Letting go of a sweet old girl

My sweet girl, Havana has been in Kidney failure since the fall. At 13, we weren't surprised and just wanted her to be comfortable in her last few months. She ran and played with the ball like nothing was even wrong. The past few weeks however have been up and down. January 29, 2013 was her 14th birthday. Yesterday (Jan 31) we decided it was her time and made an appointment with the vet for first thing in the morning. Being the sweet, considerate girl she always was, she died in her sleep instead. Rest in peace sweet girl.

What a beautiful girl. That great photo speaks volumes about her. I am so sorry that she had to leave. What a huge loss. Her peaceful passing really is such a amazing gift. It is never easy so take care and good luck with your healing.

So sorry for your loss of Havana. That really is a lovely picture of her that you've posted. You were lucky to have her so long but even 14 yrs. seems too short. Our Zeke went the same way . . . I felt like it was a blessing for him and for us. May her memories linger with you forever.
