My little Rina girl
My little rat terrier, Rina, passed away this morning. She was my first dog. I got her when I was six for Christmas. She was a great little dog and I love her to death. Her liver started failing two weeks ago and she was slowly improving until yesterday. She started bleeding from her mouth and she was very weak so we took her to the pet urgent care. They did a couple tests and gave her some medicine and they thought she would be fine. On the way  home she died in my arms in the car. That was the toughest thing I have ever been through. The worst part is she didn't get to see her favorite people (my mom and step dad) in her last moments.

She was such a great dog and I miss her very much.


  1. I'm so sorry :( I'll keep you and your family in my thoughts and prayers!

  2. Oh Mitch, what a terrible loss. She'd been in your life for such a long time. I'm sorry she didn't get her goodbyes with your mom and step dad, but I hope it's comforting that you got to be with her. Sounds like she was deeply loved and had a wonderful life with your family.
