I got a heart-wrenching call this evening. We had just walked in the door when my mom called. She says, "I've got something to tell you that I don't want to tell you, but Andy made me call..." Andy is my stepfather, so I've got all these things running through my head.
My mom tells me that they had to put Shayna down yesterday afternoon. I had no idea what to say. I reminded her that we spoke this morning and that she said nothing about it. She didn't want to ruin my weekend.
Shayna was the best dog ever! If anyone were to ever want to clone a dog, she would have been the one to clone. She had massive personality. She knew when I was on the phone. She knew when I was coming over. She knew everything!! And she always liked to Ham it up for the camera. She loved her picture being taken!
She used to lick off my Popsicles because as you know, dogs have the cleanest mouths ever! She used to paw at my eyes to wake me up when I spent the night.
Shayna was a very awesome dog. There aren't enough words in the world to describe her. I've never had a dog quite like her at all... Shayna was 13 years old. She was diagnosed with Diabetes the week before I moved. She hadn't eaten in three days and had lost over 10 pounds...
And then there's poor Kari. Here are a couple of old pictures of the two of them together. Kari doesn't understand where Shayna is. My Mom says she's been very clingy and quiet. I'm sure she'll be ok.
Goodbye, Shayna... I'll miss you!!
