Finley's Celebration of Life


Finley will be making her way to da land of infinite steaks and bacon tomorrow around 2:30 central time.

It just seems like she is getting worse everyday. She's having a harder time walking and standing and seeming more and more disoriented and had a couple of incontinence issues. And the yelping in pain is getting worse - it takes her forever to exhaust herself and just go to sleep. 

I know some of y'all were hoping she would get better or rally.

But the truth are, we think Finley had her rally. She survived her hip dislocation back in April 2020 (including an infection from the sling where her leg was literally starting to rot) was her rally. She managed to walk again (although never very good) and make it a whole nother year.

It is so sad, we are all gonna miss her. 

She's had a tuff life wif her itchies and arthritis. She also had a low-grade heart murmur her entire life.

But in true terrier fashion, she never gave up. We had a celebration of Finley dinner tonite - she got steak and vanilla ice cream. 

We got some steak too.

We're gonna miss our big sister.
