I want to share how Sexie came into my life. Sexie was the first dog I've ever owned. I had always been scared of dogs until one day I snapped out it and I wanted one. When my ex-husband and I were newlyweds in Omaha I decided I wanted a dog. He asked me what kind and I said a Rottweiler. At first he thought I was crazy, but after doing some research he agreed and the search began.
After looking for weeks we came across this lonely puppy in a crate that caught our eye. Maybe part of the reason she got our attention was because every time we asked how much she cost, her price went down. Lucky for her and I the price was right. Sexie found a home.
I feel like Sexie was part human. She'd get jealous if she wasn't getting attention. She'd watch tv with me. She knew how to hug, kiss, high five and shake. Sexie was so smart. She even knew that when one of other dogs did something bad to hide in the other room so she wouldn't get into trouble. Almost like she knew that shiz was gonna go down once mom got home and she didn't want any part of it.
Until I took her to the emergency vet on Wednesday, stomach problems were the extent of what I thought were her issues. It was when we got more X-rays done that the vet told me Sexie had a tumor on her heart. It was causing her to have heart failure and somehow that was causing her lungs to fill up with fluid. It was at that moment that I had to make the hardest decision of my life.
