In about half an hour....

In about half an hour, I'm going to take my little friend Velvet to the vet for the last time.

Here's a pic of her on a happier day:Velvet

She was always a hard dog to take a picture of....but she was a good companion and doggie friend.

Thanks everybody

Thanks everybody for the support and well wishes.

Miss Velvet passed away quietly in my arms a little after ten.  She had a calm and quiet morning and perked up on the way to the vet, but was very much ready to let go.

I'd spent a lot of time this last month trying to nurse her back to health but time was not with us.  I am at once relieved for her and feel a terrible emptiness in that part of my awareness that always paid attention to where she was in the room or house that I know will take time to get used to.  Your well wishes mean a lot to me.

And it's a brilliantly sunny day, first one in days.  I'll take that as a good sign.
