Squeeky Belle Winky - August 29, 1993 to February 7, 2011
Squeeky Belle Winky
Squeeky was rescued from a llama farm when she was only 2 months old.
The vet was not sure she would make it through the night as she had an
upper respiratory infection and had already lost her left eye. She fought
through and became a part of my life, and my furry companion. She would
spend some time outside, but only when we were outside with her - so she
never wandered far, but still got to enjoy the smell of fresh air and
swatting at bugs.
In her older years, she just enjoyed sitting by the
fire, or in the sunny spot in the house, and getting her fur brushed.
Around her 14th birthday she was diagnosed with IBD. After several vet
visits and many rounds of food trial and errors, we got settled on a
food and pred routine that kept her IBD under control and Squeeky
healthy and happy. In January 2011, at her geriatric exam, her bloodwork
indicated something was not quite right. After a few more vet visits
and tests and scans, we received the diagnosis of lymphoma on January
28. We increased her pred dosage and had just started chemo (she only
had one dose because we needed to have it compounded for her), before
she passed away on Monday, February 7.
I miss her terribly and feel as
though I failed to see the signs sooner. She passed away on her own, and
we were with her in her waning moments. Rest in peace my sweet girl.
