RIP Kelsey.

7/28/08 we had to put my dog down.
She was 15 years old, her kidneys were failing. I didn't want her to suffer and there wasn't anything the vet could do. So we said goodbye.

I'm so upset about this.....we got her as a puppy when I was one year old. I've grown up with her. I can't believe shes really gone. Ever corner I expect her to be there. but shes not. she'll never be there again. I know shes not suffering and shes happy now. It was her time and she lived a long happy life. Even knowing all that i still want her back to hold her once more, and its still very hard.

RIP Kelsey.

Kelsey is on the left

kelsey and Shelly, Kelsey is Shelly's mom.

Shelly isn't doing too well either...she keeps looking for her.

Kelsey is on the right.

Kelsey was not fat in anyway. She was just a big boned westie. Before we put her down, she lost a lot of weight. and her stomach was still just as big...but her hips were starting to stick out. Her weight was normal. She just looked big.

Looked after by a 7 year old, flea-bitten grey, OTTB named Scooty.

RIP kelsey. I love you forever baby girl.

i totally feel the same. My dog Sheba that I had ever since she was 4weeks old finally dies about a year ago and she was 13. But i can promise it does get easier, and having another dog that was close to Kelsey will help.

Awwh Stephh. <33 I know EXACTLY how you feel. My parents purchased a golden retriever, Lady, when I was one year old. Like you. She died 2 years ago at the age of 12. I miss her soo much. She was bred for obedience and man, that dog was definitely the perfect dog. She wouldn't do anything wrong. I love her and I miss her SO much. No dog can EVER replace her. I love Ginger with all my heart, but she's the naughtiest little sucker. Lady was perfect. And such a lady.

Hang in there. <33
