Cooking will never be the same without my little Chihuahua, Zia, sitting on the floor next to me. She would never leave my side, and when I had to leave her at the house I was told she would lay by the door and wait for my return. She was devoted to me and loved me unconditionally.....a lesson for us all.|
I am so thankful for the time I had with her, but it's never long enough. When she was 9 she began having seizures. She was put on medication for them, and she did pretty well. As she got older the seizures continued and were hard to control. Toward the end we changed her medications to safer ones for her liver, but damage had already been done and she developed (quickly) congestive heart failure. I held her while she passed from this life to the next. It was the hardest decision I ever had to make, but she is at peace now and no longer in pain or struggling to breathe. I look forward to the day we will be together again.
