Goodbye Bean

We said goodbye to our friend Bean yesterday. It was time. She had been suffering from bad arthritis in her hips and back for a while as well as the side effects of medication she had been taking to help with the arthritis. Her life towards the end consisted of sleeping and eating. She coulldn't go for walks without huritng the next few days. She could barely make it up the stairs. But she had her good days too where she got around pretty good. Yesterday was one of those days. She was on special food becasue she was allergic to every kind of protein. She had skin lesions all over and was constantly irritated. She was a great dog. She was so intuative and sweet. We had her since she she was 7 weeks old. We bought her from a couple that who lived in a trailer. Their lab had a litter and they were advertising on a flyer at the local gas station we stopped at on the way back to Seattle from Cannon Beach 13 years ago.

She will be missed deeply. I only hope it starts to hurt less as time goes on.

Finn went trick or treaking with his buddy Owen who was a farmer (not a cowboy!).
