Oh MaryLou I am so sorry but you did the right thing you do no want to see her suffer.  She has been with you for a long time it is awful when you loose your best friend.  It is going to take a long time to adjust without her.

Daisy did have a good life with you I am sure other dogs would have been jealous that they are living with you.

General Discussion & Introductions / Life Changes!

It's so difficult to change your daily habits after 11 years, but sometimes you have no choice.  That's what I am doing now, trying to figure out what I'm supposed to do when I get up in the morning, etc.

My Daisy crossed over the Rainbow Bridge this last Tuesday.  It was a difficult decision and one I certainly didn't want to make, but I didn't want to see her suffering. She lost her eyesight earlier this year and was having trouble adjusting to where things were in the house.  I did everything I could to help her find things.  To make matters worse, she also had diabetes.  When she refused to eat food, I knew her system was shutting down. Took her to the vet Tuesday but came home alone.  The vet said they could keep her alive for a bit longer if they put her in the hospital and started an IV and then start with insulin shots twice a day.  I asked if that would make her better. She was honest and said no, it would only prolong her life for a short time.  She asked me if I had considered the alternative.  I knew what she meant and said yes, I had. She said it would be the best thing for her as she would have no more pain and wouldn't  suffer.  So, once again, life changes.

I have not come home without an animal to greet me in the last 16 years.  The home feels so empty.  No toys to pick up, no meals to fix, no one to wake me up in the mornings and all the other little things that one does daily when they have pets.  So, the "empty nest" syndrome is having its effect.  Will take some time to adjust, especially to the quiet.. but I will.  People have suggested that I get another dog or cat but I won't be doing that.  Not at my age, and I don't want to go through losing another one.   

Daisy had a good life.  Was very spoiled and had everything a dog could want so I can  take comfort in knowing I did my best for her.  She was such a little sweetie and very much missed.

You HAVE to post pictures!   We all want to see the new kitchen!  Mine was like yours, a whole lot of work and time involved, then learning to operate the new appliances but..  if I had to do it all over again,  would I?  In a heart beat!!  I LOVE my kitchen.  I like working in it.  Makes me feel like a wanna be chef!    :brav01:

Enjoy your trip... Canada is a beautiful place to visit!  :praise53:

Wow!!  Teejay, you've got a real gem  there!  Glad all went well for you.  It's no fun when you have to fight to make things work.   I do like Win 10, but it wants to do too much for me, things that I would rather not do!  However, as long as it lets me do my thing, I can live with it.

Majse, when you get a program like AVG that works well, don't change it!  That's when people get into trouble.   :laugh1:

so  you  remember how I had so much trouble with an update ..not this big one..but the one before
and I dragged that nice young man in and he helped me sort it .

he also stopped the updates Ö this was because my pc was too old for the updates Ö that's what HP told me .

so imagine my fright when I walked into the room and an update was in progress ..
it took an hour ( i have superfast broadband ) and i am now the very proud owner of my old HP desktop with the latest windows update
it went smoothly...oh my god... i was having kittens...lol

yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa   :yes03: :smiley01: :praise53:
