I know we haven’t been keeping this blog up to date, but in case there’s anyone out there still following, I wanted to let you know that we had to let China go yesterday. She contracted Lyme disease about a month ago – the worst case the vet has ever seen – and over the weekend she went into acute renal failure.
We adopted China on December 7, 2002 and the past 9 years of our lives have been enriched because of her presence. She did everything with us including camping trips, vacations and everything in between. Although she was never a cuddler – in fact, she pretty much hated to be touched, although she would put up with it – we knew she loved us.
It’s going to be very hard living without her but we know that we did what was best for her. The only thing worse then putting China to sleep was watching her suffer.
We’ll always love you puppy.
