Today has been a sad day. After having this little dog in our family for over 13 years, we had to put her to sleep. Little Smudgie had a great life with us. She was spoiled and loved. By our estimates, she was 15 or 16...she had out-lived her life expectancy. We feel blessed to have had her for so long. It's rough losing a pet...but we are pretty sure she is hanging out with Grandma McClintic in Heaven...Smudge had a special bond with my mom and the feeling was mutual:) Rest in Peace sweet dog.
