She was my first female dog.
I've always had male dogs, at least since I've been an adult.
I don't know why.
I've had labs before the pointers and they were neutered males too.
Spirit was very "girly".
Such a gentle little lady.
Dexter liked her too, but after she was here a few months, I could tell that she became the dominant dog.
Dexter would definitely let her have her way if there was a difference in opinion.
No growling, no snarling, just a look.
Spirit was a gentle, pure soul.
She went to Heaven this past Tuesday.
I thought I was prepared because she had been diagnosed with inoperable lung cancer 4 months ago and the chemo and other treatments didn't do anything to slow it down.
I thought I was more prepared to make that horrible decision when she began to feel badly and began to lose all the weight.
I thought . . . .
But I was wrong.
She went off into Heaven so peacefully.
I can only believe that she is now pain free and can run and play and breathe easily.
Mommy will see you again "little girl".
I know you'll be waiting with Rocky and Monk.
I love you.
