Memorial to our Sweet “Auntie” Alice (Adopted 4-25-10)
I’m very sad to tell you that our beloved dog Alice was peacefully euthanized last night. She developed mega esophagus and that combined with her very bad lung disease made it too difficult for her to eat anything and she had a rapid decline. She had been through so much in her life before she came to live with us, we did not want her to suffer at the end. We have a very kind vet who came to our home and did it quietly here for her and she had her 2 “brothers” there with her as well as us.
Alice lived with us for almost 3 3/4 years, longer than we thought we would have her given all her medical problems, but it wasn’t nearly long enough. We loved her so much and miss her terribly. I know that her years with us were probably the best years of her life and we likely gave her extra time she would not otherwise have had but right now that doesn’t help at all.
I’m trying to be grateful for the time she did spend with us and think of all the good times we had together but it’s hard. She was one of the dearest, sweetest dogs I have ever known and we will always be grateful to have had the opportunity to welcome her into our family.
