For those who remember Katie, she went to sleep a few nights ago and went to the Rainbow Bridge. It took a few before I could post.
She was 12, almost 13, not bad for a seven year old that they thought wouldn't have long due to the damage to her heart from heartworms. When I took her in she'd never been allowed in a house, had run free and did what she wanted, which is what got her in trouble. She had heavy heartworm infestation, but due to never having been in a house had also never been in a crate, so I had to quickly crate train her before she could begin treatment. She was skin and bones when she came. I wish I'd taken a current picture, but I hadn't. She'd greyed up a lot more, had slowed down, but still could get up by herself and wander around the fenced yard. We really miss her.
