goodbye cusi dog


We had to make the decision to get Cusi dog put down yesterday. She never did quite recover from when she was hit by a car a couple of months ago, and with her old age amongst other things, it was her time. We spent one last day with her, took her to the beach for a swim, as that was her absolute most favorite thing to do. Then for lunch she had her own meat pie and when we got home, a wash after her swim at the beach, and she had her own roast chicken for dinner. We gave her big hugs and thanked her very much for all her wonderful years she gave us. She was nearly 14. We miss you Cusi Dog. We miss her sitting under Tilly's chair waiting for dropped food, we miss –in Olympia's words– 'her lovely footsteps across the kitchen floor', her waggy tail, her kind eyes. x

I'm so sorry to hear about Cusi Dog. How did she come about her name? Your description of her last day made me a bit tearful - I'm sure she couldn't have wished for a better day. Debbie

I'm sorry to hear about your loss. Dogs are the sweetest loves...I hope you will be consoled by all the good memories, and many thanks to you for treating her to such a wonderful last day of earthly life. May we all have such good things at the end.

We lost our dog this year and we weren't lucky enough to have that last day with her, but it sounds both beautiful and harrowing at the same time. It's so tough and we still really miss our dog too, but I am sure you will take comfort in the memories of the joy that she brought to your family for so many years.

I am so sorry about the loss of your beloved Cusi. I came across your fabulous website looking at stylefile.com and then decided to look at your blog. I have 2 dogs, and they are family members to me, we love them very much :) Your words made me cry, I am so glad there are warm hearted people like you in the world to show animals such love. You gave her such a beautiful end.
