Celeste, Breeding Full Name Is Celestial Spirit
9/2/2009Our brave warrior Celeste never stopped fighting but we knew she needed to rest. I lost my soul mate, my best friend and our inspiration one month ago on 9/13. A true mamas girl we were joined at the hip from the day she joined our family. It seems like we were together for ever but it was only 5 years . Perhaps it was because when we first met she was still nursing a full litter of puppies and I told her I would be back for her and I came back for her. Or maybe cause it was just that she and I understood each other. She lived her life for 6 years in a kennel breeding golden babies and we were fortunate to get the opportunity to adopt her when she retired. As a true mamas girl she was always perfect and could do no wrong. Even though it was clear she was the one who stole something off the counter . Celeste was the sweetest loving girl, I remember when her sister Merry had to be out to sleep she kissed her before her last breath. On May 18 2020, Celeste’s leg fractured and we were given the option to amputate or put her to sleep. She was in such excruciating pain the decision had to be quick, I spent the weekend with her and knew despite her pain she had the spirit and will to live. She had the amputation and it was confirmed she had osteosarcoma. She was in the hospital for 2 nights and when I saw my girl she literally ran to me . She did remarkably well with 3 legs despite being 11 . We started her on chemo but after just one treatment we realized the cancer had spread to her lymph nodes. Celeste was the bravest sweetest girl in the world and my heart aches for her. Almost 4 months post amputation it was clear Celeste needed to rest despite her desire to fight. She was euthanized on 9/13 by dr Lauren who was just amazing. In memory of my sweet Celeste my heart will be with your forever.Lindsey AldrichWATCHUNG, New JerseyOctober 13, 2020
