Goodbye Beautiful Girl

posted Oct 21, 2011, 2:25 AM by Meredith Norlindh
On the afternoon of Thursday, October 13th, 2011 I finished launching my Labradoodle webpage then piled my dogs into the car for a trip to the vets.  My oldest little friend, Gabby  had been suffering from arthritis and deafness for several years.  Over the summer Gabby's arthritis has worsened and testing showed that her liver was not holding up well with the arthritis medication.  Sadly that car ride in the middle of October was to be my beloved little girls last.  The vet told me that her liver was in failure and that it was time to say goodbye to the scruffy little gray dog who had been my companion and friend for over 13 years.  Gabby was put peacefully to sleep with her head in my hands.  She will be cremated and planted under a tree at our family home.  I will miss her terribly, but it was the right thing to do for her.  RIP Gabriella Myrtle Maud Norlindh.  April 1st 1996- October 13th 2011.
