"Beware of anyone selling a 'double merle' - dog where both parents are / carry Merle. In Australian Shepherds these dogs are often deaf, or blind and deaf, and have a host of other health problems."

Goodbye Lucy

Posted on June 3, 2017 at 3:56am 19 Comments

We said goodbye to our Lucy yesterday.  She was 4.5 years old.  The house is so empty and quiet this morning.  No clicking of her paws to the floor, no whimper to go outside, no morning walk, no flipping of the dog bowl for breakfast.  But she is free of pain from her awful disease.  I am so heartbroken.
