In Loving Memory Of Misty

Sad news about Misty my Chocolate Lab of 8 years.

When I got home from work last evening I noticed Misty was really ill (actually for the past several days she wasn’t herself). I had an appointment to see our Vet tomorrow but we could not wait. We took her to Tuft’s Vet Hospital Emergency tonight. They found a large mass in her abdomen – cancer. They could continue to do endless tests and operate, but in the end her prognosis was very poor and she was suffering. So Joe and I decided to have her put down. I spoke to our vet this morning. She said it was the right thing to do. What Misty had was not curable. We could have let her linger for a few more hours, or days, or weeks, but she would suffer. That lingering would have been for us and not her. Just need to share.

I would also like to share these wonderful memories of her….. but there are many more not in pictures!

We will all miss her greatly….. even Blue our new dog already knows something has happened to her….. his buddy, pal, and great friend……

I will miss her greatly….. her greeting at the door every night when I got home from work with her food dish in her mouth, her “dog dance” when she saw me, her wake up calls at 6AM on Sat and Sun (all other days excluded!), her telling me she wanted her rawhide chew after breakfast and dinner, her can’t waiting to get up to Maine for her dips in “The River” ……but she trained Blue well….. cause he now does the same.

MISTY…..MY BUDDY, MY PAL.
