This blog is filled with the things I love. Family, Nature, gardening, my pets, cooking in the fireplace, all things vintage, and the simple pleasures in life. Being a farmgirl at heart, I consider myself a 'Modern Day Laura'

Missing my Daisy
My sweet Daisy died Sept 27, 2014, quite unexpectedly. She died of congestive heart failure. Five weeks prior to her dying we took her to the vet because something was wrong. Of course we didn't know she had congestive heart failure. There is so much guilt from not knowing, but we did what we thought we were suppose to do at the time. We trusted the vet. There is anger, and tears. I just can't believe Daisy is gone. Daisy suffered at the end. It wasn't fair at all. When she collapsed Sept 26th we took her to the vet again and we were told she was dying. We wanted the family to have a chance to say goodbye first. Everyone had the opportunity to say goodbye, and we took some pictures. We had planned on bringing her back to the vet the next morning so we could put her down, but she died in my husbands arms the next morning just as we were about to put her into the car for that final trip to the vet. it was horrible. Our other dog Oliver, is not the same.
