This morning our family made a tough decision after watching our beloved Shepherd decline in health over the last month. This past weekend, her body showed us that she just couldn't go on. Our children cried and we shared memories of her 10+ years with our family. Even in her last hours, with pain and bloating ...she was gentle with our children and loved on them in her own special way. She was such a treasure to our family providing fun, protection and companionship. We are sad this day missing our friend.
