I had rescued her back in 2008 & she stayed with me about a year. My good family friend came over & met her. It was love for both of them. She went to live with them in Iowa & they would come back & forth to Louisiana to visit family. It was always special to see her & how well loved she was. She always seemed to remember me too. While she was in Louisiana about 2 months ago she stopped eating & wasn't acting right. Her owner took her to the vet & they said she was diabetic with out of whack levels. So they got that ok & put her on insulin. Things improved & a few weeks ago they went back to Iowa. He called me last week & said she had stopped eating so he took her to the vet. They said she had kidney issues & put her on an IV. It helped some but the kidney levels weren't good & then her blood count tanked. Even with all our prayers & medical help she passed away last night. He is devastated. He's in his 80s & she was his best buddy going everywhere with him. It has broken both our hearts but she is not suffering & had a safe & happy life with him. She was 9 so we hoped he'd have her for a few more years. She dies in his arms knowing she was loved & I do believe we will all meet up again. That will truly be heaven.
