My Dog of 16 Years Passed Away This Weekend
I just wanted to share with you, my Probate Fox family that my dog Cinder died this past weekend at the age of 18.
She was diagnosed with Canine Degenerative Myelopathy which is similar in many ways to Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS).
It is often seen in German Shepard’s and my beautiful Cinder was a German Shepard. She came in to my life 16 years ago as a rescue when she was approximately about two years old and she has been an important part of my families’ life.
Degenerative Myelopathy progressively weakens the rear limbs and over time complete paralyses them.
For Cinder it was not over when her rear limbs gave out as we were able to locate a wheel chair specifically designed for dogs experiencing this illness.
She lived her last 8 months going on her daily walks with this illness as happy as the circumstance would allow.
I keep thinking about the fact that someone saw a problem big enough that they just were not willing to give up on their dog and brought a solution to the market place.
I’m eternally grateful for the ingenuity of mankind and our ability to look at hardships such as this one and, “Say how can I turn this around? How can I make it better?”
It is sad that my Cinder died but that is part of this circle of life and even though she is not human; I still feel it. But at an intellectual level, we accept these realities and move forward.
Our executors and administrators go through this sense of loss every day; however, their loved one was a human being and usually a mother or a father who raised them.
What I discovered in my years of conversing with these sellers is that most of the time, yes they are sad for the passing of their love one however intellectually they understand that life must go on and that they need to take care of business.
The bills don’t stop and the need for work doesn’t either.
Probate is a very time consuming process that inherited sellers are tasked with and the need to get these properties off of their hands is of complete urgency.
Therefore I urge you to be the solution to these folks and help them move through the probate process.
Where there is a problem there is a solution.
Go and be the solution!
To your success,
Ernie “Holding Cinder Close to My Heart” Vargas
