My heart is broken and my chest is heavy. Today my husband and I had to make the decision to put our 13-1/2 year old bully to rest. She was such an integral part of our lives. I credit her long life to ditching kibble and store treats for human grade foods and home made treats. She LOVED my cookies, almost as much as she loved my husband. The last week saw her lose interest in food and she was becoming incontinent. She aged quite a bit over the last 2 years, losing sight in one eye and hearing loss. But she still wanted to be with us and go out with us. However, it was clear yesterday that she no longer had quality of life and we had yo make the dreaded decision. As much as I want yo have her laying on her “spot” on the couch, I know she’s in a better place. Rest easy Giz.

I’m so sorry for your loss of your adorable girl! She was beautiful.
13.5 years is great, you gave her a great life and AMAZING food and treats to make that happen.

Rest easy sweet girl

My deepest condolences on the loss of your pup. I had to let go of Porkchop just 2 weeks ago and I still feel an emptiness in the house. Yet I remember the laughs and joy he gave me and what a funny guy he was. You'll remember those things with Isabella and smile from time to time. She was a beautiful babe! RIP Isabella.

She was a beautiful girl. You did right by her letting her go when it was time. All good Bulldog parents know...
Rest in peace, Isabella.
