For Shadow

My best friend died today.  

She was thirteen.  

Seems like last week she was a puppy.  

My friend for years.

Thanks for being you.  For all the years.  For as long as I'll remember.

I love you.

Sleep, baby.  You've earned the rest.

Condolences, Doctor. Hope she didn't suffer too much in her final days.

Thanks, GB.

It was, mercifully, not a prolonged event. And despite the fact she could keep down neither food nor drink on her last day, she was actually wagging her tail right up to the end. She went peacefully with her family around her.
