For those of you that have been around a while, you will remember my sweet girl, Kora. She was my ginormous Doberman girl that we had for nearly 10 years. She was always a delight, and my constant companion while choring and riding. Any weather was fine with Kora, as long as she could be at the barn in it!
Today, we rode out to find a couple of our horses that were out in the back of the property. Kora and Millie, my GSD, are old hands at running with us when we ride out, so I thought nothing of it today. We were out about 40 minutes total, just walking. When we got to the barn, my ranch manager walked up the hill to our feed room to get buckets for the horses and Kora went along with her. I walked up a minute later and found Kora had collapsed into a seizure. Not a bad one overall, but her heart was racing so fast afterwards I thought it would burst. She couldn't get up, so we rolled her onto a blanket and took her to the front door. She seemed a bit better, not panting as hard and not as out of it, but when I asked her if she wanted to go in the house, she laid her head down and just passed away. Very, very peacefully, without any noticeable pain at all.
Kora: In loving memory of our beautiful girl...good night sweetheart, I love you.
