  • In Memory of Julie

    My little girl Julie had to be put down yesterday, she was only nine. She was my best friend. She always listened to my problems and acted like she understood. I remember when I got her my boyfriend tried to surprise me by sneaking off to buy her for me but I saw the newspaper ads circled on the counter and new what he was up to. But what I didn't expect was him to bring home a shoe box. She was so tiny she fit in one. That dog went every where with me for about the first 6 years of her life. I took her to work with me. I worried when my first child was on the way that she would be jealous. But it wasn't anything to worry about that baby was her baby. She would lay by her if she was on the floor having tummy time. Once I had to bring my daughter to work at the groom shop she was about 6 months old, well I had her in a play pen and someone came up to the half door and Julie (a small cocker spaniel) leaped into the playpen. She later acted as my daughters pillow and they had a nice nap together.
    As she got older she hated to be used as a pillow, but I didn't blame her. She was my old girl now. Her babysitting days were over.
    Anyways she started going down hill a couple of years ago. I blame her poor breeding as I said before my boyfriend got her from an ad in the paper. She started getting bad skin due to her thyroid problem, and seizures occasionally, but she developed a cough that the vets could not figure out they did x-rays, tested for all sorts of things but nothing helped. Her last few days it was constant and she only stopped when I think she was exhausted from coughing and fell asleep. I knew she had to be in a lot of pain she was shivering so I decided it was time. She was the oldest dog I have ever had. And I will miss her forever. We love you Julie

      So Sorry To Hear About Julie

      I know it is so hard to loose a friend. Nine is not a long time for a dog. I know she is happy now, and I like to believe we will be with them again someday. She was pretty.

        She looks so pretty in the picture.

        I'm so sorry for your loss - our furbabies never live long enough, no matter how many years it is. My thoughts and prayers are with you and Julie.

            She was so loved I could tell by what you wrote about her. She was one of those special girls. Sounds like she was a great babysitter. What a pretty dog she was.

            So sorry for you loss of Julie. Remember all the good times you had with her.

                I was just looking at your website today, and saw that photo. I dind't expect to see it in the pet memorials. Good thing I'm not wearing mascara right now or it would be running down my face. I'm so sorry to hear about your loss, I'm also glad that you made a good decision in not letting her suffer. I know that must have been very hard though. That was a very unselfish decision.
