R.I.P Sox

Last night we had to put our wonderful dog, Sox to sleep. She'd been ailing for a long time, but she had a seizure, which I think resembled a stroke. I gently held her through it, but when she came through it, she was terrified and panicked. She was blind and had lost the stability of her back legs. She went from panic and crying, (which she never cried) to passing out cold.  And it ripped my heart to shreds.

We had her for almost fifteen years. And she was that dog. You know the one. The one who was faithful to the bone, protective and loving. You had to earn her trust and love, but once you had it, it was yours forever. Smart and sweet and fun. The one all other dogs will never be able to ever measure up to. The best dog you've ever known.

I love you and miss you terribly, Sox.

I'm sorry, Ava. I know how it feels. We lost our dog nearly two years ago and I miss him every day.
