Goodbye, Daisy Mae

Taking a day off from a fashion related post to pay tribute to our sweet Bassett Hound, Daisy, that we had to let go tonight. We knew she was struggling with arthritis in her back legs, but after two days of not eating (and she was a big fan of eating), we knew something more was wrong. It turns out she had cancer. She had masses in her chest, abdomen, and spine. It then caused pancreatitis and she also showed signs of having major infections. Despite all of this, she didn't show any signs of distress other than not having an appetite. She was such a strong willed dog.

She was 12 years old and lived a full life. Probably one of the most laziest dogs you will ever meet, but she was so sweet and quirky. And her lil sis adored her and will be lost without her because Daisy was her security blanket. We were by her side when she took her last breaths, and while it was the saddest of sadness I have ever felt, I am glad she was not alone. We will always love you, Daisy Mae, and are relieved that you are no longer suffering.

Hold your animals close today and always.

Daisy Mae
