Mommy was sad yesterday. She had to make the decision to help one of our older rescues cross the Bridge. Aquilla was abandoned at the shelter by her people 2 months ago. She was almost 12 years old and had bad arthritis in her back legs. Mommy couldn't let her stay there, so she brought her home. She found out that Aquilla also had a tumor in her stomach, and she knew that her time with us would be short. She liked being outside, and Mommy would allow her to roam free. All of the other rescue pups respected her and yesterday, they all went to visit her. She got really bad this weekend, the tumor seemed to double in size and she couldn't get up to go outside. Mommy helped her go sit in the sun, and with Miss Lisa's help, the dogter came and helped her cross the Bridge. We'll miss you, Aquilla - run free, sweet angel. We'll see you again.
