Blue 11/30/94- 7/9/05
On Jan 19th 1995 we Brought home a cute little Puppy. Just as a
wiggly fluff ball of fur. With the biggest eyes and the silkiest
ears. It was love at first site for us both.
During the ride in the car...that puppy cried and whimpered and
cried some more all the way home. Thus why we named her Misty and
her two gorgeous blue eyes gave us her middle name of Blue
So Misty-Blue was ours to raise,love and adore till death do us
part. She was a Blue Merle COLLIE mixed with Huskey Thus the one
blue eye brown eye which is the mark of a true Huskey.
She Loved the cold Cleveland winters here.
She use to love making nose prints in the fresh fallen snow. The
heat wave we are having here this summer, she would have hated. She
was a winter dog and loved eating snowballs.
Today when we went to the Vets office to carry her ashes to the car
10 years later, it was my turn to cry my eyes out all the way home.
They say what goes around comes around. Well that fact hit us hard
Misty was never a healthy dog. In 1995 we found out she had
epilepsy.. Ok we had her on meds for that. Then in 2004 we found out
her meds for her epilepsy was compromising her liver.. So she
developed liver hepatitis. Ok we got that under control.. The
hepatitis had her legs at a constant stage of wobble's It was hard
for her to take 3 steps into the house let alone at times even
harder for her to pee.
But we thought she was getting better till the day it all fell
It all started on Thursday July 7th when she refused to eat for the
first time in her life we knew something was not kosher. She was our
chow hound and would eat just about anything even lettuce!
So anyway We called the Vet the next day and scheduled an appt for
July 9th To make a longer story shorter. We found out that our baby
had a stroke and her complete central Nervous system had shut down.
And waiting the hours that we did would not have mattered at all.
Cause We did think of taking her to ER that same Thurs. But ER would
never have access to her complete medical history.
And we wanted her to be with her own DR. And her own DR agreed that
the wait made no difference at all. But anyway, when we brought her
in Sat morning My husband had to carry her in. By that time she was
barley breathing, And She was very incoherent...The saddest thing of
it all was that she did not even know where she was or who we were.
She could not walk, speak, or eat. Her Dr said there was nothing he
could do that would improve her quality of life. Even If we had
spent a million dollars it would only be for our sake and not hers.
We just then knew it was her time to be with the lord in puppy
heaven. Now she is free and No more pills to take. No more "swallow
it" We use to joke if anyone heard that out of context, boy would we
be in trouble.
But at one point my poor Misty Blue was taking SIX different
medications a DAY!
our hearts still ache for her just the same. She was the love of our
lives and with us half our marriage. She was like our daughter and
she can never be replaced NEVER!! She was one of a kind. and
everywhere we took her we all got the same responses of "OH what a
beautiful dog" Now I will NEVER hear those words again. Misty was my
heart and I feel part of me is gone too. I even had to change my
e-mail address. But I still see it in the computer and it still
hurts so much.
Whereever you are Misty always know mommy & daddy love you and miss
you with all our hearts
Someday we will see you again on that famous Rainbow bridge.
We love you.....Always
Mommy & Daddy
