    I have not been very active on the site. In june of 2015, our 15 year old border collie passed away. She died in her sleep. She had had a stroke a few days earlier. My mom went in to check on her and she was hot and panting so my mom wiped her with a wet towel to cool her down and then my mom went to check on her and she was dead. We were going to take her in to get her put down and we would have to give her water with a syringe, but she was getting a bit better right before she died. In august of 2015, we adopted a border collie aussie mix puppy named chase. He is going to turn 1 year old on the 30th.
    When you have a 12-inch bowl and a fish that gets up to 15 inches, it's obviously not going to fit.

    she had been around as long as i can remember. When my parents were living in oregon, before i was born, they adopted her. She was 9 months old at the time. She was the runt of a litter of pups on a farm and the runt ended up in the shelter. SOme people adopted her that would keep her in a bathroom all day. They finally brought her back to the shelter and said they could not take care of her. My parents adopted her. They owned their own home, but heidi was wanted by another lady that my dad went to law school with at the time, but she was renting so they let my parents adopt heidi. My parents had bought a house before they moved to oregon, and they were renting it out. After my dad finished law school, they moved back down to that house. A cat lady lived next door and my parents brought in over 30 diseased cats to the shelter. My mom was pregnant with me at the time and The doctor told my mom that she needed to move or i would be born dead because of all of the cat feces and the cat lady lives in a plywood addition on the back of the cathouse and the house is overrun with cats. My parents moved to the house that we are in today. The cats were gone for a while after i called animal services and reported them a few months ago, but the cats are now back. We still rent out that house.

    I'm sorry. It's so hard to lose a pet, especially one so well loved who is truly a part of your life and family.
    Rest peacefully Heidi.

    I am so sorry. I just lost a wonder Aussie named Frodo to cancer last month. I know exactly what you're feeling. Always remember the good times.

    I too am sorry to hear of Heidi's passing; you and your family undoubtedly gave her many years of companionship and enjoyment.

    I hope you don't mind me posting the following, it has helped me and my family and friends when we have lost a furry family member in the past.



    "Dear Lord, please open your gates
    and call St. Francis
    to come escort this beloved companion
    across the Rainbow Bridge.

    Assign him to a place of honor,
    for he has been a faithful servant
    and has always done his best to please me.

    Bless the hands that send him to you,
    for they are doing so in love and compassion,
    freeing him from pain and suffering.

    Grant me the strength not to dwell on my loss.
    Help me remember the details of his life
    with the love he has shown me.
    And grant me the courage to honor him
    by sharing those memories with others.

    Let him remember me as well
    and let him know that I will always love him.
    And when it's my time to pass over into your paradise,
    please allow him to accompany those
    who will bring me home.

    Thank you, Lord,
    for the gift of his companionship
    and for the time we've had together.

    And thank you, Lord,
    for granting me the strength
    to give him to you now.

    Amen.
