Tara died last night.

We came home from work and she was dead. I knew her time was soon and had actually decided yesterday that it was time to put her to sleep. She had cancer. I knew that when she stopped retrieving that the end was near. This morning she didn't even want to go for a walk. She hadn't eaten much in quite awhile and she was skin and bones. I just knew it was time.

She was an Irish Water Spaniel. I used to call her my curly haired boxer. Her breed was well named as she just loved water. Her favorite thing was retrieving and preferably in water. She was wonderful girl and was so well behaved. She was the best puppy and the easiest dog to house train. She dived into the water at 8 weeks of age and never looked back. I hope there is lots of water and balls at the Rainbow Bridge.

God speed sweet girl! Rest in peace. I will see you again some day.

Ah how sad,I am so sorry for your loss.
Being the good girl that she was she took that final phone call to the vet out of your hands.
God speed sweet Tara you can now swim and chase ball like you are an eight week old puppy again.

I'm so sorry for your loss. Although it sounds like her health had diminished significantly, it has still got to be very difficult for you. Hopefully you can concentrate on the good times you had with her.
