|I'm not sure why her tail is naked here... I think it got shaved for some reason, but it was usually a puffy Sheltie tail.|
Jenny was my dad's dog for the most part. She went to work with him just about every day of her life. In her younger days, she spent her time barking at squirrels or big 18 wheelers that passed by the fence on the road. Jenny loved to go boating, especially with my dad. She would bark away while riding in the boat.
Jenny became sick one day and was having trouble standing with her front legs She would just kind of slide forward with them. She lost her appetite and I told my dad that if he was ready, he could bring her to my work for euthanasia. I had been working at the clinic for about a year at that point in time.
I assisted with her euthanasia and held her during the procedure. My parents didn't want to be present for it, and I wasn't sure what to expect myself. I was used to euthanasias, but I had never had one of my own pets euthanized as an adult before. It was very sad, but I know it was Jenny's time to go and I am glad I was there for her at the end. Today, her gravestone is a small statue of a squirrel. She left us with many great memories!
