We had a little mishap the other day in my backyard space. She was on the leash (always) because of the gators in the lake.. There's a five foot drop on a slant, but steep and she slipped down back feet first.. to the waters edge.. and couldn't get back up on her own.
Since she can't see or hear good anymore it was very traumatic for her. She is 16 years old this year, her face and eyelashes are all white now..the love and light of my life, and my animal loving friends know the feeling.
.. She's is my faithful, true friend, never hurts my feelings, doesn't care how I look or feel, she's there for me with that constant unchanging love. Yes, she makes my heart smile. Absolutely !!
