We will miss our little girl, Xena.
We knew this was coming - she was 14 and had been losing weight, had stopped acting like herself, would collapse for no reason, wouldn't play with her toys, would just stop and stare into space. She had a clean bill of health from the vet - she was just getting old. Last week, when I gave her a bath, she just laid down in the bottom of the shower. She didn't attack the towel or do the doggie dance afterward, which are things she'd been doing all her life after every single bath. Her last meal was venison steak, and she got to snuggle with us in the bed one last time. Here are some pictures of her in better days:
