Can't forget Sami

It just dawned on me that I never gave an update on my sweet Sami. Last October, she started losing weight and sometimes would lose her balance. I took her to the vet and he ran many tests and determined that she had liver disease. She was 14 years old, but except for losing her hearing about a year ago had been in good health. We tried medications and special diets. She continued to lose weight and didn't have much of an appetite. About a week before Thanksgiving she stopped eating altogether, except for a few occasional Cheerios and also quit drinking water. I knew the time had come to put an end to her suffering. It was the hardest decision I've ever had to make. The veternarian provided us with some time alone with Sami before she came back in to start the procedure. It was a very calm and peaceful death. It has now been almost 6 months and we still miss her dearly. I'm not sure if dogs can go to heaven, but if they dad is the happiest man in the world!
