After sixteen years, my gorgeous, sweet Gracie called it a day. Either her heart condition flared up, or she had developed cancer, but two days ago I noticed she had difficulty breathing. Took her to the vet yesterday. She got a shot of cortisone and they told me to see how she was this morning. She was worse. I brought her in again this morning. We tried one more treatment. Got her home, and she was suffering. So my vet fulfilled the promise he made me and came by with his tech. We put Gracie in her box and gave her peace.
I miss my girl.
