My dear little Shelly just passed away minutes ago. It wasn't a good weekend for her and I knew she was losing the fight but I had hope just the same. This morning though she threw up again and then got up on her bench to rest but looked really awful. Just minutes later she passed away. I am glad I was here with her.
At least she died in the one place she loved the most doing the regular routine of her day.
But this is a small consolation for the loss of such a dear friend and companion to me these past ten years.
Travel safely, Shelley. God speed.
