the vet said there was no where else to go with her cardiac meds..her foretkor, vetmedin and lasix were already at the highest dose and she was coughing almost constantly and fluid was infiltrating her lungs again. she had past the point of enjoying her life and was coasting into simply struggling to exist. mandy was 18 yrs old...a sweet and kind dog...a gentle old soul.

rest in peace sweet mandy, if there is a heaven, i know max is happily there to greet you.





Rest in Peace sweet Mandy. Breaking my heart hearing of the losses over there but thankful all went with the utmost care and attention. Cannot imagine how it must feel to be their caregivers :(


I'm so very sorry for all your losses in the past few days. Dear little souls all of them. You speak so lovingly and respectfully of each and every one, you give them the dignity they deserve. Thank you for sharing their unique personalities, through your poignant words and wonderful photos of their sweet faces. They have touched a lot of hearts.


Mandy you were such a sweet and dignified lady and an awesome mom to Max! Rest in peace...

oh this is disturbing--we knew poor little mandy was on her way but so many so fast--it is very difficult --bless you little mandy and hugs to everyone we are all hurting


Everytime I check the blog another special one is gone! I agree, Max will be there waiting for his mother Molly. She was a very sweet dog, and was so attentive to Max when he was alive. This is getting sadder and sadder. Please no more! Carol, I'm so sorry- this has been a terrible 4 days for you. So many gone in so few days.
