Guess we had high hopes when we named this border collie-sheltie cross "Fianna."

She never did live up to them: weak hind end that grew worse over the years. Vet ruled out lots of possibilities, including thyroid (we had her on weight management feed, and worked at exercise, but my wife said the dog always had weak hind legs. Joan's good at evaluating livestock.)

Well, it's been going from bad to worse, and today, after 11.5 years, I had to put her down. Quick and painless for her -- she died instantly, eating a dog cookie. And she wasn't much of a dog. But I'll miss her.
