Rosie's cremation

Rosie was a sweet girl. No matter who you were she loved you. She was a wild and loving puppy at heart. She could tell when things were wrong and would do anything to cheer you up. She was completely different from any other animal we have had. Which is what made her our best friend. She absolutely loved us and bentlee. She loved cuddles and giving kisses. Unfortunately, her last heat cycle she caught an infection. We didnt catch it in time until the day she could hardly move and wasn't eating. She did so well of hiding the pain she was in. We took her into the vets office to see what was going on. We couldnt afford it but took her anyways because she needed to feel better.  Well they took xrays and it came back negative. So no findings were there. They decided to do blood work and other tests on her.  The results came back and it was bad news.. she had an infection called pyometra and it was spreading quickly. The dr said we had two options. The first one was surgery. The thing with that was with how much the infection spread, that the dr almost guaranteed that she wouldn't make it through the surgery. The surgery was 1400$. Which left us with the second option of putting her down. An option that broke our hearts. I asked the dr the time limit we had to make our decision and see what we can do. His response was that were lucky she made it this far and doesnt think she will make it through the night.  Which left us with the only option we dreaded of not doing. She was in so much pain and could barely walk. Most of you know me and know I hate asking for help but we're in a tight spot to where we cant pay the balance to get her ashes. We used every last penny we had. So were asking for help as much as we dont want to, but were out of options. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
