Today my dog, and best friend, Meja, passed away.
It was her turn to go an join the other angels waiting for her.
She was a beauty straight into the end. Always intelligent. Always alert. Always kind.
The last thing she did before her final breath was to look at me and with all her might she tried to rise her head.
To kiss away my tears.
She became 12 years old.
She suffered from a disease she got 1 year ago that made her lose 10 pounds.
After that she never regained her muscles again, no matter how much medication,exercise and food we gave her.
Slowly but surely she lost the ability to walk, stand and in the end even sit up.
The only thing she could do was to lie down while watching her friends run around. Being worried about her.
We tried our best, she tried her best. But one day your best will not be enough. And then you have to let go, let her sleep.
You tried your best my love, I will be forever be proud of you. ♥
Meja was a mighty white King Poodle. The biggest of her kind, yet she was always elegant.
She was a true beauty and won every contest she entered up to the age of 2.
Where she got cancer in her uterus. And the only way to survive was to remove it.
So unfortunately we couldn´t bring her out on contests anymore, or have some puppies from her.
But her beauty was still not unnoticed. Commercial workers noticed her and she ended up on big posters around Sweden for the shop Pandora Hobby.
As a puppy and young dog she was very disobedient.
She knew all the tricks I taught, as she was smart. But her smartness became a trouble.
She tried to run away from home, a lot. (A common habit King Poodle shares) And she was a perfect jumper. She could jump over anything.
She was not fond of humans as young. She would only stick to me and my father. She neglected my mother for many years until she finally accepted her.
She became more mature and accepting with age. Cuddling with everyone she saw.
Never has she bitten any other dog.
These last 4 years when we moved to the dog hotel, has she been able to freely run over 2 miles worth of grass and nature. No leash. Just her, freedom and her friends.
A life worthy of a girl with such energy in her legs.
She might have become more mature, but she kept her bad puppy habits.
Just 2 days ago, she managed to grab my shoes and eat them half up.
It felt like it was her last little prank, her way to say Good bye. Don´t forget me.
And I surley won´t. She was the most wonderful dog and friend.
Been through with me for 12 whole years. Since I was 7 years old.
And she will still stay with me. In my heart, for even more years to hopefully come.
Thank you Meja, for being there.
I love you, and Good night, have wonderful dreams my love.
