Ananda was our 12 year old Husky / German Shepard mix.
We had to put Ananda down. She was frantically pacing the house, panting very hard, couldn’t stay still, trying to crawl all over us (which was WAY out of character), and trembling like mad. We figured either she was in serious pain, (we suspected yet another bout with pancreatitis) or was having some sort of cognitive / nervous issue, and either way wasn’t fair to her to let her go on like that. Since we didn’t have the several hundred dollars for the diagnostics. As much as it hurt, we did the humane thing, and let her go.
She was our chief security officer, and took her job very seriously. she specialized in UPS drivers.
When not on duty, she was always in the mood for play… much to the frustration of Maggie.
