Sorry doesn't cut it, I know, but I am. I am so sorry for your loss.

daisy chose her time. she did it her way. i think she had courage and wanted your last memory of her to be at home. be brave for her, she was quite a girl.
bless her heart. and yours.

I'm so sorry to hear this, Sarah. Love to you and Moose!

(PS, Allison_SMC - that's a sweet story - I always think animals know so much more than they give us credit for. They look after us more than we look after them :) )

I'm so sorry to hear about Daisy. As a dog-mom who is watching her little one get older, I can very much imagine how hard it must be.

Just finally read this -- what a beautiful tribute to an incredibly dear, very special friend. Sending you much love. xo Karine

awww poor sweet daisy. I miss her already. I hope you want to eventually hire that dog physic-I'm betting D will be one of ____'s graces, and will offer lots of insights.

I just saw this post and I also lost my first "family dog", Ginger- unexpectedly when I was 3 months pregnant. One day she was acting strangely so I took her to the vet and they found nothing wrong with her and, of course, by the time we got to the vet she was acting normally. The next morning I had an appt with a blood doc to investigate the possibility of a blood clotting disorder that could threaten my pregnancy and would require ongoing treatment. Ginger was acting strangely again that morning but I made her comfy, spoke sweetly to her, cuddled her and left tearfully for my appt....i felt that I had to choose my human baby over my furbaby. When I returned from my appt she had passed away. It didn't seem like she had suffered but I was heart broken. I wasnt there when she needed me and I still dont know what was wrong with her. I feel your pain and I am sorry for your loss.

    What is Starfish Envy??

    • L.A. 2009. I’m stuck in traffic on the 101 freeway, listening to Isabella Rosselini on NPR. Isabella, for some reason, mentions that starfish are one of those rare species that can reproduce asexually, and I realize that if I could do that, I wouldn't have to worry about finding a boyfriend/husband. I wouldn’t have to internet date! I wouldn't have to figure out if I want to/can/should have a baby/adopt a baby/child on my own. I wouldn't have to stress about things like FSH levels, or weigh my feelings on in vitro versus adoption. I would just have a baby. Thus began my starfish envy.
