Penny Frances
10/1/2012 - 5/3/2019We rescued Penny Frances on 6/8/13.....but within a very short time, it was clear she rescued us. In spite of the fact that she wasn't a Pharaoh Hound, ( not even close) and that she grew from 24lbs to 70, she was loved and was loving everyday of her very short life. I always described myself as having not an ounce of " Magical thinking" in me, but when Penny was diagnosed with a terminal illness, I prayed so hard for that one in a million miracle.
When we realized her quality of life was deteriorating quickly, we called " Lap of Love". Words alone cannot describe how patient and compassionate Dr. Kristina was with us. She explained everything, assured us we were doing the right thing at the right time, and helped Penny transition with dignity and comfort. I was able to hold her through the entire process, and took comfort in my heart beating with hers. I am so grateful we chose to keep her home, in her own environment to keep her anxiety level down.
She ate an entire package of cheese as Dr, Kristina gave her the first injection telling me she was in control of her destiny to the very end. My heart is broken. Our loss is palpable, but Lap of Love , and specifically Dr. Kristina let us be a part of Penny's passing.
In our religion, when a loved one dies, we say " May her memory be for a blessing". Penny Frances was all that and more.
Thank you Dr, Kristina. You were amazing !!!!!
