Thank you Drs. Julie and Annie. It was at this time I began to look at Home Euthanasia Vets. I found Dr. Annie's website and vowed that when Chia's time came I would call her. Julie arrived promptly, quietly and respectfully.
Taking her to the vet became a traumatic event . One day her back legs refused to hold her up. This was the day. I immediately called Dr Forslund's office, and they said they would send Julie out at 430pm. The rest of the day was spent in turkey treats and hugs. A relaxation shot was given and then the final injection. My girl was gone within seconds ....peacefully, lovingly and respectfully. She was carried away in a beautiful wicker basket with soft pastel blankets. She was returned to me in a lovely wooden box and silk bag.
I was fortunate to have had my dear dog Chia for 16 years. She enjoyed entertaining folks with her many tricks, and was a loving companion. By the time she reached 15 she was deaf and her back legs began to fail her. When I think of my girl, I can't help but remember her peaceful passing. Tis truly what she deserved.
