Very Bad News

Hi all, I haven't updated China & Madie's blog for a while been really busy with moving, settling and having my sister visit. China and Madie really enjoyed her here too they love their Auntie. Well when we came home from the airport late on Tuesday we found China with a severe injury. It's a nightmare to come home as normal and then find a furbaby injured! She had wood impaled in her leg, about and inch thick and 4 inches long. We don't know how she did it we think she was chasing something and got her leg stuck somehow in the gate and freaked out and yanked her leg with the wood. Anyway when we got home the blood was all dried on her too so we don't know how long it had been. We took her to an Emergency Vet but because the injury was so bad (jagged and dried) there wasn't very high chances of it recovering and amputation was possible. China would have hated that, she is the temperament that if she doesn't have all four legs she would get really depressed and miserable, so we made the hard decision to let her go. We've been crying ever since and still in shock. It's so painful to loose a loved one she was special, and always was near me she would even get up if I went to the restroom or just a few feet into the kitchen.
Madie doesn't realize that her sister is gone yet.
We will miss her dearly, she was a huge part of our lives for 9 years.

Oh, no! Please accept our deepest condolences! That is so sad and so scary!
Thank you for the wonderful life you gave her, full of love and wonderful adventures! We once heard Billy Graham answer a question about whether he thought our dogs would go to Heaven. He replied that God loves us and wants us to be happy - and that if having our canine companions with us when we are called Home to Him would give us joy, he thought that yes, God would want us to reunite. We've taken great comfort in that.
Until you meet again - hold those memories close!
With love -
Karen and the Ao4

Thanks everyone, I'm sorry I didn't see your comments sooner I never got the emails for comment moderation and just now when to the blog list area.
Madie seemed to be depressed this last week we had our 10 year anniversary trip this weekend and for the second half we took Madie up to the mountains she had fun, and visited people and other dogs and it helped her feel better. We are trying to keep her from getting too depressed.

Melissa, This is so sad! I'm sorry to hear it. It is so hard to lose a little furbaby. I think that's a perfect thing to call them because they are like furry little kids to us! They are part of the family and it is hard to lose a family member. I hope everyone heals soon from the loss. God bless!

(I got your email and I'm waiting for the proper frame of mind and amount of time to respond)
