R.i.p. Dj

On Oct 19, 2019 my sweet DJ fought her last battle with the bacterial infection that had been taking her down for 5 months. She was on so many different meds, and would have good days and bad days. I honestly had hoped that the good days would start happening more often and maybe staying around longer before the bad days started back, but that's not how it was meant to be, I suppose. She fought so hard right up to the end, then all 4 legs became paralyzed and she could not even hold herself up after I lifted her up. My vet had told me 2 weeks before that she was on borrowed time, but she wasn't showing signs of pain..just frustration. When her eyes told me that she was not only frustrated, but confused as to why her legs no longer worked, and that she was hurting, I knew it was time to make that last trip to her vet's office...a place we had been going nearly every week since this whole ordeal began. I miss her so much. She was one of the best dobermans I had ever had the pleasure of sharing my life with. Run free and be happy DJ.

I'm sorry; that's such a tough decision to make. They're never with us long enough.

Run free, DJ.

Good night DJ. Sleep well and run free. Pain free.

If you run into my boy's over there... Say "Hi" and they will be your friends.

I'm very sorry for your loss.



She is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are her life, her love, her leader.
She will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of her heart. You owe it to her to be worthy of such devotion.
