Well My Animal Family has gotten smaller unfortunately. We finally had to make that awful decision, The one were we had to let go of our loyal family members. Lacey, our 12 year old white miniature schnauzer had it all. From arthritis, to cancer. Tumors to cataracts. The last week or so she had been limping around on 3 paws. The rest of the time I had to carry her. Her hips coulnt support her anymore and her legs collapsed from under her.My mom went to buy a pair of shoes for me when I was 3 and she came home with a beautiful puppy. That was My Lacey. (4/22/1996 - 7/8/08) Sophie, Our 8 year old White Miniature schnauzer, and Lacey's Daughter also had to be put down . She had this horrid skin condition. it wasnt mange, and it didnt seem like an allergy. She has like...scabs.. covering her entire back. She would itch and itch and itch all the time, it got to be so bad that she would run around the house like she was coming out of her skin, should would try to hide under things. She had this for two years, and we couldnt see her suffer anymore. She was my best friend... she slept with me every night, followed me around, kept me safe when I was home alone. She was always there. When we went to get it done she was in my arms. (9/7/2000 - 7/8/08) Love you girls, Forever.
