Unhappy Putting our first "baby" to sleep....

..on Friday.

Annie is a border collie (mostly black with white markings) that was born a week before Nick and I were married and we got her at 3 months. She'll have turned 15 the end of May.

Gradually over the last 6 months, she had lost her sight, arthritis has really set in and it seems she's no longer getting nutrition from her food. She's lost over 20 pounds in the last 6 months. Her normal weight is around 55, but she's down to 38.

It breaks our hearts to put her to sleep but I'd rather not watch her get any worse. She won't even play too much cause she hits everything in her path.

We're gonna tell Taylor Thursday night so we can say our goodbyes and I'm gonna give her one last bath. I need her to be clean for it, for some strange reason.

DH is taking Annie to the vet after we leave for work/preschool Friday morning.
