The Masterpiece by Javan

The Masterpiece by Javan

We are born into the world like a blank canvas and each person that crosses our path takes up the brush and makes his mark upon our surface

So it is that we develop

But we must realize there comes a day that we must take up the brush and finish the work

For only we can determine if we are to be just another painting or a Masterpiece. Javan

Our Sweet Baby Girl Casey Has Left Us

We lost our little warrior princess, Casey Gail (Cairncroft's Nightingale) on June 20th. 
  She has left a very big void in our hearts and in our home.
  Casey and Brady were together in everything until we lost our Brady three years ago
  with complications from diabetes. Casey never had major medical issues, she was a little blind and her hearing was going and she was almost 16 years old.

In the past few weeks we started noticing a different behavior -
Marty and Casey going for a ride in golf cart
Deerfield Manor
 no interest in walks, no interest in food and weight loss, did not want interactions with us, aimlessly walking around the house or standing in corners. After looking for answers, we believe that she had a lot of the symptoms caused by Canine Cognitive Dysfunction.  We talked with our vet and made our decision based on her needs.  Our vet came to our home for the euthanasia.

 She had such an attitude and it always made us smile - she was definitely in charge - even up to four months ago when she would bark and let Marty know when he was going for a walk.  Casey in Gaelic means brave and alert and it suited her perfectly. 

Casey Gail will always be our "sweet baby girl."
  We sure do wish these little angels came with guarantees to outlive us. Our hearts are so empty and lonely without Brady and Casey.  They were our beloved pets.  I know she is with Brady over the Rainbow Bridge waiting for us to join them. 
We know our life with Brady and Casey was so much better than to have had a life without them. 
We know that for sure...

Judy and Marty
