Part Time Pet Sitter
I have had my own dogs in the past, one dog at a time. First, a Cocker Spaniel named Shadow, He had black fur & he died at the age of 10. My family & I put him to sleep because he had kidney failure & a stroke. Then I had a Shepherd mix mutt from the pound. She died at the age of 7. She got sick one day & could not keep down anything not even water. After 24 hours I took her to the vet. They did blood work & said she was dehydrated & had lost a lot of weight & apparently come down with diabetes over 3 months time. They said treatment would take over night hospital care & cost over $3,000 & she probably would not make it through treatment. But if she did, then she would require twice a day insulin shots for the rest of her life. I decided to put her out of her misery, because I could not afford it & she was suffering too much & probably would not survive treatment. Growing up, mostly during my teenage years, My mom had 2 cats that I helped take care of. Typical pound bought cats who lived to be of age 11 & died of natural causes. Now, I have my own dog and I take care of everything for her. She is a purebred Siberian Husky AKC registered. She was born December 14th 2014.
