Goodbye Flora

Sadly, we had to say good bye to Flora this month. We knew our remaining time with her would be short, so we have spent the last month spoiling and loving her. One night earlier this month she played in the snow and ate, not only her dinner, but an extra helping of bologna! The next morning it was clear that the tumor in her spleen was bleeding and that her time was near. I laid with her for about an hour and then we took her to the vet for her final journey. She did not suffer and her passing was very peaceful. I miss her terribly, but I know she had a happy life with us. St. Patrick's day would have been her 10th anniversary with us. I think we will have to eat an extra helping of corned beef in her honor this year! We miss you, Bobo!
