Indra - In Memoriam

Indra, our Canadian Shepherd, White Shepherd, 1,5 years old

It’s been a while since my last blog post and a lot has happened. The most important and very sad thing is that our beloved, beautiful girl, Indra, has died last Friday, November 15.

Indra was an amazing dog; to us she was the most beautiful, sweetest and funniest dog you can imagine (of course, every dog owner will say the same about his/her dog).

For 12,5 years she was our travel companion and our friend. She loved playing with balls and sticks, loved hiding games and chasing cats. She loved our travels and always liked to explore new terrain with my hubby.  

Indra - travel buddy

Indra was our loyal and enthusiastic travel companion. She has probably seen more countries than a lot of people . I think Greece and Oman were 2 of her favorites.

Indra was an old lady already and we knew she wouldn’t be with us for very long. She had arthritis and her hips started to bother her. But she was still happy to be with us.
Suddenly, Friday afternoon she got very very sick (volvulus syndrome). As she was already 12,5 years of age, an operation was not an option. So we had to put her to sleep.
In a strange sense, next to the pain, we were relieved. As the decision to put her to sleep was made for us; there was no other option.
For some time now we were struggling with the question when we should make this decision, as she had problems with her legs and she got other problems related to her age as well.

We feel comfort in the knowledge she is now at peace and does not feel any pain anymore.
We know we did the best thing and we know it was her time, but still, we miss her terribly.

Indra, I hope you have a lot of fun in doggy heaven,  playing with rabbits and cats and sticks and balls. We love you and we miss you.
