Our little Min Pin, Bridget, passed away early Sept 16. We loved her a lot and she loved us. I think she had a good life in the 12 years she was with us. She was diabetic, and had to have insulin shots with her meals twice a day, for many years. She became blind with cataracts, and that made her timid about stairs, and about jumping off the bed. We nearly lost her last summer - the vet thought she wouldn't make it through the night, but she rallied. Finally, her kidneys failed.
