My Little Dog Too

She watches out for kitties

Big bad bark

She chases all the birdies

and guards you in the dark.

Thanks, Bev. I feel better today. The first few hours are usually the most gut wrenching.

But, she moved on peacefully, at home, with her pack. She always had a shit fit when we took her to the vet, so I'm glad to have given her an anxiety-free end.

Thanks Bron and Laura. It's pretty darn devastating. Excepting my childhood dog, Denali was the doggie love of my life. My animal spirit guide.

I knew when she gave me that Debra Winger Look, but I wanted to stay in denial a bit longer.

In one of the sweeter aspects of her last night, she spent a few minutes making steady eye contact with each of us in turn. As befuddled as she had become, she had those few minutes of clarity -- enough to acknowledge each of us individually -- which had always been a habit of hers.

She was a sweet thing.

Thank you Mary! I know you suffered over Moe. But now you have your new littluns. I'm glad they're bringing you so much joy.
