As I said in another thread a few days ago, I made the difficult decision to have Eddie euthanized on Monday after it became clear his quality of life was severely compromised by seizures, an adverse reaction to seizure meds, and a heart condition. It has taken me a while to pull myself together enough to write my tribute to him - his death came only four days after Shiloh passed away. Here is the link to the post I put on my blog today, celebrating Eddie's life: http://mylifewiththecritters.blogspot.c ... ridge.html
Thanks - my friends have returned home and the house is so quiet and empty. Mitzi is more like a cat - doesn't care if you are nearby or not (mostly sleeps in a room in the back of the house) as long as she gets one little walk a day and her dinner. I feel like I'm rattling around with nothing to do - went over to the SPCA this morning for a doggy fix. They talked to me about a 15 year old lab they have in foster care and may need a home for, but it's much too soon. I'll give myself a couple of months before I start looking. There are things I'm looking forward to do that I couldn't do with three old dogs - spend some time exploring, visiting etc. It's just hard to make the adjustment from houseful of needy dogs to house-almost-empty.
