Thursday, Feb. 19, 2015 – Good-bye To Our Good Old Girl Marina

Marina's Face!

After much careful consideration and deliberations, Hubby and I agreed it was time to let our good old girl Marina, our yellow lab mix adopted from the Warren County, TN Humane Society back in the summer of 2001 move on to a more restful place. She has been struggling for many months now, and though we held out as long as we could, it had reached the point where she couldn't even stand up, and had to be carried in and out of the RV, barely even able to do her most basic functions. It just wasn't fair to her to keep her going just because we didn't have the courage to put her down, but at last, it was just too much to ask of her. She has had a great life, accomplishing what few dogs could do, traveling to all 48 contiguous states, more than once, and enjoying almost everything in her entire life. We found a quiet place for her to be buried in my brother's yard, and will plant flowers on it when the weather allows. It was a sad and solemn day, but we both know she's better off. Good-bye sweet girl, you're one of the best!
