Preparing for the death of a pet.

….when I heard the words I did not want to hear, my heart broke

Preparing for the death of a pet is never easy.

When I picked Bindi up from the vet on Friday I was steeling myself for bad news but when I heard the words I did not want to hear my heart broke.

Bindi an Australian Shepherd


Bindi came into my life just after I moved to Portland, a rescue dog who rescued me.

You can read Bindi’s story here


Over the past couple of months Bindi has become unwell. Slow, unable to jump up into the car for her rides, feeling the heat, drinking more water, lost weight….

A check up revealed anaemia and an enlarge liver so we booked in for a diagnostic ultrasound. Nodules on her liver have answered the questions to her rapid decline in condition

Bindi is 10 and a half and I honestly thought she would be with us for a few more years yet but it is not to be.

I have no idea how long we have with our darling girl. The vet says days,maybe weeks. Bindi can put on an impressive sad face and at the vets was almost limp on the table on Friday. Just now she has checked the Guinea pigs with me and then jogged of with purpose to check her chooks.
