Today I had to put down my best friend and companion since 2001. Sophie was a great dog, a bit energetic wanting to play catch all the time, but still a great dog. She has been sick for a couple of weeks, and wasn't eating or drinking. The vet said Pancreatits. She didn't show any signs of discomfort except for moving every once in a while when she was laying down. She was not nearly as active as she usually was this past weekend.
God love her, she was willing to play catch right up until the end, even though it was obvious she had alot of discomfort.
I'm going to miss you Sophie, but I'm sure you are up in doggie heaven pestering those around you to throw the ball.
