Sleep Well My Sweet Girl Mindy - Feb 98 - Mar 10

We knew this day would come sooner rather than later but it doesn't make it any easier. Mindy's tumour was starting to make her breathing laboured and we decided she had had enough. She spent the last 12 years attached to my hip. Even though she was the quietest dog the house seems so quiet without her.

Nearly as hard as letting her go was calling the boys. One of the things my own parents do that angers me is not tell me things I think I should know (like when my mom has open heart surgery for instance) and I never want to be that parent. I'm glad Engineering Guy had been able to be home for the weekend.

Again, I'm so sorry to hear about Mindy. :( I had hoped you'd have longer with her, but I suppose no amount of time would ever be long enough. :( it was obvious how much you loved her, and Mindy was a lucky doggy to be placed in such a wonderful home with such a loving mommy <3 :) Rest in Peace, Mindy! :) ((Hugz)) to all of you.. Thinkin about you!

Mindy was such a lovely regal lady from her pictures and even when meeting her. Your written words just speak volumes of your love for her. Rest in peace Mindy; I am sure you were given an amazing life with this great family
