Had a call from the Vet last night, Bella’s annual blood tests indicate she has kidney disease. This is a blow to all of us. We have had a few dogs over the years but she is by far the absolute best! She is smart and fun and cute and loving.
The vet said that with medication and proper diet she could live another 2 years, so it is not an immediate emergency, as she is 13 already and has had arthritis since she was 6. But I guess this is the beginning of the end.
Bella has done a lot with us, hiking, camping and even touring Washington DC back when the kids were in school. Her favorite thing to do is to go to the coffee shop and sit at the outdoor tables and lick whipped cream off our fingers.
People always ask about her because she is so well behaved and has such a gorgeous shiny coat.
For us she has been the perfect pet!!!
I know this has nothing to do with gardening, but I feel I can vent to all of you because people who garden love nature and our pets are a big part of that!
