Janie had been unwell for some time and was struggling terribly. The vet had said to me in August last year that Janie would be lucky to get another 6 months...as it turned out, she held on for another 7 months. It is believed she had degenerative myelopathy and she was at the stage where she could hardly walk, her breathing was laboured and her appetite had decreased. I had hesitated for so long as I could not bear making the decision, however, in the end I had to think of what was best for Janie. Even though the vet told me on the day that I was doing the right thing, it was still heartbreaking.
I miss Janie so much. She was my first rescue dog (8 years ago this month) and has such a special place in my heart. I want to thank VicDRG for rescuing her so that she could have a happy life with me. She brought me so much joy and unconditional love.
