I'm so sorry for your loss. They leave a big hole when they go but when the time is right you will honour her with another lovey.
I'm sorry for your loss. It's an awful, unforgiving cancer.

We had a lovely 120 days and, then, a few quiet ones and a very sleepy,weak day that let me know it was time. She really never told when enough was enough (eating, playing, muzzle-punching to the end) but, as you say, it was my last gift to set her free from that body.
