It was a sad day at The Aerie Tuesday as we made the choice to put our wonderful old dog Eutaw to sleep. Over the last few weeks, she’d developed a very aggressive tumor in her mouth and jaw that quickly outpaced our ability to remedy it. A small blessing was that she was in real discomfort for only a few days.
She was a remarkable dog – we called her a Miracle of Nature – and she was the Beloved’s friend and companion for sixteen and a half years. I was lucky enough to have her be a part of my life for the last five or six years.
Her most amazing achievement may have been turning this old guy that’d never had a pet in his life into a dog-lover.
Bye Brownie, you will be missed.
