The Sarge and Mom In Law suffered a terrible loss last night, they lost their sweet Millie.
Millie was an 11 year old miniature dachshund and she was an absolute delight. Millie never met a soul she didn't love and who didn't love her in return. She had a joyful outlook on life and brought that joy into every life she touched. To know her was to love her.
Millie had been ailing for a while. Late last night her breathing became very labored. Sarge and MIL took her to the emergency clinic where she was diagnosed with advanced cancer. It was interfering with her ability to breathe and the Vet wasn't even sure she'd survive the night. Sarge and MIL made the decision we all dread and Millie was eased from her pain and sent on to the Rainbow Bridge where she's playing with Samantha and Moses and waiting for those she loves best.
Our hearts go out to you both. May you take comfort in the idea that Millie led a loved and happy life and when it was her time you did your duty to her regardless of your pain. Lu, the DO, the kids and I send you our love and support.
