This is a sad posting but since my camera is out of batteries I pulled up some more pictures I took in the summer while walking around the pond......
In 2001 I lost my sweet Golden Reteiever Daisy. She was only two years old and it broke my heart. I was at work and got a call saying she had been hit on the road and was badly injured in her back area. We usually had her tied up because she wasn`t road wise and the road is very busy out here. She got loose. I rushed home in a panic and we went to the vets where she was and the vet kindly came with us to another for a second opinion. The other vet said that even if we took her to where they do intensive veterinarian operations and had the hundreds it would take to pay for an operation that they wouldn`t be able to save her. So I layed on the floor with her, my arms wrapped around her as the vet gave her the leathal injection.
We took her back home and hubby and my dad dug her grave under the apple tree by the woods, while Elvis and I watched, seeming to share in our misery and sadness. I knew that it was important that Elvis see because he would have been searching for her constantly otherwise.
This is Daisy with Elvis.....
This is out little pet cemetary. It now also has my sister`s cat and guinea pig, one of our cats, Clover, and my Mum`s chinchilla resting here.
This is Daisy`s grave. Engraved on the plaque is " In Loving Memory of Sweet Daisy, May 1999- July 10 2001 Who Frollicks safely In Gods Country" My Dad got the little dog statue and hubby got the plaque made for her.
I wish so much that my beloved Ben dog was buried here too.
He was with us for nine short years. They are both missed tremendously.
