CANDY FARINAS Jan. 7, 1996 - April 28th, 2009
I lost one of my babies yesterday. It was so awful. Candy has always been such a sweet dog, such a loyal and loving "child". She had a quirky personality. Didn't really like everyon - especially kids! She adored my son Charlie and with me she was the best. Her and Cindy (my 13 year old chihuahua) have always been inseparable and Cindy spent the entire night last night looking for Candy and crying when she couldn't find her. Candy died of a heart condition. We were in the car on the way to the vet and she had very labored breathing. I'm convinced she knew she was dying. While on the way to the vet she climbed onto my lap and stood on her hind legs to cuddle in my neck - something she always did when she was scared. All of a sudden she starts to bleed from her mouth and nose. I stopped the car - hysterically crying by this time - and just petted her on my lap until she died. Such an awful experience. But at least I was holding and loving her when she took her last breath.
