My Daisy

(Middlesbrough, England)

I had to put my Daisy to sleep yesterday, she was 16 years old, we found out a last weekend that she had a tumour and with her age we did not want to put her through the trauma of surgery, so we opted for pain management. Sadly she developed a womb infection and yesterday we had to make the heartbreaking decision of letting her go, I am devastated. We have had her 16 years, she has grown up with my children and my grandchildren adore her, she is/was a very big part of our lives!

She was loved by everyone who met her, my nieces and nephews loved her, the whole family (aunties, uncles, cousins ) all adored her, we even had children from down the road come calling for her to see if she was "playing out" I couldn't believe it, she used to stand on the front and pop her head through the gates to see what was going on and who was passing, she was adorable.

I have been off work since I found out she was ill as I knew the end was near, but I did not think I would be this bad, I am distraught, I cant eat, I cant sleep, I miss her so much, she was my life. I don't know what I am going to do without her. x
