Dot and Sixty
|I got Sixty 3 weeks after losing our 2 Boys. We were heart broken and
had no thoughts of getting another dog. We were out driving in the country
when we came across an animal shelter, we decided to pop in and have a
look, and this 10 week old puppy came up to me (She was so thin and she
had been ill treated ) and I said to my Late Husband that I wanted her.
( he couldn't refuse me anything) The person in charge said she was £60
and that's what we paid for her and my husband said we will call her Sixty
Quid, Sixty for short.
When I lost my husband 5 yrs ago she helped me come to terms with it.
Last year she was very ill for 6 months with campler bacteria
and she had to take 4 courses of antibiotics before we got rid of it.
The week before Easter 2005 she started vomiting and the vet admitted
her to hospital with pancreatitis. On Easter Sunday they rang me and told
me that my beloved Sixty had diabetes. I started crying because I thought
that she would have to be put to sleep. I went straight up there and the
vet explained that he had put her on insulin and I would have to learn
how to give injections. (I haven't had a problem with injections.
) She was in the hospital for 8 day's and they were the longest 8 day's
of my life.
