Rest in Peace, old girl
We had to put our lovely old Golden Retriever, Skeena, to sleep today. She was over 11 and suddenly fell ill. Luckily Pater was able to fly home from work to take her on one last trip in the boat over to the vet's. We could probably have kept her going for some time longer, but given our complicated lifestyle, we didn't think we could do that in a way that would have given her the comfort and independence she deserved, so we made a tough decision and let her go. She will be very much missed, especially by me. I'll probably be rather light on posting in the next few days while I get used to her absence.
