    Default RIP Sweet Julie

    My sister's Lhasa Apso Julie (AKA "Jewels") passed away this afternoon at about 1:30.

    We'd just stopped by a friends apartment after taking her in her stroller for a walk along the river. When we got inside, we put her on the floor, she twitched a bit and then she was gone. Very quiet and peaceful ... she enjoyed a beautiful morning by the river and was surrounded by people who loved her.

    Julie had cancer and was 15.5 years old. Julie was our mom's dog and when my mom was no longer well enough to take care of Julie, a relative agreed to take care of her. Unfortunately, Julie suffered horribly in their care and was infested with fleas and had lost half her hair. We found about how bad it was two years ago when the relative said it was time to put Julie to sleep and we asked our Aunt to go and rescue her. Our aunt has been involved in rescue for many years and said she had never seen a case of neglect as bad as Julies.

    Here are a few pictures of sweet Julie:

    After she was rescued by our aunt. Her hair is shaved here. She looks sad, but much better than when she was initially rescued:

    RIP Sweet Angel dog.

    I've read in a couple of places about Julie's passing with almost a dry eye (I'm just so glad she passed so quickly and peacefully and relieved Lynn of the duty of taking her to the vet's office) but you did me in Lani with the pictures. As long as I live I will never forget Julie. Her pictures of how she came to you all are forever burned into my mind of what a whole lot of TLC can do for a dog. I always think of her as the little miracle girl. She was such a pitiful little wreck and blossomed into such a little beauty. The picture of her with Lucky and Razz really shows how beautiful she was. Rest well little Jewels, I'm glad you were so loved. We should all be so blessed.

    Bless her I'm pleased for your sister that Julie went peacefully and saved her from having to make that horrid decision.

    It sounds like her last day was perfect - a wonderful memory to treasure.

    A very special wee girl - who suffered so much and recovered to become a perfect little lady.

    We are thinking of you all.

    Thanks so much for sharing these wonderful photos and for reminding us all of Julie's story. It is also a reminder to all of us to make arrangements before we die for someone to provide a home for our pets and to make certain the person(s) we select are willing and give them the love and care we would want. Sometimes, if family is not available, then the best is to find a good quality rescue group to be in charge of finding them a new family. No shame in that.

    Hugs to you and your sister!
