BUSTER 8/15/02 TO 4/4/18

Her heart was strong as was her appetite.  But she cried out in pain every second she was awake.  A week of stronger and stronger pain killers did not help.  It took less than 5 minutes but Dr. Head helped her pass.  I chose to put her to sleep first.  Normally she fights it for 20 minutes.  Maybe a minute or 2 and she was out.  Then he gave the medicine to stop the heart and brain.  Maybe a minute after he took out the needle she was gone.

There is no better medicine/drug than dogs.  No drug of any kind can give you the joy and high of a good dog. 

Dr. Head was so good in helping me make the call.  It was my call, but he knew her for 13 1/2 years and saw she was gone.  She was covered in tumors, along with two new ones which sooner than later would require removal.  I had to hold her up to eat or drink.  She could not stand at all.

BUSTER AND KEATON ARE NOW TOGETHER - AND MY HOUSE IS EMPTY

I see and smell her everywhere. When I got home as a distraction I cleaned the entire house. The smell and sou d's are hers. It will last a couple of days

I had to do the same for my dog last spring.
