Thread: RIP Madison

  1. #1

    RIP Madison

    Tonight we laid to rest our 14 year old miniature schnauzer. She came in from outside, looked a little wobbly, and with a yelp collapsed on her side. The two other dogs stared at her, and the youngest ran up and tried to lick her face before I pushed him away.

    Took her to the vet who ran some x rays. Her liver was 3 times the normal size, pushing her stomach into her spine, and collapsing one lung. It was obvious she'd been in immense pain for a long time, but except for a little hobbling in the morning that I had attributed to old age, she never showed it. She had the stiff upper lip of a British monarch. Up until the end she tried her best to keep up with the other dogs, and she always pushed herself to meet me at the door, no matter how creaky her legs were.

    She wasn't always the friendliest dog to strangers, but she was loving and loyal and enriched our lives for the past 13+ years. I'm sad, but happy she lived a long, comfortable life. RIP Madison. I'll see you on the other side one day.

    Terribly sorry Paulie, you gave Madison a lot of good years. We put our 18 year old dog down Friday night. We just have to let time do its thing.

    32Green and I may be cousins, our ancestors live six miles apart (true). I may be contacting him for DNA.

    I hate to say this, but I may have been more distraught losing our dogs than family members. Probably because I haven't lost a family member who wasn't physically ravaged after long term suffering and the ending was something of a relief. Still, losing a pet is one of life's cruelest moments.
