Casey died this morning.
She had been ill, but was doing much better and then suddenly started failing last night. We thought we would lose her when she suddenly rallied and was better. But this morning... We hoped she would go peacefully here, but she fought it. At the end, she cried in pain... Or defiance... Or both. She always had more courage and strength than anyone else I know.
We wrapped her in her favorite blanket that she had since she was a puppy and took her to the vet.
My heart is broken. My little dog... I will never hold her again.
