Saying goodbyes are never easy, they are always painful. A devastated pet parent received the news that her 12-year-old Border Collie Ela was suffering from oral cancer. She decided to put an end to her dog Ela’s suffering and came to the decision to put her to sleep.
Sarah Keith, 44, has spent more than a decade with her dog. She shared about the tragedy on social media and invited people to join her for Ella’s last walk on Fraistrope beach, in East Yorkshire, the Edinburgh News reported.
She said: “‘I thought maybe people who knew her would come down. Of course a lot of people work on Mondays, but I didn’t want to bother anyone on the weekend. The post just got shared and shared. And I had people from all parts of the country that would never be able to make the walk and message me.”
More than 30 dogs and 25 owners came to the walk. “When I arrived there were probably over 30 dogs and about 25 owners,” Metro reported.
“There was even a group with leashes, with not exactly social dogs, but they would have wanted to support them in their own way.”
The pet owner also shared that the dog suffered from arthritis and enjoyed playing with other dogs. On her last day, Ella loved to play with other dogs.
Sarah said: “There was a group of people with border collies and Ella loved to run with them. At one point there were six or seven chasing the same ball.”
Sarah said she was the best dog. “She was the best dog I ever had, and I’ve had a lot of dogs.”
She spent 11 amazing years with Ella before the horrible diagnosis.
