On Saturday morning we had to have our dog Renee put to sleep. She was diagnosed with a liver disorder in July. She did OK, until Friday, when her condition deteriorated rapidly. Saturday morning I brought her to the vet's, knowing what the outcome would be. It was a very sad, sad time, but I made the decision to put her to sleep. It was the best for her, as I didn't want her to suffer. Renee came to us 8 years ago, when she was four years old. She was a "springer spaniel want-to-be. She was unwanted by her previous owner, as she growled at their child when he pulled her hair. She came here to live with us on the farm, and was the happiest dog alive. She loved the "country life". She had 39 acres to roam, and protect, and she took her job very seriously. She was the one who awoke us in the night, when something was "out of sorts", she was the one who barked non-stop, until somebody came to help, when one of the goat kids got their legs caught in a bench. She would come with me every morning when I did chores....she made the rounds, to make sure things were OK. She came with me every night to put the animals to bed, I'm sure to protect me from anything that may be lurking in the dark. We will certainly miss this wonderful girl. She was the best that you could ask for....and she asked for little in return. I still feel her presence here, and would like to believe that her angel is still on the farm, watching over things. Thanks to all you dear friends for listening. I felt I wanted to share this special dog with you as a tribute to her, and I knew that my friends here at goatworld would understand.
