|Dixie (1999 - November 4, 2012)|
Shawnee and I came home from hiking last Sunday to find Dixie collapsed on the kitchen floor, unable stand at all. Her paws were ice cold and I do not believe she had any feeling in her legs. She was awake but not in pain. She let me wrap her in a blanket and carry her to the car without struggling like she normally would have. I took her to the emergency clinic where she snuggled into my arms as she peacefully left the deteriorating body that could no longer sustain her.
RIP Dixie Doodle. We love you and miss you.
