On January 10 our beloved 8 year old heeler died very suddenly.  She seemed to be having trouble breathing and standing and shortly after my husband got her to the vet that morning she died.  Our wonderful vet performed a necropsy and found that she bled to death internally.  We have no idea why.  My husband and I are heartbroken.  She was such a good dog (I used to refer to her as my “dang good dog”).  She loved it when I said that to her.  I read Rescuing Sprite when it was first published but I intend to re-read it in hopes of finding comfort.  Thanks for all you do for shelter animals.  We have two more shelter dogs at home and that makes losing our adorable Gypsy bearable.
