RIP Miss Holly
Nathan and his faithful companion, Miss Holly
I just went to check on my beloved Miss Holly (the dawg) and found she had passed away in her sleep. Old age crept upon her with a heavy hand this year; first with a liver ailment .. then springing back to life, and now this autumn with aches and pains from the arrival of cold weather. She passed with a little labored breathing that I thought was just snoring. Just yesterday she was running around in the yard with a little gusto. But .. she labored getting up and down. Much love she gave, only asking for food and shelter. My heart is filled with many happy memories that will keep me warm through the grieving period. Rest in peace my beloved friend. Good night.
