R.I.P. Daisy Ann Cross (2000-2009)

…my old walking partner

My dear friends,

At 8:30 this morning, our vet confirmed our worst fears: Daisy’s tumors were malignant and fast growing. At 11:30 this morning, after taking one last very slow walk and a drive around all of our favorite streets, Daisy was relieved of her suffering by our vet, Dr. Richards.

At 2:00 pm, Daisy was laid to rest in a nice secluded spot way up in the mountains. Our wonderful neighbor, Suzanne and her dog, Clancy, were there with Grace, Winker and I.

Daisy was a part of our family for just over 2 years. She will be in our hearts forever.

Goodbye, Daisy. You were a very good girl. We love you.

  14. I am so very sorry for your loss. I remember when my cat finally got too old to go on. Making the call to end it was the most difficult thing I have ever had to do. I feel your pain, and offer my sympathy.

    Damn it, Doc… you made me cry.

  23. jbru says:

    My condolences. I always love hearing about your dogs and will be sad that there is one less to tell stories about.

  24. I know this pain all too well, my friend. In my little fantasy world, Daisy has found Precious at the Rainbow Bridge, and they will lounge about, eat all they can, and wait for us to come get them…
