RJ's Princess Daisy
4/12/93 - 3/25/08
We had to have our dear ol' Daisy put to sleep this afternoon. She's been declining over the last few months, but it had become more pronounced in the last couple weeks. Today when we got home from work, she came outside and then after a few moments of confusion, she collapsed on the sidewalk. We got her back up and steady enough on her legs to come back in the house and eat her supper. She seemed OK for a little while, but then her weakness and disorientation seemed to come back again. Her heart was beating so fast you could hardly distinguish the individual beats. Thankfully, I was able to get hold of the vet and she was able to rearrange her schedule to come out and euthanize Daisy for us. Mr. Johnson and I held Daisy in our arms as she went peacefully to sleep. To say that we're devastated would be an understatement. We knew this day was coming, but there's really no way to prepare for it. We loved her very much and we're thankful for all the good years and fun times we had with her.
