Fenster beagle butt
Thats what I used to call her. She was 15 yrs, 4 mths & 12 days old when she left me & headed for the rainbow bridge. I miss her so much, it gets worse each day & I just want her to come home.
I got her when she was 8 wks old. We were inseparable. The first night together I gave in & she slept across my neck enjoying the warmth. She slept next to me for the next 8 years until my husband arrived on the scene. She tore her ACL in her back leg at the age of 12 but surgery fixed it. She partially tore the other one 2 yrs later & from then on things were never quite the same with her back legs but she had the strongest spirit & each day she'd get up & bark & say I'm fine, no need to worry about me. I haven't worked for 10 years (quadriplegic) so there would be days where it was just me, Fen & Max (2nd dog) playing & walking. Then one day I got up & she wasn't barking at my door wanting breakfast & attention, she was still on her bed. She found it hard to get up & when she did she kept collapsing on her back legs. I knew it was time but it had to done at home. She hated going to the vets & I wanted her last thoughts to be happy ones. It was arranged for the following day so we spent the last 24 hrs together playing & sleeping together & I never left her side until she was carried away from me. It was calm, peaceful & it was time but a part of me died on that day & I will never be the same. I miss you Fen & you will always be in my heart. 5.5.96 - 17.9.2011 xxxx
