My in-laws called us last night to let us know that their golden retriever Kate had died. She was 11 1/2 years old and had suffered from hip dysplasia for many years.
DFIL gave her a spa day yesterday: bath, nail trim and comb out. They were headed out for a short walk and she ran ahead of him, which is unusual for her. When he caught up to her, she was lieing in the grass, dead. :(
Although she wasn't our dog, she was our surrogate furkid until we got our own. She couldn't always keep up with our dogs but she loved to play with them in the back yard.
It's so unfair that we so often outlive our pets.
