My sweet little Nixie


It seems like only yesterday that we brought her home as a tiny little puppy. She was the runt of the litter, which was the only way we were going to have a full-bred Boxer! She never did get to be full Boxer size. She was blind in one eye, too, but we didn't see her flaws, we just saw her as our cool new dog!

Now four years later, she is gone. She had been losing weight, so Chris took her to the vet on Monday. He asked for bloodwork to be done, and his feeling that something was wrong was correct....her kidneys were failing. Since she was always kept in the pen, the vet thinks that it was just something genetic.

So he took her back today to relieve her of her misery. I can't believe we've lost two dogs in less than a year. It breaks my heart!

Please pray for us while we deal with the loss of a dearly loved family member!
