My little Kisses will never kiss me again
She was just six weeks when this little puff ball caught my eye. For the next few years she was at my side regardless of my destination. On business trips, the office, shopping. She was so loving, affectionate; wanting nothing more than to be touched. I love my Kisses.
As time passed her personality was unique. Completely loyal and yes very jealous.
She was always in excellent health and I never had any issues with her. She was loved by so many and spoiled. But then again she was my little girl.
At age 12 her life became more complicated. A bladder infection, displaced discs, failing heart was part of her daily life. It pained me to see her like this. I provided the very best in vet care and she improved. But steroids and pain meds were part of her life now.
On a sunny Saturday afternoon without any warning she began to yelp loudly; the pain was evident. Later the vet determined that her hip bone came out of the socket, her heart was enlarged and she was in plenty of pain. During the exam the vet managed to restore the hip into its socket, medicated i took her home. I new time was not on her side. She could barely stand.
Sunday came and I visited my parents. Kisses was spoiled with treats. Only hours later as I placed her onto the grass she again yelped in severe pain. The vet again determined that the hip bone was displaced. With a bad heart and no promise that an operation would improve her life, I made the single most difficult decision of my life. Did I do the right thing? I hope so. I have lost my little Kisses. My pain although not physical cannot be measured. Your name had been etched on my body many years ago Kisses, the memory of you forever in my heart. I Love you Kisses.
