Lost Shasta today : (
Our oldest Sheltie that was diagnosed with Kidney Failure and Heart Failure almost a year ago died today. She was 14. She stopped eating yesterday and today she wouldn't even drink water so I knew it was getting very close. She didn't seem to be suffering, just wanted to rest.
We bought her from a family in Ava when she was a puppy. On the drive home when we were trying to decide on a name, I was looking through a plant catalog and that's where the idea for "Shasta" came from, although I honestly can't remember whether I saw a picture of Shasta Daisies or a Shasta viburnum. Nevertheless, I think I might move a start of Shasta Daisies out to the spot where we buried her.
Here's a link to an older thread where I posted a photo of our dogs. She's on the lower right. We still have the other two. This is the one with the true story of Jackson the "stray dog". We still haven't told. lol
Here is a link that might be useful: thread from 09
