Dedicated to Ruby special friend

Hi everyone. I write this blog tonight through tears so forgive me if the grammar is off a bit. I may be losing my dog. My friend Ruby has been in my life for 16 years....that's right.....16 years. Crazy, huh? I rescued her from the SPCA in Fredericksburg in the spring of 95 when she was a young puppy. She has "outlived" lovers, friends, jobs, houses, and all the changes both good and bad that occur in life over a period that long. She witnessed my college graduation, my divorce, the birth of my daughter, and the beginning and end of my relationship with who I thought was the love of my life....she was always matter what. She never judged me...never held grudges..kissed my face while I cried over the little tragedies life threw at me...and loved me unconditionally no matter how much of a jerk I was being..and always made me feel special. I owe her so much. The amount of happiness she brought me over the years is immeasurable. I am coming to the point where I have to decide to let her go..and it is killing me. She has survived and been through so much. A bout with breast cancer, a tumor removed from her mouth 3 times because it kept growing back, countless injuries and near death from a lump removal....and through it all remained tough as nails and gentle as a butterfly. She never harmed anyone, always the most angelic soul I had ever encountered. I will miss her terribly. This afternoon she began shaking and acting disoriented. She fell in the kitchen and could not get up on her own. I am taking her to see my vet tomorrow morning to see what they recommend. I do not want her to suffer....she doesn't deserve that. I am hoping for a miracle...but if I can't get least I will know that she had a great life....she knew she was loved and cherished....and she will never be forgotten. I love you Red!! My special friend...if tomorrow is your time I will miss you my sweet girl
 *update 1:40 am....just got back from the emergency hospital. She died in my arms. The last thing she did was lick the tears from my face. I will miss you my dearest friend

As Ruby's "grandparents" we will also miss her. We remember the visits; the walks - which she led and during which she decided when to return; the meetings in the kitchen when Nana was cooking. It is always difficult when losing a special friend, especially one that had been part of the family for such a long time. Good Bye Good Girl. Nana and Opa.

This is so sad. You're very lucky to have a dog with you for 16 years. I had a dog but he stayed with me for only 3 years. This is so heartbreaking.

An attention-grabbing dialogue is price comment. I think that you should write more on this matter, it might not be a taboo subject however typically individuals are not enough to speak on such topics. To the next. Cheers

The picture is an excellent touch and the content that it complements is equally quite endearing. The tone of the writer is also wonderful. Excellently done.
