Heaven has gained a sweet, beautiful angel...
Earlier this evening the vet said Henry was not doing well, and asked me to come in.
Henry had become much worse throughout today & her options were slim. Henry had developed a severe obstruction from whatever she had been eating to survive & was going down hill fast. She developed a huge blockage & it was pressing on her spine, the gas in the stomach was bulging & she was very weak.
I prayed and cried with Henry before I left. She deserved better. We all do. It was decided, to at least attempt the surgery. To give her a chance since euthanasia was the only other option.
Henry did not make it long. She was sedated for anesthesia and faded away quickly.
She was pain free & comfortable.
Our hearts hurt so much... some touch us more than others. She laid there, dying slowly on that dirt road after being neglected and starving for God knows how long. She was alone & exhausted. She was hurting & needed help.
We can not save them all no matter how hard we try sometimes ...we can be decent humans and do our best to prevet such horrible suffering.
I asked for Henry to be cremated & we will bury her here on the ranch in our memorial plot. She deserves this final dignity. 💕
Henry has a long road ahead of her but she is determined and so we fight along with her !!!
Her care will be expensive as she remains hospitalized and still has a serious surgery ahead of her, physical therapy etc.
Every little helps, we assure you no amount is small to giving a new life to Henry.
