My dog died today. Her name was Little Shannon, she was a Chihuahua, lived 16 years and 7 months. She was diagnosed with kidney failure around 2 and a half years ago, then with a neurological disorder that made her unsteady on her feet. Two days ago she stopped eating and showed no interest in what was going on around her. Yesterday I decided to put her down, and I was too late, when I got up this morning she was dead.
