A very sad day. Penny, my family’s nearly 10-year-old rescue dog was put to sleep today after being diagnosed with pericardial effusion. Yesterday she could not even stand. Our only regret is not knowing Penny earlier. The first 5 years of her life she was confined to a garage. Her first owners did not abuse her, but didn’t provide much affection either. Golden Retriever Rescue Southern Nevada let my parents adopt her.
A big thank you to Dr Costa at the Spencer Springs Animal Hospital for being so empathetic. I also loved the poster in one of exam rooms: ‘Dogs fill an empty space we didn’t know we had.’
So sad, but so grateful. To friends with pets, please give them an extra hug today.
