Lauren was given her wings to save her from further suffering as the pain from CM/SM was becoming increasingly difficult to manage.
Lauren had the Chiari malformation and syrinxes the length of her spine; believed to have been exacerbated by our exposure to chronic carbon monoxide poisoning over a period of several years
From the moment she was born I knew she would be stopping with us - I had really wanted a Tricolour girl. She was very special to me from the moment of her birth. It took a long time for my husband to bond with her, but she eventually worked her magic on him too. We are both devastated at losing our beautiful, precious girl. It was the hardest decision to make but the most loving one.
Sadly Lauren was attacked a Golden Retreiver when she was just a puppy, this left her with a fear of other dogs, with the help of a behaviourist and training we did get her more confident around some dogs, but it was always difficult.
I feel overwhelmed with sadness at her loss, she was my 'heart' dog. Because she had been so poorly, she was very clingy and wanted to be with me all the time, so it's really hard as I am constantly looking for her.
I will put up some photos later.
