April 22, 1991-May 3, 2006
I dedicate this post to my beloved dog, Reba, who had to be put down due to kidney failure on Wednesday. Her sister Trixi was my first dog, given to me on my 13th birthday, when the neighbor's dog had puppies. We got Reba on Valentine's Day 1994 from a family in church who had taken her as a puppy. Trixi was killed by a car on December 23, 1995. And now Reba is gone from us. She had been failing lately. From what I've heard from my parents, her sight and hearing was pretty much gone, and she had trouble eating and digesting food due to the kidney failure. My parents finally took her in to the vet to put her to sleep on Wednesday, after she was gasping for breath. She was buried on my sister and brother-in-law's property in a simple ceremony Wednesday night. Goodbye, Reba.
