. We have to make this hard decision for Annie. We both agree that we do not want her in pain. We both agree that we feel that she is in pain, more than we know. So, my friends, as the new years starts we are facing a tough weekend. But it is part of the deal. The deal of being a responsible pet owner. It's the hard part of the deal, but it is one that we accept because we love her so much.
I might take a few days off from blogging, I just don't know. I will let you guys know what is going on with her but it will be through many tears. But also through many precious memories of 7 years with an incredible baby. Our Annie.
