This is a tough post to write, and definitely NOT a favorite this Friday.  Monday night we had to put our sweet Jasmine down.  We discovered a large mass on her front leg about a month ago and the vet suspected cancer.  About 2 weeks later she could hardly walk and we brought her back in to find out that she had broken her pelvis.  We hoped and prayed that she would heal, but our poor baby was in constant pain.  We tried several pain meds and nothing helped.  We made the decision to put her down.  Our vet is one in a million.  She loves our animals as much as we do.  She actually came to our house to put her down at 7:30 on Monday night.  She walked in and sat down with Jazz and kissed her all over her face, she's amazing!

We're all devastated, you really take for granted how much they are a part of your family!


Jazz was an amazing hunter, that girl could swim laps for hours!

She was the most neediest dog you'll ever meet, anyone who came to the house, you were her best friend!!  The hardest part for me is the mornings.  As soon as she heard me come down the stairs, her tail would start whacking the wall and she'd jump up and down.  We'd go outside to go potty and then she'd eat her breakfast.  Most of the time she'd go out to potty, come in to eat and then go back outside for number 2.  Drove me BATTY!

Now my mornings are eerily quiet, and I don't like it one bit.  We had her for almost 11 years and she was another kid in our family.

I can't say enough how much we love our vet, she was so kind in explaining the process and how Jazz will feel nothing except no pain finally.

There will never be another one like Jazzy.

It's going to be a tough few weeks as we go through all of our "firsts" without her.  We'll get through it, but we will always miss our girl.

Linking up with Andrea.

I am so sorry to hear about your loss. Losing a pet, especially one who has been with you for 11 years, is hard to deal with. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
