On Monday 9 February, we took Dusty to the vet and poor Dusty was euthanized. She was a lot sicker than we realized. She had lost weight (6lbs to be exact) and was leaving little sticky spots on the floor. As it turned out she had advanced diabetes and a bladder infection. Because Dusty was 16 years old, the vet stated that we could invest a lot of money in her but it might only be for a very short time. So we made the decision to give her a pain free life and she was put to rest on Tuesday 9 February. She will be missed greatly in our household.
