Ruthie

We had to put Ruthie to sleep this morning. She could hardly walk, she was pretty much blind, and she just wasn't happy. It was the right decision. She was 11 1/2, a good age for a Saint. She was the sweetest dog in the whole wide world.

OH my Phyllis........ first, I'm so very sorry. What a shocker. She will forever be a young dog in my mind. I remember when you got her.
My condolances to everyone.

So sorry about Ruthie. We are holding our breathe with our Smitty. It'll be 15 years since we got him, a pound dog, already an adult. He's deaf, can't see so good, weak in the legs, but so far still loving his short walks into the yard. Hope we'll know the right time. hugs.
