Default Tiggy is an angel July 30, 2018

So many years since Sandy has posted her about the Diva... I'm sad to let you know that Tiggy passed away yesterday. Not from diabetes - other health issues. I believe she was 15 years old and she had been diabetic for 8 years.
With a broken heart we had to say goodbye to the queen of the house yesterday. NOT because of her diabetes or anything related to it But due to other complications. She lived a great 15 years... 8 of those as a diabetic and was a trooper everyday of her life! Donít be discouraged by this post, love your babies and give them your all��. It is a frustrating disease but I can attest they can live a very long and happy life with diabetes! Iíll miss you every day sweet Tiggy... run free at that bridge sweet girl������
I had the privilege of actually meeting Queen Tiggy... such a character.

She lives on helping others with Sandy's wonderful videos of Tiggy having her blood sugar tested:

Godspeed little girl and a huge hug to you, Sandy,

Natalie

Tiggy was a fighter for sure... over cane Cancer, broken bones, and after a rocky start did great with her diabetes!! But the time had come with a new mass that popped up over night on her back end that caused her to lose about 80% of strength and was causing her so much pain to get around. She decided she didnít want to eat for a couple days and totally denied any treats.... this definately wasnít tig! We felt in our hearts she was telling us she was tired and done😢. It was peaceful and for the first time ever she wasnít a shaking mess at the vet... she hated that place! So she was telling us itís ok

To all of the old members who were her when we were..thankyou!!!!! Without you I wouldnít have had those 8 years after she was diagnosed without you!!!! And for that I am blessed

To the new members. Keep plugging along!! Everyone of you can do this and have your babies live a long and healthy life!! It wonít always be easy but it can be done! This forum is a wealth of information and love. Itís another family that will help you get throu anything!

Hi Sandy, ... sorry to hear of Tiggy's passing. You did a wonderful job caring for her which I'm sure she knows. You, and yours, have my deepest condolences, and Godspeed to Tiggy.

So sorry about Tiggy! She was an inspiration to so many and her story is a great reminder that diabetic dogs can live a normal life span and thrive.

Thank you for sharing her with us! Wishing you peace and comfort.

Amy
