Default R I P Hermes cattldog

4/15/99 7/12/12 I lost my best friend. Hermes went everywhere with me. Only used a leash if it was mandatory. I have had several Cattledogs/Heelers in my life. She was a special one. I knew there was a problem when she stopped obeying my commands. She was going deaf. Then she stopped chasing the ball as she lost her eyesight. Then she stopped greeting me when she developed doggie dementia. It was heartbreaking. The once over active dog was now a couch potato. The only time she would make any noise was when I picked her up to take her outside. Even though she couldn't make it on her own she would growl a little to let me know she didn't want to be carried. My significant other and I would cry daily over her. I knew it was time when we took her to the vet. Unfortunately it did not go well as the vet screwed up. It was a painfull eperience for Hermes. My final memory is not a pleasant one. I have focused on the good memories. She was definitely a once in a lifetime dog.
