Little did I think, when I wrote about her in this post, that it would soon be time to bid her goodbye.
Tutu, our beloved dog, my parent’s dog, but that did not make her any less beloved for daughter and me, passed away yesterday. She hadn’t been well, she caught some infection, which apparently has been going around there. My parents tried everything they could. The poor thing had multiple injections every day, and yet nothing seemed to help. It was just her time, as my dad says.
I guess we were lucky to get a few years with her, but Daughter, is inconsolable. She is distraught, and very upset. I guess, it will take her time to understand and accept. And remember Tutu for wonderful doggy friend she was!
Rest in Peace, Tutu, we will always remember you. Your boundless energy, your excitement, your furious barking at strangers, and people on motorbikes, and of course, your smile.
As Daughter says, if only we could stroke her once, before she died, but since we can’t, we will be looking at her pictures, and remembering the fun times.
