This has been a crappy week. I was getting back into the swing of blogging regularly, but our Mini Schnazuer began to fail rapidly, so we made that gut-wrenching decision to euthanize her. It will be a week ago tomorrow. This was one very special pup - exceptionally bright - and she had such expressive eyes. When she looked at you she was asking questions: "What can I do? Do you need me, right now...?" Our little Shih Tzu, while very lovable, just wants to be loved...nothing else, nothing more. And that's a good thing, too.
We held Zoey in our arms while the doctor gave her the injection. It was a very peaceful, gentle death. She will always be in our memories...
We made a decision to find another dog, against popular belief. But we thought it would be the best for us and for Katie. Katie has had surgery, put up with that stupid collar for ten days, lost her sister, and now is beleagured by a puppy. The little guy, Homer, is wanting to play with her but she's not wanting any part of him. She has not growled or snapped once - although, I think if she did, he might back off.
He was part of a litter whose Yorkie mom was stolen. The folks that took the litter in hand-fed them around the clock so he's a real lover boy. His dad is a Shih Tsu, so he should be a real cutie to go along with the attitude!
By the way - I am not responsible for naming him~
